Held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from Thursday, October 28 through Saturday, October 30, in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Marble Institute of America, StonExpo 2004 is already on track to break exhibitor and attendee records, according to Pennie Sabel, Executive Director of StonExpo Federation, the nonprofit organization that has produced the event since 1987.
â€œIf it's about stone, it's all at StonExpo 2004,â€ said Sabel. â€œMuch of our exhibitor space has already been allocated; the majority of it reserved before last year's show even closed.
â€œExcitement is also building among potential attendees. New ideas, new business, important networking and the industry's highest quality educational programming and seminars are just a few of the reasons the who's who of the stone industry make attending StonExpo a top priority every year.â€
StonExpo is the only industry event of its kind produced by the stone industry for the stone industry, according to Sabel. â€œOur exhibitors and attendees appreciate that their investment in this event is truly an investment in their industry's success,â€ stated Sabel. â€œAll event profits are channeled back to the stone industry, through, for example, StonExpo Federation's support of the new Natural Stone Council.â€
