MIA and Stone World Announce 2013 Education Dates

February 04, 2013

Marble Institute of America and Stone World magazine have announced the dates and locations for their 2013 education series. The program will feature installer and fabricator-oriented seminars, including a networking reception to complete the program.

MIA/Stone World’s Stone Industry Education Series offers a new format, focusing on topics attendees want to learn about. Moderated by an industry veteran speaker and led by a panel of fabricators willing to share their knowledge and experiences this interactive approach has been met with enthusiasm. The “town hall” forum style allows for networking with peers and sharing of ideas, often including tips that can improve efficiency and provide growth opportunities for all fabrication shops, large and small, new and established.

“Education is the lifeblood of any strong industry and the stone industry is no different,” said Aaron Dahnke, MIA education manager. “We are honored to again be partnering with Stone World on this important endeavor. Neither one of our organizations would find the success alone that we do as a team.”

”We are delighted to again be taking our education series on the road with the MIA,” said Alex Bachrach, of Stone World. “The ‘town hall’ format that we developed in 2012 creates great value for attendees by tailoring the message and discussion of each event to the particular people in attendance. It is a dynamic program."
