Bologna town itself comes alive during the fair. With talks and presentations held in many corners of this beautiful city. it is worth the visit. There are over 900 exhibitors from about 30 countries. Each exhibitor has a “stand”, akin to a showroom. The Stands are designed to inspire and engage the attention of the many thousands of daily visitors. Some Stands resemble virtual Homes. Exhibitors do not sell tiles with their Stands. They offer design solutions, with their creative displays.

Large Format Tiles was one of the newest trends to hit Cersiae 2017. Sizes have expanded to 1.2m x 2.6m. Tiles of this size are a suitable solution for wall coverings, internal blade walls, and anywhere which demands a point of interest. They can even be used as surfaces for bench tops.
