Press release n. 11 of the 11/06/2021 16.45.56 ( download )

The world´s leading exhibition of ceramic technologies will be held as usual in even-numbered years

The next edition of Tecnargilla, the foremost global exhibition of ceramic technologies and solutions organised by Acimac and IEG - Italian Exhibition Group, will be held in September 2022.

Tecnargilla will be held next year in the Rimini Exhibition Centre in keeping with a tradition that has cemented the show´s status as the leading international trade fair in the sector and the global hub of technological and aesthetic innovation.

Given the current international situation, the only way of ensuring the size, effectiveness and level of international participation that are the show´s strengths and make it the world´s leading exhibition of ceramic technologies is to maintain its customary biennial format.

For this reason, the decision has been taken not to alter the biennial frequency of the show, which is traditionally held in Rimini in even-numbered years. Moreover, this solution will enable exhibiting companies to maximise the opportunities offered by the event and to present new technologies and products to their global customers.

As already announced, the new show will be the first to be held with the new formula. Tecna . How to make it will have an even wider range of exhibition offerings, including a special focus on technologies for digital printing, surface finishing and large slab handling combined with the latest innovations in manufacturing digitalisation.

Tecna 2022 will be the most important international exhibition of machinery, equipment, raw materials, colours and additives for the production of surfaces, an event where exhibitors will unveil major technological innovations marking the resurgence of a sector that already this year is showing strong signs of recovery.
