Industry Relevance 

TECNA is an international trade fair that plays a crucial role in the surfaces industry. Held every two years at Rimini Fiera, TECNA is organised by Acimac (Association of Italian Manufacturers of Machinery and Equipment for Ceramics) and IEG - Italian Exhibition Group. This event brings together the best of innovation in aesthetics and processes for the sector, making it a powerhouse of a marketplace for surface-related businesses.

A reason why TECNA commands the respect and attention of its entire professional community has to do with the quality of exhibitors. Exhibiting companies have established themselves as pioneers in creating efficient and sustainable factories. They have revolutionised production processes and expanded the range of end-user applications by introducing enormous cut-to-size slabs. These companies have embraced digital technologies and robotics. It’s not an exaggeration to say that the future of surfacing is first built here. 

TECNA serves as the international hub for the development of surfaces and covers all relevant product groups. You’ll find the exhibition space is divided into seven main areas:

  • Digitalisation: Showcasing solutions and software for the digitalisation of factories and the evolution of production processes.
  • Raw Materials: Highlighting the preparation of raw materials and products for installation.
  • Decoration: Presenting both conventional and digital decoration systems.
  • Finishing: Exhibiting finishing and cutting techniques for large and extra-large sizes.
  • Handling & Packaging: Showcasing internal handling and packaging solutions.
  • Logistic & Transportation: Addressing innovative requirements to resolve logistics problems in the industry.
  • Green Solutions: Promoting environmentally friendly practices by reducing polluting emissions, fumes, wastewater & other industrial waste. Renewable energy & co-generation are also emphasised.

As a global platform, TECNA attracts industry players from around the world who are seeking greater competitiveness and production efficiency, staying updated on the latest trends and exploring advanced technological innovations in decoration and design. The exhibition caters to various aspects such as large formats, full digital solutions, and environmental sustainability.
