Billed as the only North American commercial tradeshow for all raw materials, equipment, machinery, and technology within the ceramic and glass manufacturing supply chain, Ceramics Expo 2016 officially kicked off this morning at the I-X Center in Cleveland, Ohio. The show runs through Thursday, April 28.

Ceramics Expo is the place to be for all things ceramic and glass. And it shows—more than 280 companies are exhibiting at this year’s event. The aisles of the I-X Center are already filled with visitors checking out the latest products, equipment, and more from leaders within the ceramic and glass manufacturing supply chain.

As someone who attended the first-ever Ceramics Expo last year, I have to say that this year’s event is bigger, better, and even more exciting than the inguaral show. Not only are there more exhibitors on the show floor, but each has stepped up its game this year—booths and displays are more impressive and more interactive than ever. There are live demos, machines humming, and eager representatives ready to engage visitors.

Speaking of visitors, if you haven’t yet registered for your FREE pass to Ceramics Expo 2016, there’s still time—sign up now and stop by. And when you do, be sure to come to ACerS booth (#308) to say hello and pick up some free goodies!
