Press releases about Stone+tec
As the result of a joint decision by the 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. In response to the express preference of many exhibitors, visitors and professional associations, the trade fair, which takes place every two years, will be held in even years in future. The next Stone+tec fair has therefore been scheduled for 13-16 June 2018.
Stone+tec expands its Advisory Board to bolster its position as the meeting place for the entire stone sector
As of now Stone+tec, the international trade fair for natural stone and stone processing technology, can count on greater professional support from within the sector. On 19 November 2015, the Advisory Board decided to add four new members. “This will ensure that all sectors and trades associated with stone processing can have their interests represented,” explains Beate Fischer, Project Manager for Stone+tec at NürnbergMesse. The Advisory Board is made up of leading associations and companies and provides advice on the content and organisation of the trade fair. The new Board members are two representatives from the VDNV (Verband deutscher Naturstein Verarbeiter, Association of German Natural Stone Processors), as well as Dr Wolfgang Baumann (Dr. Baumann Group) and Josef Kusser (Kusser Granitwerke).
Stone+tec 2015 closed its doors on Saturday 16 May after welcoming a total of 15,162 trade visitors*. Over a period of four days, the trade fair presented the entire spectrum of modern natural stone processing, from traditional natural stone and innovative materials through machinery, tools, chemical care products and cleaners to gravestones and religious masonry. “Stone+tec 2015 was able to create a positive outlook for the industry,” says Petra Wolf from the NürnbergMesse management team. “The booths were well frequented and the mood in the halls signalled much more confidence than in previous years. In particular, the new compact hall layout was very well received by exhibitors and visitors.” A total of 446 companies from 31 countries exhibited in Nuremberg.
