Jacques Benharrous, the General Secretary of the National Union of Ornamental and Construction Rock Industries, discusses the reasons why SNROC became a partner of the first edition of the Rocalia 2017 exhibition.
Why are you a partner and why do you support Rocalia?
"Rocalia is likely to become one of the structuring elements of the sector and its best showcase. It is therefore essential that the SNROC supports this initiative, which matches with all of its trade union action, especially since it is ruled by real stone professionals. "
Why should professionals exhibit on the show?
"There are four main reasons:
- Give greater visibility to materials, products and know-how.
- Expand and diversify its markets.
- Give credibility to the sector in relation to other construction products.
- Give envy to the prescribers. "
In your opinion, why is it so important to have a natural stone show?
"France is a big country of natural stones so we must have a show dedicated to this activity. Rocalia must be considered as a showcase of our activities and products in France and abroad. It is also an element of transparency in the organization of our sector, which is often considered to be complex. "
