Cersaie hard at work on the 2020 edition | by Andrea Serri
The health of every individual and our community at large is always our first priority. In this moment, our thoughts are with those sick with COVID-19 as well as their families, and our deepest gratitude goes to the extraordinary people at the Sistema Sanitario Nazionale and the Protezione Civile, who are on the front lines working tirelessly day and night to solve this global problem.
The difficult measures taken by the Italian government and respectfully followed through by its citizens are truly the right course of action for containing the mass spread of the virus at this time. Italy is not alone alone: as many countries have been battling this same virus and others will be following in this same path in the coming months. We have pulled together with a unified and unprecedented international commitment to solve this emergency and face the economic consequences together as a result.
Everyone within their job and daily life must contribute, however small, to this massive global effort. In this difficult year, the show management team and the entire Italian ceramic tile industry are working together so that Cersaie, which will be November 9 to 13, 2020, can remain a global home for innovation and design. The Cersaie team is strictly following proper “social distancing” rules and all staff are working from home. With a robust line-up of exhibitors, show management is pleased to announce a new initiative for 2020, the Contract Hall in Pavilion 18. This new exhibition space will present a range of commercial products and be a busy hub for programming and meeting points for commercial professionals.
Cersaie’s website and social channels, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube will be regularly updated with news and content so visitors are invited to follow for product and event previews and planning.
