Revestir, the Brazilian exhibition for ceramic tile, stone and kitchen and bath furnishings, was held from March 6 to 9, 2012 at the Transamerica Expo Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil. And in recent years, the show has experienced record growth -- drawing 40,000 attendees from 60 countries and 230 exhibitors. According to show management, this year’s event saw a 30% increase in the number of exhibitors from 2011.

To capitalize on the healthy construction industry in Brazil, Revestir included a special day for builders and another one for architects. Builders were present in large numbers on the third day of the exhibition and on the fourth day, architects were on the show floor and in conferences and seminars dedicated to their group. The success and growth of Revestir -- combined with the strong domestic economy of Brazil -- makes this an important event for the international tile and stone industries. Below are a few of the many innovative tile products that were displayed at Revestir 2012.
