Stone fabricators looking for practical information on the trade will be presented with a broad range of education opportunities at Coverings 2003, including two sessions presented by Stone World Magazine.

Once again, Stone World will be moderating a Fabricators Forum as part of the Vision 2003 education program at Coverings. The session will be organized as a roundtable discussion, which will allow participants to share their professional experiences related to stone fabrication today.
