Presented by IDC, Ceramics of Italy, Cer magazine, Azure magazine, Cersaie and Confidustria Ceramic, Cersaie Trends + Tiles 2013 took place in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver from May 28 to 30.

IDC members joined Catherine Osborne, editor of Azure magazine, in conversation with local designers at one of three cross-Canada IDCEC accredited seminars where they shared their favourite design trends and technical innovations from Cersaie, the world’s largest exhibition of tile and bathroom furnishings.

Speakers and manufacturers were welcomed by enthusiastic attendees in each location – 85 in Toronto, 45 in Montreal and 75 in Vancouver.   

A special thanks to each local designer who sat down to discuss their experience in Cersaie.
