Bologna, Italy — Cersaie will longer be just for ceramic tile, organizers said.
Confindustria Ceramica and BolognaFiere have signed an agreement regarding the the next three editions of the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tiles and Bathroom Furnishings.
As part of the new agreement Cersaie will extend its scope from 2014 onwards to include other categories of interior and exterior floor and wall covering materials such as marble, natural stone and wood.
The agreement also confirms the Bologna exhibition center as the show’s venue and establishes the dates for the three year period 2015–2017, which as usual will be between the end of September and the first week in October. The agreement also includes a series of actions aimed at promoting synergies and thereby consolidating the international position of Cersaie and of its longstanding Bologna venue. The 100,769 visitors who attended the five days of last year’s show included 46,535 international visitors from 157 different countries, 4.2% more than at Cersaie 2012. It’s the world’s leading show in the ceramics and bathroom furnishings sectors.
The next International Exhibition of Ceramic Tiles and Bathroom Furnishings will be held Sept. 22-26.
