Coverings 2014. 100% Italian design in Las Vegas
April 29 to May 2 will see the 25th edition of Coverings, the most important event across the Atlantic to find out the latest trends in the world of ceramics.
The exhibition space of the Las Vegas Convention Centre will offer over 900 brands and companies from all over the world plenty of scope for dialogue.
Design engineers, architects, distributors and manufacturers from over 50 countries will be meeting at the fair once again this year, with the usual in-depth encounters and seminars taking a look at upcoming trends.
Dates for the diary
At least 3 workshops and conferences not to be missed.
#Specification 2.0 – Harnessing the Full Potential of Tile in Modern Specs
Expert Ryan Fasan will be taking a look at the evolution of ceramic surfaces, analysing markets and sales mechanisms from the 1970s onwards, for a clearer understanding of choices and trends in the tastes of the main international contractors.
#Man Made Natural: Insights Into the Authenticity of Materials
The multi-faceted universe of materials is in constant expansion, and raises a major issue for us to reflect upon: does “good” necessarily mean “real”? Technological progress and the way it interacts and integrates with biological dynamics – think of engineered wood, for example – leads us to question the meaning of “natural”. Is “natural” always preferable? The answer will be provided by Grace Jeffers, editor of The New Materials Handbook.
#Social Media for Architects and Designer
An overview of how to make the most of social media marketing strategies to expand customer base and attract potential consumers. Well-known names from the digital marketing world will be gathering to explain the best practices to make your mark online and to tell a few success stories.
Once again this year Mirage will be taking part in Coverings.
