Cersaie, the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings, is constantly growing. Each year, the tradeshow draws in significantly more visitors, both international and national, which solidifies the event’s importance to the architecture and design community. For its 34th edition this year, Cersaie was hosted at the Bologna Exhibition Center, where it welcomed more than 106,000 people from September 26 to 30, 2016.
Although last year’s event reported the largest contingent of visitors since the show’s inception, this year stole the spotlight with a 5% increase — almost 5,000 more visitors than last year. The recovery in the number of Italian visitors after several years of stagnation was also apparent with a 4% increase, as well as the continued rise of international visitors, which experienced a 6% increase.
