The showcase event for the UK stone industry returns to London's premier exhibition venue, ExCeL 30 April – 2 May 2013
The industry said it wanted the show to be slightly later in the year, so we have obliged by moving our dates to late April/ early May to suit exhibitors and visitors alike.
The stunning waterfront location of ExCeL is in the heart of the thriving Royal Docks within easy reach of central London. The recent completion of its £165 million phase 2 expansion, new on-site hotels (including the impressive four star Aloft) and significantly enhanced transport links all underline the level of investment that has gone into this part of London for the 2012 Olympic games. This construction impetus will provide significant market opportunities for exhibitors in 2013.
The natural stone market in the UK has grown enormously over the past decade as architects, designers and clients have made stone the material of choice for all kinds of construction, hard landscaping and interior design. And, of course, it’s still much in demand for conservation and restoration work, and even memorials.
Now entering its 19th year, the Natural Stone Show is the only UK event to focus exclusively on natural stone and directly related products and services. If you supply stone or any of the tools, machinery, fixing or consumables associated with its use, then this is the show for you because it’s where your customer will be 30 April – 2 May next year.
You will be in good company. Exhibits include a vast range of stone from all over the world - granite, marble, limestone, sandstone, travertine and slate for use in all types of work - flooring, cladding, hard landscaping, kitchens, bathrooms, roofing, fireplaces, memorials and sculpture together with fixing systems, sealants, adhesives, cleaning, materials, stone working machinery, tools and other related products and services.
The stone industry and its customers visit the stone show because they know they will find solutions they seek; something new that their business will profit from for many years to come. Whether it's a new material that becomes a best-selling line, the latest technology to improve productivity, new relationships with new suppliers or valuable knowledge accrued from our free Conference programme and specialist advice area..
