For 4 days, a lot of negotiations were held. In particular, our company was interested in the possibility of cooperation with suppliers of marble mosaic, offering goods of excellent quality and design at prices comparable with Chinese products, represented in large construction trade networks.
Ukrainian producers presented their products for maintenance of machine tools, which will save on the delivery of imported analogues, thereby making the production of our supplies cheaper.
Italian machine tool manufacturers are ready to present projects for the delivery of new upgraded equipment for the PetroMramor stone processing plants.
Representatives of our southern republics presented samples of products from the dolomites and marble limestones they extracted. We are convinced that this stone will please our customers.
This year the exhibition gathered representatives from 18 countries. Among them in the first place in terms of number were participants from Russia (about 80), on the second - from China (more than 60), and on the third - from Italy. In December 2017, an international Technical Workshop on stone processing was held in St. Petersburg: "Petromramor" at the technical seminar on stone processing.
A variety of topics were covered in the presentation area. There was held a scientific and practical conference dedicated to restoration work with natural stone in connection with the large-scale works carried out by the state on the restoration and preservation of monuments of Russia's cultural heritage. It touched upon such topics as "Problems of restoration of granite objects in 1935-1960 in Moscow", "Inspection of the state of facing of natural stone buildings in Moscow and analysis of the possibility of their restoration", "Minimization of financial risks when using natural stone by construction companies", "Innovative technologies for manufacturing protective coatings and restoration of architectural and construction products from natural stone "and many others. Traditionally, there were presentations of new products of the market. Among the numerous seminars were interesting such as "Stone and its combination with other materials", "Installation of natural and artificial stone in the interior: what mistakes the designers allow and how they can be corrected by the builders", "New types of textured processing for highlighting the texture of natural stone".
All these days we treated our guests with masterpieces of vegetarian cooking from the talented chef from St. Petersburg, Ilya Oblakov. No one remained indifferent to his longevity, even lined up for his master classes Vedastation, which he spends on weekends in the city on the Neva. Recall that the exhibition this year was not held in June, as it used to be before, but because of the world football championship was moved to April, and fell on the Passion Week. Thanks to the talent of the chef, all the visitors of our stand, without exception, fasting and not growing, were able to strengthen their strengths and improve the mood by eating its dishes, and also on a full stomach to offer our company more favorable terms of cooperation. Once again I thank Ilya and his assistant Julia for the delicious days spent!
