Asean Ceramics unveils the new features of the 2019 show


Due to be held from 28 to 30 August, the event will return to Bangkok with a new location and a new format.

Asean Ceramics 2019, the international exhibition of technologies and materials for the ceramic and brick industries, will be held from 28 to 30 August in the Impact Forum in Bangkok. An important meeting point for the Southeast Asian ceramic industry, the show’s new location was chosen for its larger exhibition space and proximity to the main areas of ceramic production. A number of international exhibitors will be participating, coming from Italy, UK, Germany, Vietnam, South Korea and India.

The international promotion will also be expanded in South East Asia, thanks to the partnerships with the ceramic tile manufacturers’ national associations. In addition to the Innovation Print Asia Congress, for the first time Asian Ceramics will also be hosting the International Conference on Traditional and Advanced Ceramics which looks at the latest research in the field of traditional and advanced ceramic materials. Another important event will be the 8th edition of the Asia-Oceania Ceramic Federation Conference, which will host delegates from Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, China and Australia along with guests from India, Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.

Asean Ceramics is organised biennially by Asian Exhibition Services Ltd with the support of the Ceramics Industry Club of Thailand headed by SCG and part of the regional federation CICA (Ceramic Industry Club of ASEAN).

The 2017 edition of the show set a new record for participation with 205 exhibitor companies and more than 4,800 visitors from 46 countries.

According to the forecasts, by 2025 the ceramic sector in the ASEAN region will reach a value of $69.08 billion, driven by growth of the construction industry and the increase in public spending for infrastructure development (+$93 billion in 2017).
