Positive showing for StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas

March 3, 2014

For those in search of the full spectrum of decorative materials in one location, The International Surface Event was the place to be. Not only could one find stone and stoneworking technology, but with StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas taking place in conjunction with Surfaces and TileExpo, the exhibit halls showcased ceramic tile, tile-setting products, carpet, wood, linoleum and pretty much any other material you were looking for.

The International Surface Event took place from January 27 to 30, 2014 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. Exhibits were open from January 28 to 30, and the Education Program went from January 27 through January 30.

In addition to stoneworking technology, particularly for residential countertop fabrication, StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas had exhibits of natural stone, maintenance products and more.

Hands-on demonstrations could be found at “The Cage,” presented by the Stone Fabricators Alliance, which also included hands-on testing of the newest fabrication products as well as demonstrations.

A range of classroom sessions also took place at StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas, including an open Fabricator Forum, which is recapped in this issue.

You don’t have to wait another year to see this broad range of products, as The International Surface Event East is taking place in Miami Beach, FL, from October 19 to 22, 2014 (exhibits from October 20 to 22). For more information, visit
