Event Description

Each year, during the Cersaie Salone Internazionale, the most important international exhibition for the ceramic and porcelain sector, participating member organizations are invited to an Awards Ceremony for the best exhibition stand.

The Cersaie Award’s Ceremony is organized by Confindustria Ceramica, the umbrella organization behind the Salone which also provides key services to its member companies such as marketing, growth and formation opportunities.

  • Permits & Security: Building permits, security plan, security on-site pre and during event, author rights, parking permits and public land permits

Technical Images

Client’s receive full 3-D renders in order to best plan the layout, mood and event concept during the Event Planning Phase.  Our Technical Department conducts on-site evaluations of the space in order to gather all technical information for a complete and professional build.



This event, hosted in the historical city-centre of Bologna in a Medieval Castle constructed in 1200 A.D., required a significant amount of planning to meet city requirements for both the technical set-up and pedestrian movement to the location.
