Ceramics Expo 2017 continues its final day at the I-X Center in Cleveland, Ohio, today. The 3rd installment of this annual expo for all things ceramic and glass has definitely delivered on its promise to be bigger and better than ever before.

On Wednesday, the expo got off to a great start with a visit from Cleveland mayor Frank Jackson, who toured the expo and posed for several photos.

In addition to the local celebrity citing, the Ceramics Expo show floor has been bustling with exhibitors engaging with prospective clients, answering questions, and discussing the benefits of their products and services. Plus, networking has been all around, occurring from the top to the bottom of the entire supply chain.
