21/6/10 – Stone+tec sets 2011 Exhibition date
21 June 10
The Stone+tec 2011, otherwise known as the 17th International Trade Fair Natural Stone and Processing Technology will be held on 25 June 2011. It will be held at the Nurenburg Exhibition Centre.
The exhibition primarily attracts the skilled trades, primarily stonemasons and stone-processing specialist companies along with the tile-laying and paving trades, followed by the industry and trade with almost 20 percent each. In 2009, there were 770 exhibitors and around 35,000 trade visitors, over one quarter of them from abroad.
Nine out of ten exhibitors reached their most important target groups at the fair and made new business contacts. “We are convinced that with the 2011 date we have found a good solution which takes into account the exhibitors’ and visitors’ wishes and is conducive to a successful Stone+tec Nuremberg”, said Roland Kast, exhibition director.
The 2011 date includes a public holiday on Thursday – a situation which always guarantees a high influx of visitors to Stone+tec especially from the skilled trades. Traditionally Stone+tec’s duration always takes in one of the two public holidays each falling on a Thursday, Ascension Day or Corpus Christi.
