85% of space available at Cevisama 2020 already booked


Spanish fair set to be bigger again next year with enhanced promotion plan aiming to attract more professionals to Feria Valencia from 3rd to 7th February.

At the end of June, with more than seven months to go before the fair opens its doors, Cevisama 2020 was already 85% full. Feria Valencia’s International Ceramic Tile, Bathroom Furnishings and Natural Stone trade fair is slated to run from 3rd to 7th February and the product ranges on show will again be making a quantitative as well as a qualitative leap forward.

The event will bring together the latest collections and developments in design and technology from the leading producers of ceramic tiles, frits, glazes and colours for ceramic manufacturing, ancillary industries, natural stone and tile manufacturing machinery.

Currently, the biggest section of the show, ceramic tiles, is nudging 91% full. The majority of bookings have come from leading Spanish manufacturers, although Cevisama continues be increasingly attractive to foreign – especially Italian – companies.

The Spanish sector manufacturing frits, glazes and colours for ceramic tiles currently stands at 85% of the expected level of bookings.

Bathroom furnishings manufacturers, which tend to be a little slower on the uptake, have booked more than 66% of the space available to them, a percentage which is in line with the pattern of recent years.

Cevisama has once again forecast growth and all the indications are that the objectives for 2020 will be achieved. Last year the exhibition was visited by more than 91,000 professionals, of which more than 20,000 from outside Spain.

Cevisama 2020 will occupy 11 halls at Feria Valencia.

This time round, hall 7 will be dedicated to machinery for ceramic tile production, a sector that features at Cevisama only every other year.

Hall 6 will once again be the “Design Hall”, and is set to be a major draw for visitors, architects and interior designers from all over the world. The hall was a huge success last year when it was first introduced and its return marks Cevisama’s commitment to promoting the contract channel and reflecting the ongoing developments in ceramic materials and their many applications in this area.

Cevisama is also putting together a programme of high-level lectures that will be part of the Architecture and Design Forum.
