Marmomacc, the leading international stone industry trade show, is offering free admission to trade visitors who pre-register online. Held annually at Veronafiere in Verona, Italy, Marmomacc is a global showcase of stone materials and machinery. In 2007, more than 1,500 exhibitors from 50 countries attracted over 63,000 trade visitors from 120 countries.

"Marmomacc is one of the greatest stone trade fairs in the world," said Bill Ruoff, whose company, Dakota Granite of Milbank, SD, exhibited last year. "It always manages to draw a lot of people looking to source stone or for up-to-date information on new products, as well as on those they are already familiar with."

Marmomacc gives attendees the opportunity to view the latest stoneworking machinery and technologies, to directly source stone for commercial projects and to view the full spectrum of stone materials available for residential applications. Each year, the show features a number of architectural exhibits and conferences devoted to designing with dimensional stone. For more information, visit
