The 2023 Natural Stone Show will play host to the first Emerging Talent Award, a new initiative from the show’s organisers that seeks to acknowledge the top ten individuals who have made a positive contribution to the industry.

The Awards are about recognising and rewarding the achievements of those at the beginning of their career in the sector – as well as shining the spotlight on the organisations that are helping develop and foster the future of the industry.

Whether in training or apprenticeship, sustainability or innovation, design or manufacturing, each nominated Emerging Talent will have demonstrated the ambition and success required to progress their career.

The chosen winners will be presented with their award, along with a voucher to the value of £250, at the 2023 Natural Stone Show, June 6-8 at ExCeL, London. In addition, each winner will be featured in the Natural Stone Specialist magazine and on
