On the heels of its record-breaking attendance figures, Unicera 2007 organizers say they are ready to take the exposition to a higher level by becoming a center for designers, architects, retailers and distributors.

Held annually in Istanbul, Unicera’s committee says that Turkey, “as a global player in ceramics, has an excellent geographical position to organize the trade show where the newest trends and ground-breaking products can be accessed.”

In addition to hosting Unicera, the committee has invited 10 ceramic firm representatives from Morocco to view Turkey’s latest ceramic product developments, designs and trends. As a result of Morocco’s receptiveness to its invitation, Unicera committee members are planning to invite ceramic professionals from Russia, U.S.A., Germany, England, Canada and Denmark for the 2008 exposition.

Unicera 2008 takes place April 2-6 in Istanbul.
