Marmomac, Confindustria Marmomacchine and Ice-Italian Trade Agency together again to promote Internationalization of the natural stone industry through he Special 'Made In Italy' Promotion Plan
Marmomac, the landmark international event for the natural stone industry, comes forward again this year following immense success in 2015 with the initiatives implemented thanks to the Special Made in Italy Promotion Plan launched by the Ministry of Economic Development in collaboration with ICE-Italian Trade Agency and Confindustria Marmomacchine.
The programme for the 2016 edition of Marmomac will once again develop along three main guidelines: The Italian Stone Theatre, an entire hall dedicated to culture and experimentation involving materials and machinery, incoming operations involving qualified international operators and the International Stone Summit, now at its second edition.
The Italian Stone Theatre (Hall 1) - which last year welcomed projects by 32 companies in collaboration with 14 world-renowned designers – will once again be home to three specific exhibitions highlighting natural stone, machinery and technology.
The heart of Hall 1 will welcome the Forum Area and the Ristorante d’Autore.
In keeping with tradition, the Forum Area will host conferences, Lectio Magistralis and training workshops involving architects and designers on an international scale, providing a marvellous occasion for meetings and dialogue with an audience of professionals, sector operators, students, professors, technicians and engineers, while the Ristorante d’Autore set up by the ADI Veneto Trentino Alto Adige Delegation for Marmomac will pay tribute to two of Italy's products of excellence: marble and food
The same successful formula set in motion last year - attracting 181 qualified operators for a total of more than 1000 meetings - will once again involve important incoming efforts with the arrival in Verona of selected foreign trade delegations of industry professionals taking part in dedicated technical training sessions, b2B meetings and technical visits to companies in the local area.
Lastly, the International Stone Summit returns - the world conference dedicated to natural stone scheduled during Marmomac itself, bringing together the main international natural stone associations and an equal number of trade press representatives from the countries involved with the goal of developing content and stimulate discussions and debate about natural stone
