OBERLIN, OH -- On May 21, Cosentino Center hosted a successful Wine & Stone event at its Canton, MA, location. The event was targeted to architects and designers, with approximately 20 people in attendance. Although the Marble Institute of America (MIA) has previously tested the event in two markets, Cosentino Center is the first company to schedule an event through the new Wine & Stone program.

"It was a great success," said Renee Nardo, Design Sales Manager at Cosentino. "MIA helped me put together a wonderful event. It was well received and many guests commented on how much they enjoyed the connection between the selection of stone and the relation to wine selection."

The Wine & Stone program, powered by MIA's Women in Stone committee, educates participants on the similarities and uniqueness of each product. It offers an innovative opportunity to bring stone industry and design professionals together for a fun, educational purpose.

This new MIA program has already attracted attention and is quickly growing in popularity.

"We have had many inquiries already," said MIA's Carol Wilkins. "My advice to companies is to plan early. I recommend anyone who wants to have a quality event to contact MIA."
