STONEXPO/MARMOMACC AMERICAS LAUNCHES STATE-OF-THE-ART WEB SITE . . .

January 23, 2009

StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas unveiled an all-new, redesigned Web site. Among many technical upgrades, the highlight is a portal system for attendees and exhibitors called ConnectionPOINT. Logging into ConnectionPOINT allows attendees to view show specific information by year and register for multiple shows by Hanley Wood, the owner and producer of the event. Exhibitors are able to view their past booth sizes and sponsorships across all Hanley Wood shows and for the first time, they are able to apply for booth space and sponsorships electronically.

“The new site is an incredible upgrade from what we’ve been able to offer our customers in the past,” said Dana Teague, Show Director. “Not only are we increasing the online experience for exhibitors and attendees alike, we have pioneered features that will become industry standards for show sites of the future.”

The site features two distinct sides - one for exhibitors and one for attendees - with RSS feeds, an online sponsorship gallery and an industry resource center complete with reference sites and archives of past show information.

“Our intention was to create a site that will be useful not only in providing pertinent show information, but as a year-round resource and reference site for the stone industry,” Teague said.

The new site is located at www.stonexpo.com, and StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas will be held October 21 to 24, 2009 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.
