Cersaie, the annual international ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings exhibition in Bologna, will once again introduce the latest design trends and innovative products and solutions.

Promoted by Confindustria Ceramica in cooperation with BolognaFiere and organized by Edi.Cer. SpA and Promos, the show features over 1,000 exhibitors from 34 different countries and 176,000 square meters of exhibition space. 

Highlights of his year's show include a brand new sustainability initiative, a star-studded panel of guest speakers and a student run design competition to choose next year's official Cersaie poster.

Emulating the industry's commitment to sustainability, Cersaie will begin the "Cersaie for Sustainability" project to reduce its carbon footprint through waste reduction, energy optimization, water and paper consumption, and sustainable transportation.

Complementing the show's green initiatives, Cersaie will welcome a series of lecturers during the conference program, "Building, Dwelling, Thinking." Acclaimed architects and designers will discuss architectural solutions and design-forward philosophies.
