De­sign, ar­chi­tec­tural, and con­struc­tion in­dus­tries are closely in­ter­linked with one com­mon fac­tor and that is the usage of dif­fer­ent kinds of stones. From the very out­set, STONE In­dus­try Fair has been ad­dressed to ev­ery­one, for whom stone con­sti­tutes the ba­sis or part of eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity – stone­ma­sons and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the con­struc­tion in­dus­try, ar­chi­tects, and de­sign­ers. The fair took place at Poz­nan Con­gress Cen­tre in Poland from Novem­ber 14-17, 2018 and em­pha­sised greatly on co­her­ent co­op­er­a­tion of the stone and ar­chi­tec­tural in­dus­try. The fair events took place in four ex­hi­bi­tion halls and were par­tic­i­pated by over 220 ex­hibitors, and the num­ber of pro­fes­sion­als who vis­ited the ex­po­si­tion ex­ceeded five thou­sand.

The ex­hibitors pre­sented in­spir­ing ex­po­si­tions from nat­u­ral stone, spe­cialised equip­ment for cut­ting and stone pro­cess­ing, as well as prod­ucts for clean­ing and main­te­nance of stone sur­faces. Con­cur­rently with the STONE In­dus­try Fair was held the GLASS In­dus­try Fair, with fo­cus on glass el­e­ments, which per­fectly match stone de­signs.

Tra­di­tion­ally, the two fair events were the place of pre­sen­ta­tion of many tech­no­log­i­cal nov­el­ties: state-of-the-art ma­chin­ery and equip­ment for pro­cess­ing of nat­u­ral stone.

There were events de­vel­oped es­pe­cially for the pro­fes­sion­als from the stone and ar­chi­tec­tural in­dus­try, which aimed at al­low­ing their rep­re­sen­ta­tives to es­tab­lish closer busi­ness re­la­tions. One of such key events was Arena STONE.

Arena STONE is a plat­form ded­i­cated to pro­fes­sion­als from the stone in­dus­try, ar­chi­tects, de­sign­ers and own­ers of de­sign of­fices. On the oc­ca­sion of 2018 edi­tion of the STONE In­dus­try Fair, the plat­form was held for the first time, ul­ti­mately how­ever it is to be­come an in­te­gral part of the fair, con­tentre­lated, in­spir­ing and al­low­ing for pre­sen­ta­tion of in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions us­ing stone and glass. Its pro­gram in­cluded lec­tures of the in­dus­try ex­perts and pre­sen­ta­tions of the well-known and recog­nised around the world de­sign­ers who use nat­u­ral stone in their works. Among the lec­tur­ers, it is worth men­tion­ing fa­mous Ital­ian de­signer, Raf­faello Galiotto, who held a pre­sen­ta­tion en­ti­tled “MARMO 4.0. Ex­per­i­ments

in nat­u­ral stone”, world-renowned mo­saic cre­ator, Gi­ulio Menossi, chief ed­i­tor of a Ger­man in­dus­try web­site www.stone-ideas. com, Peter Becker and, Pol­ish artist cre­at­ing mo­saics, Lu­bosz Kar­wat.

All of the pre­sen­ta­tions at­tracted great in­ter­est of the vis­i­tors, which proves that the events ad­dressed to the stone and ar­chi­tec­tural in­dus­try are in­cred­i­bly nec­es­sary on the mar­ket and in­ter­est­ing for the pro­fes­sion­als from both fields.
