The eighth edition of Piedra, the International Natural Stone Fair, will take place from May 5 to 8, 2010 at Feria de Madrid, in Madrid, Spain. Organized by IFEMA and promoted by the Spanish Natural Stone Federation (FDP), the fair will once again feature the leading manufacturers, exporters, importers and distributors of natural stone and machinery in Spain, complemented by a solid selection of companies from abroad.

The exhibition at Piedra 2010 will encompass products and services relating to the following segments: quarrying, stone processing, handcrafted stone, decoration, design, restoration, stone installation, machinery, abrasives, tools and accessories, funerary art and air/water treatment. The fair will also feature the participation of associations linked to the industry, as well as the specialized press.

The event takes place every two years, and in 2008, Piedra drew a total of 409 exhibitors, including 231 companies from Spain. They exhibited across a net area of more than 243,500 square feet.

The event is attended by natural stone distributors, quarriers and processors as well as architects, builders, developers, project planners, interior designers and other specifiers of natural stone. In 2008, a total of 14,355 people attended Piedra, including 12,471 from Spain (86.88%) and 1,884 foreign visitors from 78 different nations.

The general appeal of the event is expected to be strengthened by the concurrent staging of Veteco, the International Window, Curtainwall and Structural Glass Trade Show, which is due to take place between May 4 to 7, 2010, also at Feria de Madrid.
