DALLAS, TX - A call for presentations has been issued for the StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas 2009 educational program, scheduled to take place October 21 to 24, 2009 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. The program will provide in-depth, comprehensive three-hour workshops; 90-minute seminars; and forum discussions with the goal of generating discussion, garnering ideas, finding solutions and providing motivation to attendees to overcome the current challenging economic conditions. StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas, which is owned and produced by Hanley Wood Exhibitions in collaboration with VeronaFiere, the organizer of Marmomacc, is seeking presenters interested in facilitating these goals and growing the stone industry.
