According to VeronaFiere, Marmomacc makes a strong effort to develop international ties with a host of countries, including India, China, Brazil, the U.S. and Middle East. In particular, Marmomacc has built a strong partnership in the U.S. that initiated StonExpo/ Marmomacc Americas, which will be held from January 25 to 27, 2011 at the Mandalay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.  Additionally, VeronaFiere and Confindustria Marmomacchine have created an "exhibition in an exhibition" for the stone, materials and technologies sector as part of Saudi Stone-Tech, which will be held from October 10 to 13, 2011 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
