• For the first time, Saudi Arabia’s premier event for the stone and surface design industry will run in the Kingdom’s capital

The Kingdom’s premier event dedicated to the natural stone and surface design industry will move to Riyadh for its 2020 edition, announce organisers dmg events. The move comes in response to the industry’s desire to have a dedicated event in the commercial capital of Saudi Arabia.

Now in its 4th edition, Stone & Surface Saudi will take place from 11-13 February 2020 at the Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Centre (RICEC). The event will connect suppliers of surface design materials and machinery with key buyers and decision-makers in Saudi Arabia’s multi-million mega-development projects.

Event Director – dmg events, Roni El Haddad, said: “After lengthy discussions with the industry regarding the need for a niche stone and surface design industry event in Riyadh, we are delighted to announce the move. The Kingdom’s capital is the perfect meeting place for finding new products, exchanging information, fostering business relationships and exploring new opportunities.”
