Attendance at Cersaie 2017 exceeds 111,000
Cersaie continues its growth, closing the 2017 edition with attendance of 111,604 visitors, 4.7% more than in 2016, registering increase of both Italian visitors (+5.0% to a total of 58,422) and international attendees (+4.3% to 53,182) from almost all countries worldwide.
The 35th Edition of the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings confirmed its status as the leading commercial event for the global market hosting, on a total exhibition space of 156,000 square metres, a large selection of novelties of wood, marble and natural stone surface coverings and key components of the ceramic supply chain.
Cersaie 2017 saw growth also in all exhibiting sectors and hosted a total of 869 exhibitors (17 more than in 2016), including 323 foreign companies from 41 different countries, almost a third of the total. The best represented sector was that of ceramic tiles with 457 companies, followed by bathroom furnishings with 197 exhibitors, confirming the key importance of this segment at the show.
Cersaie is also increasingly establishing itself as a key event for the world of architecture and interior design, installers, the media and the general public. The architecture conferences were strongly attended and the Lesson in Reverse given by Fabio Novembre saw the participation of more than 1,300 students. The Milleluci exhibition in Hall 30 was a big success, as were the tile laying demonstrations and the training seminars for architects on the theme of large panels and slabs held in the Tiling Town.
