Ceramitec 2006 Draws Approximately 22,000 Visitors (6/1/06)

June 5, 2006

Despite the concentration of events in the sector this year, Ceramitec 2006 attracted around 22,000 trade visitors from 106 countries -- almost as many visitors as at Ceramitec 2003, though the current event had been shortened by one day. More than 50% of these trade visitors came from abroad. "No other fair is as international as Ceramitec. No other event has such a balanced structure in its range. In four days of exhibition, Ceramitec brings the global ceramics industry together in one place," said Eugen Egetenmeir, member of the managing board of Messe M√ľnchen. According to the results of a survey by TNS Infratest, Ceramitec's visitors included a high proportion of decision makers (91%), with 66% of these in managerial positions. The next Ceramitec will take place in 2009.
