Vitória Stone Fair 2017 overcomes circumstances (from Stone World)

As the result of violence caused by a strike of the military police in February, the Vitoría Stone Fair/Marmo+Mac Latin America cancelled its original date, but has regrouped and set June 6 to 9 as its new dates.

Brazil has long been known for its extensive granite varieties, unique quartzite and other exotic stone. And over the years, the Vitoría Stone Fair in Vitoría, Espírito Santo, has grown to become a well-known exhibition with a large international presence. In recent years, the fair’s organizer, Milanez & Milaneze, partnered with the Italian show management, the Veronafiere Group, and the exhibition was renamed the Vitoría Stone Fair/Marmo+Mac Latin America. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond its control, the 43rd edition of the stone exhibition, which was originally scheduled for February 14 to 17, 2017, had to be postponed. Show management is pleased to report, however, a new date for the Vitoría Stone Fair/Marmo+Mac Latin America has been set for June 6 to 9, 2017, at the Carapina Events Center, Serra.

The four-day event was canceled in February due to a strike in the military police, which resulted in public security issues in the state of Espírito Santo. “This decision was made considering the multiple requests sent by the exhibitors and visitors of Vitoría Stone Fair to the organizers of the event, with the purpose of preserving the safety and integrity of our customers, exhibitors and visitors, and of all service providers committed to the event,” according to a statement on the fair’s website at the time. “We reaffirm the importance of this international event for the ornamental stone sector, and we reiterate our position to preserve the safety of those involved and hope to have everyone’s understanding.” View this article at STONE WORLD.
