Industry initiatives & Natural Stone Awards project profiles

Taking place in the stunning South Gallery rooms overlooking the Royal Victoria Dock at ExCeL, London, the Industry Day is been organised in conjunction with Stone Federation Great Britain.

Your Natural Stone Show visitor badge will permit entry into the Industry Day and all sessions are free to attend with no pre-booking required.

Day 2 of the conference will explore the practical and aesthetic considerations when choosing stone. Architects and the stone providers themselves will then put this into context by profiling a range of award-winning natural stone projects.

The latest industry initiatives being championed by the Stone Federation will also be covered. These include The Ethical Stone Register, guidance for the use of natural stone in swimming pools and Health & Safety in stone working.
