The International Surface Event once again returned to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV, and the exhibition hall was buzzing with activity throughout the three-day event
March 13, 2020
The opening day of The International Surface Event (TISE), including StonExpo/Marmomac, drew a countless amount of visitors who eagerly waited in a seemingly endless line to register for the stone, tile and flooring exhibition.
It only took me 23 years, but I finally made it out to visit the Indiana Limestone Belt. I’d have to say it was long overdue. A big “thank you” goes to my friend Todd Schnatzmeyer at the Indiana Limestone Institute who made my excursion possible, along with all of the companies that graciously welcomed me into their quarries and mills.
Obra Blanca Expo (OB Expo), a new tradeshow of the Tile Council of North America (TCNA), has joined with Informa, the world's largest exhibition organization, to bring StonExpo to México. OB Expo with StonExpo Mexico will take place October 15–17, 2019, at Expo Santa Fe, México City.
Stone World was started by Mike and Stephanie Lench in November 1984. At that time, GranQuartz was busily introducing machinery and equipment for the stone industry to include large diameter (11-6 foot) block saws, automatic abrasive line polishers, edge polishers, etc.
This year, Stone World celebrates its 35th anniversary. And while the magazine itself has evolved through the decades, the stone industry at large has also experienced change and growth, as well as some hardships over time.
Excitement builds for The International Surface Event (TISE) 2019, including StonExpo/Marmomac, as the show will present a new way of learning and feature many innovative products for industry members

Deemed the stone event for stone industry professionals, StonExpo/Marmomac is a B2B stone exhibition under The International Surface Event (TISE) brand. At the beginning of each year, the show draws thousands of people from across the globe to exhibit, as well as to tour the exhibition hall.
StoneExpo, which is part of The International Surface Event (TISE), provides an arena for fabricators from various regions of North America to gather together to share ideas and experiences, learn about new products on the market and to meet new people.
In this issue of Stone World magazine, we discuss different digital solutions available for fabricators, as well as talking to a fabricator about his experience to a fully digital shop. We also learn about the process used to restore the stone exterior for two historic buildings, as well as learning about the history of Women in Stone!
