The Monument Builders of North America's 2020 MBUniversity Conference was February 6-9, and featured multiple educational workshops, a table-top display with vendors, and many networking opportunities.
This year's show, held in Athens, GA, was a hit with more than 350 registrants. This year was one for the record books. Retailer attendance was up over 20% from 2018 and over 80% from 2016. Traffic on the show floor was non-stop, and it was good to see so many familiar faces. We also made a lot of new friends.
We appreciate everyone who explored the home of the Elberton Granite Association while in Athens. EGA invited everyone on a tour of the Elberton area on Friday, February 7. EGA Day included plant tours and demonstrations, a setting demonstration, cleaning and restoration techniques, technology and more. We demonstrated our Online Catalog & Monument Designer in Elberton and Athens, and answered some great questions.
Thanks to all those who visited with us, and we look forward to seeing you at the full industry show in Cleveland, Ohio, March 5-7, 2021!
