With six months to go momentum continues to build for the 13th UK Natural Stone Show and the new Hard Surfaces exhibition that will co-locate alongside it. The combined events will be an even greater attraction to the design and construction communities, attracting more visitors than ever.

An extra hall has been contracted at ExCeL for the Hard Surfaces exhibition, increasing capacity to 180 exhibitors. The image above shows James Campion (left), Head of Sales at ExCeL, London, with Richard Bradbury, Managing Director of The QMJ Group, signing off the expansion plans.

As well as an extensive range of surface solutions in natural stone, porcelain and UCS, there will be all the ancillaries – cladding systems, adhesives, sealants, grouts, cleaning materials, decorative architectural finishes, machinery, tools and mechanical fixings.

There will be a curated ‘Hard Surfaces Showcase’ featuring over 100 materials in innovative uses; a day dedicated to architects; a gallery of the Natural Stone Awards winning projects being announced in December; 30+ CPD-accredited seminars covering major issues involved in selecting and using natural and engineered materials; an area focused on conservation; the Stone Federation Village; and much more……
