CERSAIE 2020 Cancelled
Despite their best efforts in recent weeks, the organisers of CERSAIE announced the cancellation of the 2020 show and the date of next year’s event, which will be held in Bologna from 27 September – 1 October 2021.
With one 3rd of CERSAIE’s exhibitors coming from 40 foreign countries and over 50 000 international visitors (47 % of the total), the organisers accepted the requests and concerns of numerous international exhibitors and buyers, who were seriously worried that holding an event this year would simply be too early to justify the necessary levels of investment and planning, despite the progressive reopening of activities in many countries. CERSAIE continues to look to the future, and already has a packed programme of events that will accompany its community during the 15 months between now and the next edition in 2021. Among the various physical initiatives, the Press Cafés will be presented on Monday 28 September in Sassuolo, then on 9 November the Palazzo dei Congressi in Bologna will host a conference dedicated to the healthiness of ceramics in the design of residential and architectural spaces. These events will be accompanied by online activities focusing on topical issues for the world of ceramics and bathroom furnishings.
