SAIE 2011 – The future of ceramics on display in Bologna

Digital decoration, large sizes, ventilated facades, mosaic and swimming pools are just a few of the new frontiers that are being explored by the ceramic tile industry. The latest developments in these fields will be on show at the Ceramics of Italy stand at SAIE, the building exhibition to be held in Bologna from 5 to 8 October. The stand will also be hosting four seminars on new legislation, certification, materials and the role of ceramics in building renovation.

The stand, located in hall 22, will showcase a large number of key products displayed by Italian companies. It is organised as part of the promotional activities of Federazione Confindustria Ceramica e Laterizi, the federation that brings together Ceramics of Italy (the institutional and collective mark that represents and promotes Italian ceramic companies worldwide) and Andil (the Italian national brick and roof tile manufacturers’ association).

Alongside this display of highly innovative products, the stand will also be hosting seminars given by companies or research laboratories to explore the key challenges facing the sector in terms of competitiveness and results in international markets. The “Plaza of heavy clay and ceramic for innovation and sustainability” will be featuring four events devoted specifically to the ceramic sector.

The events will begin on Wednesday 5 October with “Ceramic tiles: sustainability, standards and certification” organised by the Centro Ceramico, then continue the following day with “Thermatile, the innovative carbon fibre radiant heating system that lives in symbiosis with porcelain tile”, organised by Ceramica del Conca, and “Installation of ceramic tiles: the new UNI standard”, proposed by the Centro Ceramico and the University of Bologna. Lastly, “The role of ceramic tiles in building renovation: needs and innovative proposals from designers and manufacturers”, again organised by the Centro Ceramico, will be held on Friday 7 October.

For the last forty years Ceramics of Italy has been promoting the image and products of the Italian ceramic industry in foreign markets, safeguarding the interests and promoting an awareness of Confindustria Ceramica member companies. For this purpose, it has been involved in a range of initiatives including trade show participation, promotional and advertising campaigns and commercial and cultural initiatives to support the activities conducted by individual companies in international markets.
