Valencia, Spain -- Cevisama, the International Fair for ceramic tiles, bathroom furnishing and natural stone, anticipates that this year’s show, running Jan. 28 - Feb. 1 at Feria Valencia, will see 100,000 attendees. The show has become the leading sales platform for Spain’s ceramic tile industry.

The show’s offering is being set out over 10 halls, one of which is being dedicated to products and materials created specifically for architectural and interior design projects. Ceramic is gaining traction in the contract sector, with its aesthetic and technical properties having made it a decorative as well as a construction material. Hand in hand with the industry, Cevisama is aiming to further boost its status as a must-attend event for property developers, designers, interior designers and architects and, of course, manufacturers and distributors.

The exhibitors on display in new hall (hall 6) include Neolith, Natucer and Laminam and Fiora, Hidrobox and Ramón Soler. The hall is being specially designed to suit its new purpose, with modern networking spaces, places to go for a coffee, snack or meal and wifi zones. Cevisama’s cultural content this year includes the Architecture and Design Forum, with top-level speakers including, among others, Pritzker Prize-winning Swiss architect Jacques Herzog, who will talk about his Tate Modern project in London, and architects Nieto Sobejano, who will give an insight into their latest major commission, the Arvo Pärt Center in Laulasmaa.
