CERAMIC NETWORK, the international forum for design and innovation in ceramics, started in 1996 and intends to become the unmissable gathering for professionals.
This event is organised by the Agence Régionale de Développement (ARD – Regional Development Agency) du Limousin, with the support of the state and local authorities, and in partnership with ANVAR and CRAFT.
A three-yearly event, CERAMIC NETWORK in 1996 brought together in Limousin 600 professionals from 10 countries and provided more than 550 business meetings, which generated commercial agreements and research programmes. The workshops enabled participants to exchange their experiences with internationally renowned manufacturers and designers.
The 1999 edition brought together the big names in ceramics: 670 manufacturers, scientists and designers from 17 countries. As during the first edition, the European Exchange for ceramic technology transfers and partnerships put 120 people in contact, representing 80 different structures (400 scheduled meetings and a hundred spontaneous ones conducted in real time).
