Tecnargilla 2004 Draws International Crowd
The international scope of the show was also reflected in the exhibitors. Of the 773 exhibitors, foreign companies accounted for 292 (37.8%) and included a variety of companies involved in the supply of machinery, raw materials, goods and services to the ceramic and brick industries. Kromatech, a special section devoted to color and glazes that was introduced at Tecnargilla 2002, was slightly larger at this year's event. With more than 220 exhibitors (55% foreign), Kromatech represented approximately 28.5% of the show. Claytech, a new section devoted to brick and tile technologies, featured more than 100 exhibitors, nearly half of which were from outside of Italy.
The next edition of Tecnargilla will be held in 2006. (The exact dates have not yet been announced.) For more information, visit http://www.tecnargilla.com.
