Rock Stars – an Emerging Leaders Program – honours the best and brightest young talent in the tile and stone industry. Since its conception, the program has recognized dozens of young leaders who have connected at the Coverings show, through mentorship and networking opportunities. The program underscores Coverings mission to support the growth and success of the industry by recognizing top-notch talent and fostering networking and educational opportunities.
Individuals under the age of 35 and currently employed by or as an architect, designer, distributor, retailer, contractor/installer, fabricator, specifier, trade association or manufacturer in the tile or stone industry are eligible for the award and must be nominated by a colleague who is also active within the industry.
Selected 2018 Rock Stars and their nominators will be honoured at the Rock Star Awards Luncheon during Coverings 2018. In addition to being profiled on the Coverings website for one year, Rock Stars will also receive a free one-night hotel stay in Atlanta for Coverings 2018, social media promotion, inclusion in a Coverings press release and a dedicated Rock Star badge ribbon.
“Now in its fourth year, the Rock Star program has recognized dozens of young industry leaders, providing mentorship and networking opportunities to connect industry veterans and rising stars,” said Jennifer Hoff, President of Taffy Events, the management company for Coverings. “The program underscores our mission to support the growth and success of the industry, and we continue to be inspired by new talent.”Coverings | coverings.com
