I’ve been attending Coverings expos for more than a decade. It’s a great event to see the latest in global tile trends, styles and technologies without a passport. The top three tile regions of the world for bringing tile to the US are Spain, Italy and North America, so rather than travel across a continent and ocean to Bologna or Valencia, I can hop a plane to Orlando or Las Vegas. This year, for the first time, I’ll be leading a Wellness Tour and presenting my WELLNESS ADVANTAGE presentation. Here’s a 2023 Coverings Show link for design and building industry colleagues to register and attend. My talk is at 12:30 PM on Thursday, April 20 with a book signing before (Noon) and tour afterward (2 PM).
