Stone Digital’s Shaping a Sustainable Future conference

‘Stone Digital – Shaping a Sustainable Future’ is a new, high-level online event for the stone industry to discuss topics such as how to meet and benefit from the requirements of Net Zero carbon emissions and the continuing evolution of the digitalisation of construction.

The event takes place online only on 22 & 23 February 2022.

The industry is undoubtedly changing at a rapid pace. Understanding and exploring those changes will help to identify the opportunities they present.

If you believe you have experiences and knowledge that could contribute to the debate, the organisers of Stone Digital would like to receive your proposal for consideration. Presentations will be of about 20 minutes and you will be required to participate in live Q&As, which will be chaired by professional presenter Susannah Streeter.

Susannah has held a number of key roles for BBC World Service, BBC World TV and BBC One Breakfast news, as well as hosting sustainability-themed conferences including the World Green Summit in Dubai.

The Stone Digital event  is being run by the organisers of the Natural Stone Show & Hard Surfaces exhibitions in conjunction with Stone Federation Great Britain.

Jane Buxey, CEO of Stone Federation, says: “Stone Federation are delighted to be supporting Stone Digital. We encourage all those in the natural stone sector to take advantage of the opportunities that Stone Digital will provide.”

Richard Bradbury, Managing Director of QMJ Group, which runs the stone exhibitions in London, says: “Decarbonisation and Digitalisation will transform the stone industry over the next decade. Join us as a speaker or panellist to share your knowledge and expertise, and contribute to the important conversation on how these challenges can be turned into opportunities for the sector.” 

Papers are invited around the themes listed here.
