A new international trade fair for ceramic tiles will make its debut Feb. 16-19, 2010. The biannual fliesen/tiles show, set to run concurrently with Domotex Hannover, is designed to serve the market in Germany and “neighboring economic regions,” organizers say.

“There is currently no trade fair in Germany or neighbouring countries which is devoted exclusively to ceramic tiles. fliesen/tiles gives tile manufacturers an ideal platform for presenting their high-quality product ranges and demonstrating their capabilities alongside their international competitors,” says Stephan Ph. Kühne, a member of the board of management at Deutsche Messe AG.

He added, “When we talked to industry associations and manufacturers, they confirmed the need for a separate trade fair dedicated to ceramic tiles. fliesen/tiles gives the industry an opportunity to find out quickly and easily – and at regular intervals – what is happening in the tile industry in terms of product choice, new products and developments.
