For those at the 2013 edition of Surfaces | StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas — held from January 29 to 31 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV — the electricity on the show floor was evident. Hanley Wood, owner of the exhibition, reported a renewed sense of energy and excitement that was apparent in many ways, including the seemingly endless line of attendees waiting to enter the exhibition hall on the opening day of the show. Statistics show attendance shot up 4.3% compared to last year.
“We are very optimistic about the state of the industries we serve after Surfaces | StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas 2013,” said Dana Teague, Group Director of the exhibition. “There was a new and energetic buzz on the show floor that consumed both attendees and exhibitors throughout the duration of the show. We are confident that everyone who was in attendance will find rejuvenated success in 2013.”
