Once again, the ASEAN Ceramics trade fair has successfully established its status as the meeting point of the Ceramics Industry. Inaugurated by His Excellency Dr. Surapol Chamatr, Deputy Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Industry of Thailand with Mr. Paolo Dionisi, Ambassador of The Embassy of Italy and Giuseppe Lamacchia, Trade Commissioner of Italian Trade Agency, the show opened its doors to over 100 exhibitors and brands and 2,128 attendees from nearly 30 countries attended the event from 30 November – 02 December 2022. The top 5 international visitors came from ASEAN 82.4%, Asia 10.2%, Europe 4.0% and others 1.6% with the largest footprints coming from India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Japan, Singapore and Indonesia. The exhibition is a continuation of its previous editions to reunite the Ceramic Industry in support of providing the ASEAN region with access to the world’s leading technologies, equipment, solutions, know-how and best practices available in the market. Suppliers of the industry were able to meet, network and showcase their expertise to the key buyers and trade visitors, and have successfully strengthened and re-established their foothold in the world’s most dynamic region for the ceramics industry.
The trade fair calls for a significant regathering of the industry, and its positive turnout reflects the strength and commitment of the sector to reconnect after the pandemic. As highlighted by several exhibitors and trade visitors, a platform such as ASEAN Ceramics is still undoubtedly the best way to network and gain exposure to a global reach in the shortest amount of time. Michael Wilton, CEO & Managing Director of MMI Asia Pte Ltd and organiser of the exhibition, emphasized, “It is heartening to witness the regathering of the Ceramics Industry after the years of restrictions on physical meetings, be it for business or socially. There is a strength in this reunion as it reflects the sector’s commitment and pursuit for knowledge to support the overall growth of Ceramics in the Southeast Asian region.”
