The organizing committee of Cevisama, the international trade show for the ceramic, bathroom equipment and natural stone industry, met this Wednesday to discuss the convenience of holding the next edition of the show, scheduled for May 24 to 28 after postponing their traditional February dates because of the pandemic.
The sectoral associations represented in the organizing committee, taking into account the majority sensitivity of their associated companies, they have agreed that the evolution The health crisis does not allow Cevisama 2021 to be held with guarantees of success, as indicated in a statement.
In the same sense, Feria Valencia, organizer of the exhibition, has confirmed that the industry needs Cevisama as a trading platform and tool promotion but given the international situation that has caused the pandemic, with mobility restrictions and a very uncertain evolution, it also considers, in line with what other major fair organizers have done in the world, that the coming months are not conducive to celebrate an international fair.
In this way, once the unanimous opinion of the organizing committee has been heard, Feria Valencia has finally decided to suspend the edition of Cevisama 2021, a situation that is produced exceptionally by the world context created by Covid-19 and after several years of excellent results at Cevisama, both in participation and in business volume.
“The evolution of the pandemic worldwide continues to be very negative. Therefore, 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 Ãlvarez , director of Cevisama.
For his part, the president of Cevisama, Manuel Rubert, 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 to 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 the situation and, together with them, we will do our best so that next year Cevisama recovers its full potential and becomes the great sectoral reunion, the moment to return to the market with force and relaunch sales “, concludes the director.
