Tecnargilla: a focus on digital glazing


One of the most eagerly anticipated events at Tecnargilla 2014 is the 6th Annual Acimac Meeting on digital decoration and glazing technologies for ceramic tiles, to be held on Tuesday 23 September from 12.30 pm to 6.30 pm in Sala Neri.

More than a thousand Italian and international visitors have already pre-registered online, and non-Italian participants will be able to follow the conference thanks to a simultaneous interpreting service in English.

Moderated by Italian Ceramic Society chairman Prof. Paolo Zannini, and introduced by Acimac chairman Fabio Tarozzi, the workshop will offer a comprehensive overview of the latest innovations in the sector, particularly in the pioneering field of digital glazing, and will explore possible future developments.

A total of twelve presentations will be given by Colorobbia, Durst, Esmalglass, Itaca, FM, Intesa, Kerajet, Sibelco, Projecta Engineering-SITI B&T Group, Smaltochimica, System, Tecnoferrari and Xaar.

Given the large number of people who have pre-registered with the conference, the organisers of Tecnargilla have decided to extend the show's opening hours on Tuesday 23 September to 7.30 pm. This will give participants the time they need to visit the show and will also enable exhibitors to benefit from the extra attendance.

Participation in the conference is free of charge. Given the high expected attendance, registration of participants will begin at 12.30 pm, one hour before the start of the conference. To enter the exhibition centre you must be in possession of the entrance badge. If you have not yet done so, you can register online on the home page of the website
