“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.” Oscar Wilde noticed this more than 100 years ago and I’m sure the majority of you feel the same way. Fall has officially begun. For many, it’s unfortunate that summer has finally come to an end, but for many others, it’s one of the best times of the year. A time when leaves change crazy colors, Pumpkin Spice-flavored treats are in abundance, and children and adults alike get to pretend like they’re superheroes and coveted idols for an entire day. I can understand why some people were waiting for the summer to fly by.
However, as the weather cools down, we here at TILEare just getting started. As I mentioned last month, traveling season is upon us. As I sit here writing this, I’m preparing to attend one of the largest international ceramic tile tradeshows, Cersaie, which takes place at the Bologna Exhibition Center in Bologna, Italy, each year. Two new halls were added to accommodate the growing list of exhibitors in 2018, with more than 800 companies expected from dozens of countries all over the world. To read a full report on this year’s exhibition, make sure to check back in November for the last edition of the year, known as our “Gold Book.”
