The 26th edition of Cevisama is set to take place February 5th-9th, 2008 in Valencia, Spain. This year, the fair is being re-energized with new initiatives designed to satisfy the many different demands of exhibitors and fairgoers alike. More than 1,200 exhibitors from around the world will be showing their latest products.
Cevisama has maintained a reputation as the most extensive, creative and best possible exhibition of ceramic tiles for use in architecture and interior design. In 2008, the show is being complemented by the Cevisama Indi program of displays, competitions, awards and lectures that will reflect trends and the most cutting edge products and ideas in the industry.
Cevisama Indi will be presenting the 2.1 version of the Trans/hitos display. It is subtitled “Nómadas” (“Nomads”), a new phrase for the display based on cooperative projects and the sharing of knowledge and experiences.
Indi will also be featuring international design competitions for ceramic tiles for use in architecture and bathroom furnishings, the Architecture and Design Forum and the Alfa de Oro Awards, given in recognition of companies’ achievements in innovation. The new exhibit, Bluespace, centered on the new bathroom culture, rounds out the show.
The upcoming Cevisama also features “Cerámica innova” (“Ceramic tile innovates”). The initiative coincides with the Machinery Show and will focus specifically on the latest technological advancements in ceramic tile machinery and production processes for the product itself and its applications. The event will also focus heavily on corporate sustainability, covering environmental and energy issues.
Cevisama once again is the “forward thinking” show, celebrating innovation, design, technology, and diversity in ceramic tile.
