Report from Latin America: VitÃ³ria Stone Fair is primed for success
Given Brazil’s position of prominence in the international stone industry - they are by far the top exporter of granite to the U.S. - it is not surprising that the Vitória Stone Fair has shown solid growth since moving to Vitória, Brazil in 2002. The event - which will take place from February 7 to 9, 2007 - has become a showcase for Brazil’s plentiful stone resources, as leading producers from the Espírito Santo State and around the country are on hand.
A record 31,202 visitors attended the 2006 event, including more than 2,000 foreign visitors from 58 different nations.
In addition to conducting business at the fair itself, attendees have the opportunity to visit the many stoneworking companies, warehouses and ports in the region and throughout the Espírito Santo State.
