The 100% ecological material, shaped by time and nature: natural stone has qualities that are being sought more than ever across many sectors, from construction to landscape development by way of ornamental design and heritage restoration. As one of the last great ornamental rock producers in Europe, France can count on a dynamic sector that is a symbol of quality and know-how.
Nonetheless, in a world in transition, natural stone stakeholders must constantly find ways of reinventing, innovating, and upgrading. The sector’s challenges, but the potential also, are huge: digitalization of processes, promotion of local stone and circular economy, expansion of target markets.
As the sole French trade show dedicated to this sector, Rocalia is the place where innovations, projects, and creations are shared to the benefit of all stakeholders and their development. It’s where knowhow, commitment, and expertise find their expression, in an ambiance where business never turns its back on congeniality.
Join the community of those working natural stone and together we’ll promote a future in which this material is reused and recycled ad infinitum!
