Every year, hundreds of thousands of industry professionals gather on the southern coast of China in the city of Xiamen for the world’s largest stone convention: The Xiamen Stone Fair.  This four day event plays host to thousands of exhibitors from 56 different countries around the world.  The international conference center provides over 2 million square feet of gathering space for attendees to browse a seemingly endless array of booths which display stone and surface materials, machinery, and other type vendors from around the industry.  The Stone Fair also offers attendees a full schedule of excusive seminars which are hosted by keynote speakers on a variety of relevant topics.

Universal Granite & Marble’s staff journeys out on a 14 hour flight each year to attend the show and gain first-hand knowledge about some of the newest stone products hitting the market.  UGM meets with manufacturers and other partners to form and maintain meaningful business relations while ensuring the high standard of products for its customer base in the US.  Exclusive lines like Universal Granite & Marble’s U|Quartz Collection are refined at the stone fair, with new trending colors being identified and sourced through this event.

As always- UGM goes to the extra mile for its customers (or in this case, an extra 8000 miles!).
