Set to take place February 22 in New York City, Product Placement 2.1 (co-sponsored by Ceramic Tiles of Italy and Nemo Tile Co. in New York) will focus on porcelain and ceramic slabs, emerging trends (including new formats and sustainable standouts), technologies and inspirations.

The session, moderated by design journalist Julie Taraska and PR/marketing representative Kimberly Oliver, will “deliver the behind-the-scenes scoop on the entire creative process - from prototype to production - on some of the most popular lines on the market today,” says Ceramic Tiles of Italy.

The event, which is free of charge, runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Italian wines and refreshments will be served. Reserve your space by emailing thisisproductplacement@gmail.com, or visit www.thisisproductplacement.com for more information.
