Cersaie Postponed Until November
BOLOGNA, ITALY — Cersaie, the world’s largest international exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings, has become the latest industry-related trade show to be postponed or cancelled in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Confindustria Ceramica and EdiCer SpA, the organizers of the trade show, announced that they have decided to postpone the show, originally scheduled for Sept. 28 to Oct. 2 in Bologna, Italy. The new dates for Cersaie 2020 will be Nov. 9-13, and the adapted format will include lectures and programming focused on ceramic tile as a hygienic solution for the future of architecture and design, show officials said.
“The decision to postpone Cersaie comes after much deliberation and a careful analysis of the current global health situation,” organizers said. “Although Italy has entered phase 2 of its COVID-19 response, with production resuming and select businesses reopening, social-distancing laws remain in effect. Postponement is the best solution to preserve the welfare of Cersaie’s international participants and allow more time for economic recovery.”
