Briefly noted: new stone fair in Portugal in May this year

(March 2013) In order to promote Portugal’s ornamental stones, the fairground ExpoSalão in Batalha about 100 km north of Lisbon will host a new fair from May 16 to 19, 2013. Named simply „Stone“, its aim will be to „establish the perfect connection between national offer and international demand“, as informs the organizer on a webpage.

Targets shall not only be the „well known“ markets like China, France and Spain, but also „strong markets like the U.S. or Arab countries to which an access has to be created“, according to the webpage in Portuguese.
