Antolini Luigi event will be among highlights at SFA Mega Worshop in Nashville

Attendees at this year’s Stone Fabricators Alliance (SFA) Mega Workshop in Nashville, TN — scheduled for October 10 to 12 — will have the opportunity to attend a presentation by the industry’s leading supplier and processor of natural stone, Antolini Luigi of Verona, Italy. This three-hour program, entitled “Antolini: The Ultimate Stone Romance,” will encompass all aspects of processing striking and exotic natural stones — from quarrying through to the final installation.

In conceiving the event, Antolini acknowledges the unique role of the stone fabricator as the one who typically presents the finished products to customers — whether they be architects, designers or homeowners. The goal is to empower fabricators with the insight and education required to inspire the customer to buy on emotion. Antolini will deliver a detailed and professional lecture about processing, polishing and the selection of stone — with the ultimate goal being to help attendees successfully market higher-margin natural stone products to the high-end consumer community.

“Antolini: The Ultimate Stone Romance” is scheduled for October 11th at 1 p.m., followed by a dinner hosted by OHM International, where the Antolini Signature Collection will be on display.

The SFA is a fully volunteer organization of fabricators looking to raise the level of quality in the natural stone industry by sharing information, skills and education at no cost.

The Mega Workshop is being held at the Nashville Convention Center, and attendance is free. For more information, visit the Stone Fabricator Alliance website.
