CERSAIE international tile show returns to Bologna this month

The world’s top companies in the surfaces and bathroom furnishings sectors are converging in Bologna this month at Cersaie, the leading trade show for ceramic tiles and bathroom furnishings. Bringing together over 900 exhibitors from some 35 countries around the world, the five-day Cersaie 2018 will take place from September 24-28.

Cersaie is the foremost international event for designers of ceramic and other surface coverings and bathroom furnishings. The show’s importance is demonstrated by the presence of more than 111,000 attendees, approximately half of whom are international visitors from all over the world.

The wide range of products that are exposed at Cersaie 2018 will cover all the new design trends of surfaces and bathroom furnishings. Alongside the industry-leading ceramic floor and wall tiles that anchor the show, Cersaie will feature a wide variety of non-ceramic coverings, as well as sanitary installations, fireplaces, ceramic stoves, raw materials and tools, and showroom furnishings.

This year, the special Sound of Design exhibition will also explore the relationship between music and design. The Sound of Design, Cersaie’s fifth collective B2B exhibition is a transversal, multiproducts and with an added high value event entirely dedicated to the Italian Style excellence.

The Sound of Design exhibit will be divided into sets, each one differently fitted: the exhibit doesn’t intend to be nostalgic but it is a pretext to show the ductility and the timeless of the design of new products exhibited in the sets.

In addition, Pritzker Prize winning architect Richard Rodgers will deliver this year’s keynote address on September 25. A full programme of events and exhibits for the five-day show is also available here.
