The 19th Tecnargilla, a leading exhibition of technologies and supplies for the ceramic and brick industries, will be held in Rimini, Italy, October 1-5, 2004. The event is organized by Rimini Fiera in cooperation with Acimac (Italian Ceramic Plant and Machinery Manufacturers' Association). After the success of the 2002 show, the organizers officially confirmed the transformation of Tecnargilla from a triennial to a biennial event. The other new feature of Tecnargilla 2004 lies in the days on which it is scheduled. Instead of the Tuesday to Saturday scheduling adopted in the past (coinciding with Cersaie in Bologna), the event will be held from Friday to Tuesday, with the overlap between the two events limited to just the weekend. This will make it possible to spread visits to the two events over eight days, which is important since both shows are key events for industry professionals.
