Dynamic Intentionality

Natural and Stone World magazine are proud to offer a one-of-a-kind event to stone companies throughout Connecticut! You will benefit from a “Town Hall” environment that is tailored to the attendee and the topics most important to fabricators.

You will learn about:

  • Communication with Clients: Material selections and design details (seams, edges, finishes, and accessories) can all be visually communicated to ensure that expectations are understood by all parties.
  • Communication with Production: Review which information is most helpful in communicating with shop/production employees to ensure error-free fabrication.
  • Communication with Installers: Review which information is the most helpful to installation crews to ensure that all site details are met.
  • Create a plan to utilize shop drawings in an effective manner to ensure success.
