ASCER members to showcase the best of ‘Made in Spain’ at Cevisama 2023 expo in Valencia

More than 50 leading companies affiliated to ASCER – the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers’ Association – are exhibiting their latest trend-setting innovative products at the 39th edition of Cevisama, at Feria Valencia, Valencia, Spain, from February 27 to March 3, 2023.

Organised and hosted by Feria Valencia, the largest exhibition space in Spain and among the 10 largest event venues in the world, Cevisama 2023 is the leading international trade fair for ceramic floor, wall and paving tiles, bathroom equipment, natural stone, industrialised construction and machinery.

With fresh innovation, a clear commitment to technology and net-zero focus, the 2023 edition of Cevisama is significant as the 2022 edition was not held due to the severe energy crisis in Europe resulting from the war in Ukraine, while the global Covid-19 pandemic also ruled out the 2021 edition of the trade show.
