The Cersaie Fair in Bologna was back in better shape than ever with the International Exhibition of Ceramics for Architecture and Bathroom Furnishings. This 5-day event running from 26th to 30th September attracted industry professionals, journalists and private consumers looking to catch up on the latest market trends, industry news, and the innovations and new directions that guide the world of interior and architectural design.
The history of the Cersaie Fair, held in Bologna – the capital city of the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy – spans nearly 40 years and Minoli has attended every year other than in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As the world’s largest tradeshow for ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings, it regularly attracts over 100,000 visitors and organisations representing more than 40 countries.
Traditionally, Minoli attends each Cersaie to meet with production partners and choose the new collections that will be first previewed to our clients and then launched the following year. Postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 and at a vastly reduced scale in 2021, the Minoli team enjoyed getting back to the fully fledged exhibition, engaging with contacts and seeing the exciting new products for 2023.
Managing Director, Jonathon Minoli and Daniel Abitabile, our Corporate Client Account Manager, attended over two days and were very impressed by the new products showcased by the leading manufacturers.
Jonathon commented, “We’ve been delighted to see first-hand the truly inspirational ranges that our leading production partners are bringing to market. The quality of design and manufacturing is unprecedented and the innovation we’re seeing in size and format is sure to appeal to our discerning client base.
“The high demand for quality porcelain floor and wall tiles as today’s surface of choice is reflected in the impressive investment and attendance that we’ve seen at the show. Whilst the digital / remote versions of the event run through the pandemic were very well executed by the organisers, there’s no substitute for seeing and touching the products close-up and meeting the representatives from our production partners face-to-face.
“We’re very much looking forward to launching the new series that we’ve selected to our professional, corporate, reseller and residential clients in the coming months.”
