Tecnargilla 2012 will highlight the latest developments in the advanced ceramics, raw materials, brick and design sectors.
From September 24-28, ceramic industry suppliers will gather at the Rimini Expo Center in Italy for Tecnargilla 2012. This year’s tagline, “The Future of Ceramics,” is an apt descriptor for the 23rd biennial exhibition, which will feature the most cutting-edge ceramic innovations in a comprehensive range of products. Advanced ceramics, tile, brick, refractories, sanitaryware, and raw materials developments will all be showcased at the 2012 show.
This year’s event organizers (ACIMAC and Rimini Fiera) hope to surpass the success of Tecnargilla 2010, which attracted over 31,000 international visitors and 450 exhibitors. Official delegations of international buyers are expected to arrive from all parts of the world, including India, Vietnam, Indonesia, China, and others.
Claytech, the section specifically aimed at suppliers and machinery in the brick sector, will return to Tecnargilla for the fourth time. It will feature machinery and equipment exhibits to highlight the many brick and heavy clay companies present at the event.
Advanced ceramics will be the focus of Kermat 2012, which will feature displays for raw materials, components, technological processes and manufacturing systems. Buyers and manufacturers of advanced ceramic technologies and products may also be interested in a series of related conferences that will be offered by international industry researchers and professionals as part of Kermat.
Ceramic design professionals will not want to miss the creative displays at Kromatech. This exhibit will showcase a variety of innovative aesthetic trends in every sector of ceramic design, including raw materials, graphics, glazes and more.
Tecnargilla’s Ceramic Technology Transfer Day (TTD) will take place from September 25-27. Researchers will present recent studies about innovative ceramic technologies with the goal of initiating partnerships or new business ventures with interested companies. For the first time, a Ceramic TTD Award will be presented to the best research projects in ceramics. A designated panel of judges will select three award winners. Offers and requests for technological solutions can be found online at www.ceramicttd.it.
Tecnargilla 2012 events will also bring back the ever-popular Ceramic Workshop and the Tecnargilla Design Award competition, which will allow qualified experts to judge the most creative concepts, materials, and technology in ceramic wall and floor tile.
