There will be shown more products and ideas for construction and interior architecture with marble, granite, etc. than before
Natural Stone will play a special role at this year’s The International Surface Event (TISE) from 01 to 03 February 2022 in Las Vegas, composed of Tile Expo, Surfaces and StonExpo/Marmomac. There will be a new hall under the brand name “The Natural Stone Pavilion – brought to you by the Natural Stone Institute and Marmomac“. To realize this initiative, the NSI has entered a partnership with the fair’s organizer Informa and Veronafiere.
In a talk with Stone-Ideas.com, NSI CEO Jim Hieb explained the idea looking back at past issues of the show: “40% of the visitors to StonExpo/Marmomac wanted more natural stone.” However, exhibitors did not want to display right next to man-made materials. “So we decided to seize the opportunity to create a special pavilion dedicated to natural stone.“
So stone as such, in the form of products and ideas for construction, interior decoration and gardening, among others, will play a stronger role than ever at the fair. But, as in the years before, the presentation of machinery and tools will also be a focus.
More than this, there will be a “Natural Stone Theater“ in the Natural Stone Pavilion. This is reminiscent of Hall 1 at Marmomac with its design ideas. In Las Vegas, however, events for further education are to take place there. The qualification of the industry is a special concern of the NSI.
