ITSS Expos has contracted with The National Training Center for Stone and Masonry Trades (NTC) to develop and produce educational sessions related to the stone industry. NTC's educational sessions will be a central focus of the trade show's cost-free conference program, beginning with ITSS-Miami, which is set to take place from March 31 to April 2, 2005.

Richard Caires, president of ITSS Expos stated: “We are extremely pleased that NTC has joined with ITSS to provide world-class educational seminars at all ITSS events in Las Vegas, Miami and New York. We offered our first seminars at ITSS-Las Vegas this past October, and the positive response warranted the expansion of the program. NTC and its founder, Fred Hueston, are well known in the industry with an excellent reputation for delivering the very best in educational programs. Hueston will structure a comprehensive series of seminars on important stone-related subjects deemed most interesting to attendees, and will bring together industry leaders as speakers. All educational seminars at ITSS events are underwritten by the show's producers and are free of charge to attendee participants. Designated NTC sessions will be certified for continuing education credits for members of ASID and AIA.

Fred Hueston, president of NTC stated: “NTC is very enthusiastic about our new partnership with the ITSS Expos organization.”
