To gear up for "Material Matters" -- Tile of Spain's exclusive New York event scheduled for October 20, 2011 -- the organization is building an online portfolio of everything there is to love about Spanish culture, design and architecture -- a SpainFolio.
Whenever I attend a major U.S. stone industry event, one of the first things I circle on my calendar is the “Fabricator Forum,” where industry members gather and present their issues to a panel of industry experts. These forums generally do not have a rigid agenda, and they sort of follow a “Town Hall” format, where people share their problems (and hopefully solutions) with their peers.
In general, the education program at stone trade shows such as Coverings will include a “Fabricator Forum,” where attendees discuss current issues with a panel of industry experts. Historically, these sessions have focused on practical concerns, such as fabrication methods and installation challenges.
