- Feria Valencia suspends the appointment to guarantee the business of exhibitors and the attendance of buyers and sets the new dates from February 7 to 11, 2022
The organizing committee of Cevisama, the international trade fair for the ceramic, bathroom equipment and natural stone industry, met today to discuss the convenience of holding the next edition of the show, scheduled for the May 24-28 after having postponed their traditional February dates due to the pandemic.
The sectoral associations represented in the organizing committee, taking into account the majority sensitivity of their associated companies, have agreed that the evolution of the health crisis does not allow Cevisama 2021 to be held with guarantees of success. In the same sense, Feria Valencia, organizer of the exhibition, has confirmed that the industry needs Cevisama as a commercial platform and promotional tool but given the international situation that has caused the pandemic, with mobility restrictions and an uncertain evolution, it also considers , in line with what other major fair organizers have done in the world, that the next few months are not conducive to holding an international fair.
In this way, after several consecutive years of excellent results at Cevisama, both in terms of business and attendance by professional visitors, it has been decided to finally suspend the edition of Cevisama 2021.
“The evolution of the pandemic worldwide continues to be very bad. For this reason, despite the fact that we were working hard to prepare for the May edition with new marketing and commercial proposals, we have to choose with great regret to cancel the 2021 edition, ”says Carmen Álvarez, Cevisama’s director.
As the president of Cevisama Manuel Rubert has said: he stressed that the organization “deeply regrets having to make this decision” but, he insists, “the investment made by companies is very important and we cannot hold a fair that does not guarantee our clients a return on that investment and give them business opportunities ”.
Finally, the organizing committee has set the dates for the next call, which will be from February 7 to 11, 2022. “We are sure that our clients, exhibitors, visitors, suppliers and all the professionals involved in our great fair understand this situation and, together with them, we will do our best so that next year Cevisama recovers its full potential and becomes the great meeting point for the sector again, the moment to return to the market with force and relaunch sales ”, concludes the director.
