Scheduled March 2 to 6 in Valencia, Spain, Cevisama promises to focus on design and product application, innovation, and fashion for the ceramic tiles, kitchen and bathroom equipment industries.

Another of the key features of the fair will be its high level of international participation, both in terms of exhibitors and trade visitors. Up to this date, 700 companies -- 125 from outside Spain -- have confirmed their participation.

Cevisama will feature a full program of activities, including the EXCO Seminars, the International Design Awards, and the Alfas de Oro Awards presented by the Spanish Society of Ceramic and Glass to distinguish the most innovative products and processes.

The final occupation forecast for Cevisama 2004 is estimated at around 86,000 net square meters, of which 73,000 square meters have already been contracted out, organizers say. In 2004, Cevisama organizers will also host a Machinery Show, showing the latest innovations in equipment for the ceramic industry.
