Every year, many tile brands from India take part in several exhibitions in India & abroad. Below we have enlisted some of the popular ceramic exhibitions.
This show is being organized by an Indian media group – The Economic Times. It’s organized in each metro city of India such as Bengaluru, Mumbai, New Delhi NCR & Hyderabad.
Until 2016 this show used to be a “must attend” for tile industry professionals. the charm of AceTech faded due to Vibrant Ceramics Expo after December 2016. They don’t organize Vibrant Ceramic anymore so AceTech is back into the limelight.
Acetech show is still relevant for general building material professionals. It covers wide building material product range and it’s presence across India.
Vibrant Ceramics Expo & Summit
Due to the below reasons, this show received wide coverage among tile industry professionals:
- First of all, it is only such exhibition focused on finished ceramic tile products
- It received generous sponsorship from local factories. Also continuous support by local ceramic associations
- The venue they choose (Ahmedabad / Gandhinagar) is near Morbi. This helps better participation by exhibitors
- Good connectivity & plenty of hotels in Ahmedabad helps the show. We saw more visitors during the 2nd iteration of the event (2017).
The organizers made roadshows across 18 states of India and 45 countries across the world
- The show also has good support from the government
Please note the show has been re-branded under CERAMIX Expo.
Indian Ceramics – Ahmedabad
Being organized since 2005 this is the oldest among ceramic exhibitions. Two major show organizers (Messe München GmbH & Unifair Exhibition Service Co. Ltd.) exhibiting together at a bigger venue.
The event covers technical aspects of the industry. Such as refractory materials, raw materials, additives, machinery, etc
The BIG 5 Show – Dubai
Middle-East is the main export market for ceramic companies in India. BIG 5 exhibition is a must-attend event for a building material company factory. Many tiles manufacturers from Morbi take part in this exhibition. This helps to get exposure to the big Middle-East and African markets
CEVISAMA (also known as Feria Valencia) – Spain
Innovation at a reasonable price is at the center stage for Spanish tile industry. Do you want to see the vastness of the world ceramic industry? This is is the must-attend exhibition during February each year at Valencia, Spain.
Only a few Indian factories take part in Cevisama. Some of them are Colortile, Sunhearrt, Varmora, Boss group (Magnum / Velsaa), Itaca, Lioli.
There should be more participation for the sake of brand building in global markets.
CERSAIE – Bologna, Italy
For a tile aficionado, CERSAIE is the exhibition of the year to learn new trends. If you are looking for unique/exclusive tiles you should visit this event. They organize this fair during September each year. Since decades Italy has remained trendsetter in the international ceramic industry. Many tiles & sanitary ware manufacturers from Morbi visit the CERSAIE exhibition every year. There is little or no participation in this show by the local industry. Big brands like Qutone, AGL, Simpolo, Somany, Kajaria are participating there.
