Each year brings new tile trends, and 2020 is no exception! Coverings – the largest international tile & stone show in North America – presents the latest industry insights on tile. From modernized marble-style ceramic tile and expanding gauged porcelain applications, to wood-look and speckled surfaces, this year’s most important tile trends are primed for a number of residential and commercial designs.  

Attendees will be immersed in new and unique trends from North American and international manufacturers, understand the core benefits of specifying tile by examining its many points of differentiation, learn appropriate specification and innovation applications for residential and commercial usage of tile, and identify procedures for successful tile installation by reviewing standards and processes from industry leaders.
