Tile of Spain manufacturers returned to Spain earlier this month to bring their latest productions and innovations to CEVISAMA, the International Fair for Ceramic Tiles and Bathroom Furnishings. This year's annual show took place from February 3rd to February 7th, 2020 and was held at the Feria Valencia center in Valencia Spain. 

During the Tile of Spain Press Conference held at CEVISAMA, Vicente Nomdedeu, the president of The Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers Association (ASCER), highlighted the 2019 production, sales and exports figures that reflect the strength of Spain's industrial sector.

The Spanish tile industry surpassed the levels of success of those obtained in 2018 with overall sales increasing by 4%. With approximately 75% of all sales made abroad, Spain currently exports to 185 countries worldwide with a total export growth of 3% since 2018. 

The 38th edition of CEVISAMA saw 800 exhibitors showcase their new collections to over 90,000 industry professionals from all over the world. With no shortage of new styles to inspire interior and exterior design, the following highlights the most prominent trends and innovations on display by Tile of Spain USA's featured companies at CEVISAMA 2020.

From Azteca’s R&D department, this year, they are committed to the development of collections with a great number of ceramic effects, thus contributing more value to the pieces, with very well-studied designs adapted to their markets and to interior design and architectural trends. The trend of metal in the world of interior design is always present, and for lovers of this style, Azteca proposed the Akila collection. It is a risky bet due to its innovative lapped effect, with which they get spectacular metallic reflections. Depending on how it reflects the light, the pieces create glimmers with linear shapes that continue between pieces.

Azteca presents it in 60x120, 60x60, and 30x60 porcelain, all of them rectified with a lapped finish. It is a palette formed by 5 metallic colors that will surprise interior designers with their versatility when combining them with other materials or ceramic finishes. Colors such as graphito, black, white, blue, a navy blue, or wine will make your rooms super modern and unique.
