After the cancellation of the 2020 edition due to the coronavirus pandemic, EDI.CER are planning for the return of CERSAIE planned for late September. The new dates are scheduled for September 27th – October 1st. Organisers are optimistic the upcoming live edition will be the biggest one yet as most of the exhibition space has been booked in advance. The ceramics industry has been eager to return to physical events and CERSAIE 2021 will prove once again why meeting face to face is the best way to conduct business. Bologna Fiere will work towards a safer concept and will follow all the latest government guidelines on how to ensure the safety of all in attendance. Expect only the best in COVID-19 protective measures.
CERSAIE is the beating heart for the ceramic tiles and bathroom furnishing industry in Italy and it manages to pull exhibitors and buyers not just from Europe, but from all over the world. That’s why this international trade show commands respect and serves as the best source for new design trends and customer preferences. The very first edition was held in 1983 and since then it’s only been growing in size and importance, which makes it a fertile ground to generate sales leads and break into new markets. The exhibition halls carry the entire value chain – sanitary ware, bathroom decor, bathroom furniture and mirrors, bathtubs, ceramic stoves, ceramic tiles, fireplaces, showers, sinks, installation materials and tools, sanitary fittings, saunas, wall radiators and whirlpools. With many people staying indoors due to the pandemic, interest in home remodeling has skyrocketed. This means you’re able to make excellent sales numbers.
CERSAIE is an annual staple in the event calendar in Bologna, Italy. The international trade show is a natural meeting point for the ceramics industry, which runs every September at Bologna Fiere. EDI.CER is the organiser and mastermind behind the trade show and doors are open to both trade visitors and the general public. Editions last a total of five days. The first two days are professionals only and the remaining three are open to the general public. The working hours are the same for all the days – 09:00 am in the morning until 17:00 pm in the afternoon. Commuting to Bologna Fiere shouldn’t be a challenge as the exhibition centre neighbors Bologna Central Station. Your best choice is to catch either bus #35 or bus #38 to get there. An added bonus is that the central station also has good connections to the airport.
What You Can Expect as an Exhibitor
•Business is the main goal at CERSAIE. You can easily connect with partners and close big deals on a B2B level. At the same time, part of the event is open to end customers, so you can prepare for direct sales and customer feedback. You’ll see what sells and what doesn’t;
•Architects have a special place at the event. There is a specific zone in CERSAIE, where all the prestigious international architecture firms gather. That zone is Archincont(r)act;
•One of the most sought-after honor at CERSAIE is being recognized for innovation and creative design through the Honourable Mention of the Compasso d'Oro Award. It’s stiff competition, but so worth it.
