Coverings, the ultimate tile + stone experience, has named O’Reilly-DePalma its agency of record for its next annual gathering, to be held April 29 – May 2, 2013, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. O’Reilly-DePalma will be responsible for all public relations efforts on behalf of the show, including pre-show, post-show and onsite media coverage; a VIP Press Tour for selected shelter and architectural media; and the creation of a publicity planner and press kit.
“We are delighted to welcome the O’Reilly-DePalma team, as we work to make North America’s largest tile and stone exposition an even bigger success in 2013, our first time ever in Atlanta,” says Elena Grant, Vice President of Marketing for National Trade Productions. NTP manages the entire event for Coverings, including registration, sales, marketing, PR, the show floor and special events.
