Profilpas at Cersaie 2016: a final report
The edition 2016 of Cersaie, the international exhibition of ceramic tile and bathroom furnishing, took place from 26th to 30th in Bologna in collaboration with Bologna Fiere and promoted by Confindustria Ceramica. Besides the record inflow with a 4.7% more against the last-year edition, internationality is another significant element to be considered in this post-exhibition: 335 out of 852 exhibitors (a 4% more than 2015) were non-Italian companies and 50.976 out of 106.599 visitors were foreigners (a 5.7% more). After years of stagnation, this sector is finally increasing and is characterized by a more active attendance not only in terms of figures but also in terms of real interest.
Alongside the exhibitors of ceramic tiles and bathroom furnishings, for which Cersaie assumes a leading position in Europe, there has been a large presence of exhibitors of wood, marble and stone surfaces thus confirming the trend showed last year.
Cersaie has also been a great success for Profilpas. Many new products have been presented and largely admired by visitors. The new Trend Color, Stone and Light, have been very popular: the two lines of finishes to “dress” the external corners profiles Profilpas Design with fashionable colours and to follow the current trends of interior design. Great approval has also been showed for the two new Prolight profiles and the flush with the floor shower drains Slim Drain and Smart Drain which had already been presented last year but keep on being appreciated thanks to the design and the style they give to the bathroom area.
The visitors have also showed a great approval for our display materials and for the new area of our stand dedicated to Prolight profiles: a dark room to give the idea of how our LED light profiles can transform the space, by changing the spacial volume of the room
