Special Session on Radon and Granite to be Held at Upcoming StonExpo

StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas, together with the Marble Institute of America (MIA), will present a session at the annual stone show next month addressing the ongoing debate surrounding radon and granite.

“StonExpo is the perfect place to present this message because it’s where the stone industry arrives en masse, and it is where we can both educate the industry and ask for support in one place,” said Gary Distelhorst, the executive vice president of the MIA.

The session will take place on the all-new StonExchange area on the show floor, and while registration is required, it is complimentary for all attendees and exhibitors. Titled “Granite and Radon — An Industry Update,” and led by members of the MIA, the session is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 16, from 4:15 to 4:45 p.m. Participants will discuss the advances the stone industry is making with new scientific studies, the Truth About Granite (TAG) fund and the MIA’s global involvement.

“As a hot topic within the industry, we felt obligated to evaluate our program content and make this change to better serve the needs of our attendees and exhibitors,” commented Dana Teague, StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas show director.

I am concerned that the facts are not yet sufficiently known about this issue to be able to present an unbiased update to those who attend this expo.
