In a first for a US trade show, Coverings is dedicating a booth to its attendees. Booth 3728 is Coverings Central and it’s a hub with a lounge area, Internet access and it’s the site where our speakers will be giving their presentations about social media.
Attendees can find a little bit of everything at Coverings Central. The space will have a dedicated Internet lounge and gathering area. Part of that Internet lounge will be an array of Internet-connected computer monitors that will let anybody check his or her email, Facebook status, FourSquare location or Twitter updates. Coverings is hosting the official Tweetup at Coverings Central on Tuesday, April 17 at 4:00 PM. The following day, Wednesday the 18th at 4:00 PM, Coverings Central will be the site where Tile Magazine sponsors a free happy hour.
Coverings Central will allow you to meet up in real life with the people you already “know” through the social web and will also allow you to learn more about Coverings 2013. In 2013, the Ultimate Tile + Stone Experience is heading to Atlanta, Georgia, April 29-May 2. Stop by the Atlanta photo booth in Coverings Central and get your photo taken in front of famous Atlanta landmarks and take the framed picture home with you.
Next to the lounge, and in its own space will be where our 15-minute social media talks will take place. If you’re curious about how to start a blog, a Twitter account or a Facebook page, Coverings Central is the place to be and our speakers are the people to ask.
Part of the booth too will be the entries in the PROJECT: Green competition, sponsored by ED+C magazine.
