The stage is set for the fourth edition of Tiling Town, to be held at the heart of the Exhibition Centre. The 2015 edition will see greater involvement on the part of Assoposa, which will organise the Master Tiler demonstrations. Collaboration with the Vocational School for young tile layers in the province of Bolzano will also continue.
TilingTownwill be back in a new and more prestigious location alongside the Services Centre at the Exhibition Centre’s main entrance (Area 49).
Now in its fourth edition, the event will bring together the entire world of tile laying at Cersaie. In the space of just a few years, it has seen a considerable improvement in quality and attracted constantly growing numbers of participants and visitors.
Tiling Town 2015 will be divided into 3 separate areas.
A large space will be occupied by Assoposa (Italian ceramic tile layers’ association), whose Master Tilers will give demonstrations of how to install large-format and thin tiles for interiors and exteriors. Numerous demonstrations will be given each day and will be open to all visitors to Cersaie.
Following last year’s success, the 2015 event will once again see the participation of thevocational schoolofSilandro(Bolzano), which will take part inTilingTownin cooperation with the association lvh.apa Confartigianato Imprese ofBolzano. Eleven apprentices accompanied by their tutors will carry out some highly complex work requiring a high level of manual skill, precision and meticulous workmanship.
The school in Silandro is the only Italian educational institute taking part in Worldskills 2015, the world championships of professional skills to be held in August inSão Paulo(Brazil) which will also include a tiling competition.
In another area, the Assoposa master tilers will carry out a particularly complex installation to demonstrate the enormous adaptability of ceramic tiles to any requirement in the field of building and architecture.
Cersaie 2015 will also host a meeting of European manufacturers, retailers and tilers. For the first time, these players will come together to discuss the short and long term market prospects and to explore many themes of shared interest such as technical training of professionals and the state of international standards governing products and installation methods. The meeting will see the participation of representatives of CET (European ceramic tile producers’ association), EUF (European ceramic tile fixers’ association) and distributor and retailer associations from several different countries.
