Italian technology to be showcased for the first time at CICEE


At the exhibition CICEE in Foshan, the excellence of Italian ceramic technology will be showcased for the very first time in an entire 10,000 square metre hall.

Italian ceramic technology, the world leader in terms of innovation and automation, will be present for the very first time at CICEE, the Chinese exhibition of technologies and materials for the ceramic industry to be held from 30 May to 2 June 2019.

The event is a major showcase for international players and will extend over a 50,000 sq.m space in the new Tanzhou International Convention and Exhibition Center in Foshan (Guangdong) at the heart of the Chinese ceramic manufacturing district.

Coordinated by Acimac, a total of 24 internationally-renowned Italian companies will occupy an entire 10,000 sq.m hall (Hall 4) and will showcase the most advanced ceramic manufacturing technologies: Air Power, Appel, BMR, Cami, Certech (Annica), Cielle, Durst, Esmalglass-Itaca, Hob Certech, ICF Welko, LB, Manfredini e Schianchi, Mectiles, Poppi, Sacmi, SITI B&T, Smac, Stylgraph, System Ceramics, Tecnoferrari, Tecnografica, Tekmak, Torrecid and Zanasi (Annica).

Visitors to the Association’s stand will also be able to pick up a special Chinese language issue of the magazine Ceramic World Review covering a range of topics including digital solutions, sustainability and large surfaces.

One event of special interest is a conference organised by LB entitled Tile Design Limitless which will be held at 3:30 pm on 30 May in the Italian Lounge. The event will focus specifically on full-body porcelain tile and will explore the many different aspects of this highly versatile architectural material, from production technologies through to technical and aesthetic characteristics. It will feature presentations by Roberto Santini, LB sales area manager for China, and Luca Fois, an internationally renowned Italian designer and lecturer at several Chinese universities.

The event is targeted at architects and designers and aims to improve their knowledge of full-body porcelain tiles and the many different uses of these products in both traditional and alternative applications (furnishing elements, outdoor use, etc.). 

Following successful participation in Indian Ceramics (India), Revestir (Brazil), Mosbuild (Russia) and Coverings (USA), the next stops on Acimac’s promotional tour are Asean Ceramics (28-30 August 2019 in Bangkok), Ceramic Expo Middle East (14-16 October, Dubai) and Expo Ceramic Bangladesh (5-8 December, Dhaka).
