The time for Cersaie

September immediately brings one word to those working in the ceramic tile industry: Cersaie, the event that turns Bologna (Italy) into the World´s capital for the sectors of architecture and bathroom. We are finihing the last details for attending this trade fair that will take place from September 26th to 30th, gathering more than one thousand exhibitors that will fill up the 176,000 m2 space with new ideas and trends.

In Cersaie 2016 the greatest innovations in the ceramic world will be found, including porcelain tiles, sanitary ware, bathroom furniture, raw materials, equipment for ceramics … A great chance to know where the industry goes to and what developments and challenges are in the way as we look ahead. We will  attend this trade fair with renewed hopes and challenges.

A meeting point in which also we can enjoy a series of events focused on four main areas, which will allow a deeper understanding of the implications of ceramics in interior design and decoration, specially at the bathroom:

  1. Building, Dwelling, Thinking
