Tecnargilla 2016 Ends on a High Note

The twenty-fifth edition of Tecnargilla, the most important ceramic and brick industry supplies exhibition in the world, ended on 30 September 2016.Yet another success to confirm the leading position of the exhibition organised by Acimac (the Association of Italian Manufacturers of Machinery and Equipment for Ceramics) and Rimini Fiera in terms of both the number and quality of the innovations proposed by the exhibiting companies and of the number of exhibitors and visitors.The optimism that was already tangible in the 12 halls occupied from the first hours of opening was shown to be well founded by the closing data.Tecnargilla 2016 saw the participation of 33,395 visitors from more than 100 countries worldwide: a figure that means 4% growth with respect to the 2014 edition.

The international operators outnumbered the Italians for the first time, a record that confirms Tecnargilla´s international character, not only among the exhibitions of the sector, but exhibitions in general. There were 16,764 foreign visitors, growth of 6.3% with respect to the previous edition and equal to 50.3% of the total.There were instead 16,631 Italian operators, growth of +1.7% and 49.7% of the total.
