Make your mark on the tile industry in Booth 9612 (Hall C). The Tile Heritage Foundation invites all attendees and exhibitors to leave their imprint on tile for the Global Monumental Hand-Print Mural. With just a $25 donation, you can press your hands, name, thoughts or logos into a wet clay tile and become a part of the mural.

Must Pet > Shelter Dogs at the Art Tile Courtyard

In case you haven’t already heard the buzz (or barking), but there are some seriously adorable dogs on the Coverings show floor. The TCNA Art Tile Courtyard, Booth 7249, located in the heart of the Art Tile Village, is featuring beautifully tiled doghouses provided by TCNA members. These decorated doghouses are wonderful displays of creativity using tile and will be donated to an Atlanta-area pet charity during a ceremony taking place today. Stop by, view the doghouses, and pet some pooches!
