It is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of Cersaie 2020 - the world's largest international exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings - which previously had been postponed until November. The next edition of Cersaie will be held in Bologna, Italy from September 27 to October 1, 2021, accompanied by an immersive digital experience aimed at increasing attendee and exhibitor participation.

Cersaie is well-known for its global clientele, with one-third of exhibitors hailing from 40 different countries and 50,000 international attendees in 2019. Although businesses and manufacturing facilities have been reopening gradually around the world in recent months, many exhibitors are unable to participate in Cersaie this year due to the ongoing global health and economic crises caused by COVID-19. Out of respect for exhibitors and attendees, Confindustria Ceramica and EdiCer SpA have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 edition and focus on creating a value-rich program and exciting new initiatives for Cersaie 2021. 

Ahead of the 2021 show, Cersaie will host a conference on November 9, 2020 in Bologna dedicated to the health benefits of ceramic and porcelain tile.
