Tecnargilla 2008, which ran concurrently with the recently concluded Cersaie 2008 exhibition in Bologna, reports an increase in total attendance of 31,432 visitors (up 1.9% from the 2006 show) and foreign attendance increase of 11.2% - the most positive aspect of the biennial show, according to Lorenzo Cagnoni, chairman Rimini Fiera (organizers of Tecnargilla).

“I had been expecting good results from this edition of the show because during the downturn in the ceramic industry, our exhibitors have seen our exhibition as a venue for launching cutting-edge solutions for producers all over the world,” Cagnoni noted.
