Learning Opportunities

Materials & Trends

Achieving Green Building Goals with Natural Stone

11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EST

Natural stone is nearly perfect as a building material in its natural state and has proven its durability over the centuries. Combine these attributes with the knowledge that the industry is committed to lowering environmental impacts, being socially responsible, and aligning with green building programs. Most design teams already agree that natural stone is inherently a great solution for projects with green building goals. This session will elaborate on why and show you where to find the documentation needed to check more sustainability boxes than you might have realized were possible with natural stone.

Installation & Fabrication

Tile Installations and Critical Lighting

12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. EST

Critical lighting, including natural lighting or the location of light fixtures, can make or break a tile installation. This webinar will review factors such as substrate prep, layout, and lighting placement that affect installations lit by natural or artificial light. After discussing the basics of critical lighting, we will review how to plan for critical lighting to minimize potential negative effects and create a beautiful installation. Educate yourself to educate your clients on what is attainable versus their expectations.  


Workforce & Profits

Supply Chain Disruption: Making the Inflexible, Flexible

2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EST

Today’s manufacturers, wholesalers, and distributors are facing increased pressure to deliver both top-line growth and bottom-line profitability. The last two years created the perfect storm of policy changes, Covid-19 challenges, labor availability (or lack thereof), a surge in demand, product availability (or again – the lack thereof), and the overall disruption to the supply chain.
