Encompassing two main islands and a region on the mainland, Xiamen is a port city on China’s southeast coast, across a strait from Taiwan. With its location near the sea and more than 12,000 stone-related companies in the surrounding region, Xiamen has become an important player in the stone industry. A total of one-third of its exports are stone products. As a result, the Xiamen Stone Fair has experienced significant growth in recent years and has developed an international presence. As always, the stone exhibition is scheduled from March 6 to 9, and will be a display of stone products, fabrication and quarrying equipment, and tooling and accessories from exhibitors around the world.
Since it was founded in 2001, the Xiamen Stone Fair has continually expanded. Visitors today will be able to tour a total of nearly 2 million square feet of exhibit area. The show will feature more than 2,000 exhibitors from 56 countries. Judging by past records, show management anticipates more than 150,000 attendees from 146 countries at the 2019 event.
