This year marks the 30th edition of Cersaie -- the annual international ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings exhibition in Bologna, Italy -- that will take place from September25 to 29, 2012. The show will feature nearly 1,000 exhibitors from 31 countries and a sprawling 176,000 square meters of exhibition space. At Cersaie, companies will introduce cutting-edge designs and new technological innovations to the tile world.

Some of the trends expected to be seen at this year's show include monolithic porcelain slabs and self-laying floors, bold geometric patterns, textured tiles inspired by terra-cotta, wood, concrete and stone, and three-dimensional ceramic wall tiles in a monochromatic color palette. Here's a sneak peak of some of the show features. SEE SLIDESHOW

2013 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition winners

This year, the Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition, an annual awards program sponsored by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Commission, attracted the most competitive pool of projects in the contest's history. The winning projects speak to the A&D community's commitment to using a material that is technically advanced, aesthetically pleasing and manufactured with a focus on sustainability. Nine projects in three categories were recognized: residential, institutional and commercial. The grand-prize winners include a century-old, three-floor adaptive re-use project (Schaefer-Graf Residence), a 675,000-square-foot entertainment arena (Barclays Center) and a LEED-certified government building (NIST) in addition to six projects who received honorable mentions from the jury.
