Day 2 highlights from the 2017 Natural Stone Show

Day 2 was even busier than the opening day with show-on-show visitor figures continuing to reveal growth, as you would expect from a show that is 19 per cent larger than 2015.

Fabricators and quarry operators have had an excellent choice of machinery to select from too, with a comprehensive range of options available from all of the major manufacturers and brisk business being reported. 

Tiling and stone contractors were also impressed with the range of fix, seal and maintain solutions being presented with special show offers from Trimline, Rubi, Lithofin, Raimondi, Faber, Dry Treat, Ardex, Stone Care Europe and Sherwin-Williams (Geocel). 

The Industry Day of the Conference presented excellent content with David Richardson promoting the Ethical Stone Register and Barry Hunt discussing the latest guidance on stone for swimming pools.  A range of award-winning natural stone projects were also profiled by architects with Tim Must from Squire & Partners providing an interesting case study on 14 Grosvenor Square, London and Mike Stiff from Stiif + Trevillion showcasing 131 Sloane Street, London.

The Conservation Day will see the launch of the Stone Federation Heritage Register followed by a morning session organised by the English Stone Forum that examines the issues of authenticity and appearance when repairing historic buildings. During the afternoon Historic England offer an overview of some recent developments in stone conservation, including updates from recent research projects.
