The quality and internationality of the buyer and the volume of business have marked the latest edition of Cevisama. For four days the fair showed the latest trends in the ceramics sector and its related industries, natural stone and bathing, and has become an international meeting point for all professionals linked to these sectors.
According to the president of the contest, Armando Ibáñez, “the perceptions, depending on what they have told us in the stands, are magnificent”. Ibáñez has emphasized that the “widespread comment is that the fair has been visited by a lot of international buyer and that it has done business”. “I know some euphoric manufacturers, because they have closed very important contracts,” he explains.
In this has insisted Carmen Alvarez, director of Cevisama: “From day one we have noticed a considerable influx mainly as an international buyer and the customers have corroborated it to us. Professionals from the Arab market, from Russia and from traditional European markets have had a very prominent presence.”
For his part, the president of Ascer (Spanish Association of Tile and Ceramic Flooring Manufacturers), Joaquín Piñón, has emphasized the quality of the visitor. “Everything was target audience. The visitors were interested buyers,” he said.
The Spanish ceramics industry, which has managed to close the year with an increase of more than 10 exports and plans to grow again abroad in this exercise, has again demonstrated its confidence in Cevisama as a marketing tool and commercial platform undisputed to address new markets.
The president of Cevisama also wanted to emphasize that Spanish companies “have once again demonstrated why they are leaders in innovation, setting up a new and attractive showcase that has exceeded the expectations of the most demanding visitors”.
On the last day of Cevisama, the president of the Globality and Microeconomic saloon Foundation, Justo Nieto, has closed the Exco conference cycle organized by the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV).
Cevisama 2013 concluded on February 8 successfully.
