Marmomacc, the fair for the industry of marble, granite, technologies, design and education, is back at the Verona Fair from 28 September to 1 October 2016, with new developments and bigger numbers than ever before.

Starting with the size of the exhibition space, over 78,000 square meters, thanks to an additional 2000 in Pavilion 10: an investment of Veronafiere that has made it possible to satisfy the long waiting list of exhibitors.

In 2016 the collaboration with ICE-Italian Trade Agency and Confindustria Marmomacchine continues with initiatives linked to the Extraordinary Promotional Plan of Made in Italy, organized by the Ministry of Economic Development.

Pavilion 1 at Marmomacc, for the second year in a row, becomes The Italian Stone Theatre, presenting three exhibitions by famous designers on the interaction between stone and technology. The Spazio Forum hosts lectures and conferences.

The second edition of the International Stone Summit is a conference on natural stone, with the participation of the main international marble associations.

This year Marmomacc also features the Archmarathon, an architecture exhibition involving 42 studios, with the creation of the new Stone Award. Another new development is the Icon Award, selecting a work from Pavilion 1 that will become the image of the ad campaign of Marmomacc 2017.

For the fifth consecutive year, Marmomacc & the City brings works and installations in stone into the streets and courtyards of the historical center of Verona.

Finally, the 10th Best Communicator Award rewards the originality of exhibitors’ stands.
