A group of 84 companies of Spanish manufacturers of ceramic floor and wall tiles will participate again in the CERSAIE 2021 Trade Show (Bologna, Italy) after the mandated halt due to the Corona pandemic and the cancellation of the show in 2020. The high number of companies participating is a testament to the industry’s commitment to export markets and a reflection of the global nature of the Italian fair and its visitors. In spite of continued uncertainty and the travel restrictions still in force for some countries of origin, turnout is very strong.
The organisation has confirmed the participation of companies from 26 countries with manufacturers from Spain forming the largest group after the Italians. During the week of the show, and the week following, a digital version of the fair will also be available.
The Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers’ Association (ASCER) has created a dedicated web page tileofspain-cersaie.com as an on-line catalogue with information on each of the exhibiting companies. As well as contact information and images, the website showcases new products presented by each exhibitor and has a simple company search both by hall and alphabetically. This microsite has been designed to offer simple and fast information of the Spanish exhibitors at the fair from mobile devices.
Other activities include an advertising campaign on social networks among potential visitors to the show prior to its celebration, during the event, and the week after it. The campaign in social networks will be accompanied by an intense monitoring of the fair from the Instagram profile @tileofspain and through the hashtags #TileOfSpainAtCersaie and #TileofSpainisback.
