Ceramics China 2019
New efforts are under way to maximize the exhibitor and attendee experience at Ceramics China 2019.
From June 18-21, 2019, Ceramics China will celebrate its 33rd anniversary at the Canton Fair Pazhou Complex in Guangzhou, China. Over 1,000 exhibitors from more than 20 countries and regions are expected to showcase their cutting-edge technology, high-end products, and advanced concepts. In addition, show organizers expect tens of thousands of insiders from the worldwide ceramic industry to attend the event. (The 2018 event featured 895 exhibitors and nearly 99,000 attendees.)
At a press conference, Han Xiuping, general manager of event organizer Unifair Exhibition Service Co., Ltd., shared details regarding the preparatory work, plan and arrangement of Ceramics China 2019. She outlined five important efforts that Ceramics China has undertaken for this year. The first is a shift to what she called a better and more considerate date for the show. This year’s event will avoid overlapping with a weekend, major holiday or any sanitaryware exhibition in order to meet the needs of organizing insiders and worldwide professional buyers. Han explained that the second effort is the introduction of “a monitor system of separate exhibition space” to allow more exhibitors to participate under the fixed exhibition area.
The organizers’ third effort is for all sponsors and organizers of Ceramics China to cooperate more closely together than ever, integrating resources and deepening their cooperation with trade associations and the exhibition organizers worldwide to organize additional foreign exhibitors and visitors. Along those same lines, organizers plan to further enhance the promotion of the exhibition and visitor invitations worldwide, conduct multilingual, multi-channel, multi-level and multi-form promotion. The fifth effort involves actively promoting the organization of the “China-Africa Industrial Cooperation Forum,” the “China-India Ceramics Technical Exchange Forum,” investment trade meetings, business docking, and other activities with industrial associations and media worldwide.
Ceramics China continues to display its international influence by attracting a large number of non-Chinese exhibitors and overseas buyers. Among them, the Italian Pavilion has been part of the event for nearly 30 years. Cecilia Costantino, chief representative of the Italian Trade Commission Guangzhou office, participated in the press conference as a global partner of Ceramics China 2019. She stated that there are deep relations between China and Italy. For years, Italian technology has been providing support and assistance for the development of China’s ceramic industry. The introduction of Italian technology by China’s ceramics enterprises has improved product quality and reduced production costs, according to Costantino. She further explained that, through Ceramics China, Italian enterprises have been able to showcase the latest technology and solutions while establishing long-term and important partnerships with China’s enterprises.
At the same press conference, Chen Guoqing, vice president of the China Building Material Federation (CBMF) and president of CCPIT Building Materials Sub-Council, said “China Building Material Federation and China Light Industry Council have reached an agreement that from 2019, we will co-organize Ceramics China with China Building Ceramics & Sanitaryware Association, CCPIT Building Materials Sub-Council and China Ceramic Industrial Association, to serve the purpose of fulfilling the requirements from industries and enterprises, integrating resources from all sources, and providing better service for both exhibitors and visitors. Related units in CBMF will fully support and continue our efforts to organize Ceramics China 2019, so as to better play the role of exhibition in promoting high-quality development of China’s building and sanitary ceramics industry.”
