SAN JOSE, CA -- For the first time, Ceramics of Italy will be taking part in the annual convention of the Decorative Plumbing & Hardware Association, which is set for October 14 to 16 in San Jose, CA.

"In spite of the difficulties caused this year by the fall of the dollar and the economic recession, the U.S. remains one of the key markets for Italian ceramic companies," stated Ceramics of Italy. "It is therefore hardly a surprise that the sector should have been devoting special attention to the opportunities offered by this market in recent months."

Confindustria Ceramica's exhibit will offers visitors various informative and promotional material on the Italian ceramic industry, while displaying tiles provided by member companies.
