Tiling Town will be back at Cersaie in Italy this year in a more than 400-square-meter space in Hall 32. This 11th edition of Tiling Town will feature installation showcases by Assoposa master tile layers.
The area will host technical seminars on large ceramic slab installation, aimed at architects and designers. Each one will be a two-hour, practical demonstration in a fully functional installation workshop. The seminars will be held every afternoon from Monday, Sept. 25 to Thursday, Sept. 28, and on the morning of Friday, Sept. 29. Participating architects, engineers and surveyors will earn professional training credits.
A large space in Tiling Town will also be occupied by the Italian national tile installers’ association, Assoposa, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. The space will host the Tiling Town Matinees organized by Assoposa’s Platinum Members and focusing on the most pressing issues in the tile industry.
Assoposa organizes training courses and promotes Tile Layer Certification. To keep visitors informed about all the opportunities for specialization and professional growth in the industry, a special area will be devoted to the Assoposa Academy training courses, including an exhibition of spaces and furnishings created using ceramic tiles of all sizes, from the smallest mosaics to large slabs.
Tiling Town will also host the Casa Italia internet radio station, specializing in the home and living sector. Paola Leccese, who presents Bricks & Music, will broadcast live at 9:30 a.m. with a lineup of guests who will discuss different topics on each of the five days of the exhibition.
