Attendance at Cersaie 2017 exceeds 111,000. Increase in both international visitors (53,182) and Italians (58,422)
Cersaie 2017 was attended by 111,604 visitors, 4.7% more than in 2016, with increases in both international and Italian visitors. Held in Bologna from 25 to 29 September and organised in cooperation with BolognaFiere, the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings confirmed its status as the leading commercial event for the global market, complemented by a wide range of initiatives aimed at architects, interior designers, installers, the media and end consumers.
The show’s outstanding appeal combined with the positive economic situation in the various markets led to growth in numbers 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. As always, the Italian and international press was very strongly represented with a total of 922 journalists present, including 506 Italians and 416 non-Italians.
Representativeness and international scope were as ever the key characteristics of Cersaie, which alongside the traditional sectors of ceramic tiles and bathroom furnishings once again hosted a large number of exhibitors of wood, marble and natural stone surface coverings and key components of the ceramic supply chain. With a total exhibition space of 156,000 square metres, Cersaie saw growth 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.
