StonExpo México Premiers at Obra Blanca Expo 2019

Posted on 22 July 2019 by cradmin

Obra Blanca Expo (OB Expo), a new tradeshow of the Tile Council of North America (TCNA), has joined with Informa, the world’s largest exhibition organization, to bring StonExpo to México. OB Expo with StonExpo México will take place October 15–17, 2019, at Expo Santa Fe, México City.

Started in 1987, StonExpo is an international exhibition of marble, granite, and other natural stones, along with the latest trends in stone design and fabrication machinery. StonExpo has been featured at The International Surface Event in Las Vegas since 2004 and this December will also be held in China at The International Surface Event in Shanghai. OB Expo 2019 will be the first time StonExpo is being presented in México.

OB Expo specializes in interior and exterior finishes and materials used in the final stage of a new construction or remodel project, along with those unique items that allow an architect or designer to crown a project with final touches.

OB Expo has been designed to provide a superior experience for the visitor. The exhibition is organized by thematic pavilions where three days of events will provide an international platform for architects, interior designers, contractors, distributors, investors, and real estate developers to come together to strengthen relationships, discover the latest trends and product innovations, and above all, to be inspired.

A Video Look At StonExpo & TISE West 2016

A Video Look At StonExpo & TISE West 2016

Posted on 09 March 2016 by cradmin

This video, published by The Construction-Ed Show, is another take on the recent Design & Construction week, but it focuses on The International Surface Event (TISE) rather than the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, as the previous video we posted did.

It is basically an overview of the event, and while it does focus on the flooring and carpeting as well as the stone/countertop products and accessories, it does fairly well at capturing the feel of the show and there are some things you may very well be interested in, such as the BACA robotic saw/waterjet system shown in the video. You may even recognize a few interviewees (like Patrick Foley of Moraware’s StoneTalk podcast, among others).

If you didn’t make the show, it is certainly worth a look.
