Coverings Tile Show 2019

I don't think it's too early to start talking about the upcoming Coverings show to be put on in Orlando during April next year. I've been attending since 2003, and the show has been going on much longer than that. You'll find the John Bridge "Couch" in the Russo Trading booth at the show. I look forward to Coverings every year. It's great seeing friends and associates, and each year I seem to come away with quite a bit of additional knowledge about the business I've been in for 40 years or so.

I would now like to introduce Karen Trudeau and Kelly Burchard who would like to apprise you of special features and events of the show and answer questions you might have.

Hello from Coverings!

Thanks so much John, and hello everyone! Please let us know if you have any questions about Coverings 2019 happening in Orlando April 9-12 (Yay! We know this is a favorite location) and we'll be happy to track down answers for you.

I'm sure many of you already know, but registration is open and you can do that now on coverings.com/register.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at the show this year!

Just talked to the wife about going for the first time, my older sister lives in Ormond Beach so probably bunk with her and make it a family vacation. I hope to shake your hand John, and maybe see if CX is who I imagine him to be in person, is there a police uniform with a square 4¼x4¼badge? J/K CX

Looking forward to meeting you, Justin, and you too, Shawn.

CX is a real person, but he probably won't be at the show. Who knows, though?

Don't bet too heavily on the outcome of that, Justin. And only the Tile Ranger wears a badge in this industry, best of my knowledge.

Wife and my sister have already organized us going and staying at her house on the beach, so God willing, I’ll be there.

Personally I think CX draws a hard line on right and wrong... which is good, but every once in awhile, I see that big ol teddy bear personality pop out.

Yes, he made a point of coming by to check on me after Katrina, and we went and enjoyed a breakfast.
