For the second year, MIA+BSI will be exhibiting at the China Xiamen International Stone Fair in Xiamen, China.  

The Xiamen Stone Fair in coordination with MIA+BSI is extending a unique opportunity to anyone from the association interested in volunteering their time and serving as part of the delegation for the fair. Held March 6-9, 2017, the trip will include:

  • Three nights of complimentary lodging
  • Day trip study tour to visit four factories in the Shuitou Fujian stone region
  • Bus transportation to and from the show  
  • Invitations to several VIP receptions

Looking back at the 2016 Xiamen Stone Fair, 2016 MIA President David Castellucci commented: “The networking and personal relationships that our team forged during the show was the most important thing I took away from Xiamen. We must build on what was accomplished during our first trip to the Xiamen Stone Fair.” CEO Jim Hieb agreed: “MIA+BSI’s first trip to the Xiamen Stone Fair illustrated our standing in the world as a key educator and technical standards leader. Member engagement and networking were at the core of our trip—the show was much more than just a venue to visit with our international members.”
