There is a positive outlook for the natural stone industry in Europe. After a lengthy break, the industry platform, Stone+tec, will finally be held once again at its customary location in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg.
Stone+tec, the International Trade Fair for Natural Stone and Stone Technology, will not take place as planned from 12 to 15 May 2021. The trade fair could have been held in compliance with the hygiene concept of the Bavarian State Government in principle, however the number of registrations did not develop as hoped due to the difficult worldwide situation currently.
A new date has been set for Stone+tec, the keymeeting point for the stone industry in Central Europe that offers a comprehensive range of products and services for all aspects of natural stone used in construction, gravestones, monuments and design.
By focusing on “sustainability”and “design”, Stone+tec 2020 will create new momentum for European stone workers, from stonemasons to industrial operations. The International Trade Fair for Natural Stone and Stone Technology will be held in Nuremberg from 17 to 20 June 2020. New and expanded specialshows on local natural stone and design, and an extensive range of materials, machines and tools, gravestones and accessories will feature at this top-qualitysector gathering. The “Stone for Future”design competition, being held for the first time, willrecognize designs for functional natural stone products, and the winning entries will be made specially for Stone+tec
In less than a year it will be that time again, when the 21st round of Stone+tec takes place at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 17 to 20 June 2020. This international trade fair for natural stone and stone technology is where industry experts gather for professional knowledge-sharing. They can also look forward to a diverse supporting program. As well as special shows, panel discussions and high-Caiberpresentations, several awards ceremonies form an integral part of the event. Stone+tec receives active support from major industry associations.
On June 15, representatives from Women in Stone and Meisterfrauen met during Stone+tec 2018 in Nuremberg, Germany. With similar missions to empower women within the stone industry, the two groups met to learn more about each other’s history, organizational setup and goals for the future.
As the result of a joint decision by the Stone+tec Trade fair’s honorary sponsors, BIV (Association of German Stonemasons) and DNV (German Natural Stone Association), the advisory board of Stone+tec and the organiser, NürnbergMesse GmbH, the next Stone+tec Trade Fair will take place in 2018.
