This year, in addition to being 100% digital, Expo Revestir also innovated by taking the fair literally into the homes of visitors, with more than 700 products from 60 exhibitors modelled in 3D for an experience in augmented reality: Innovative technology that allows the interaction of the virtual world with the real.
Expo Revestir marked by good content and knowledge
In addition to major launches by the industry, it is in the DNA of Expo Revestir to present knowledge through the International Forum of Architecture, Design and Construction (FIAC). This year, through interactions with partners and exhibitors, they brought together 68 events, high-level speakers and an agenda that included themes such as design, management and trends.
The Pritzker winner, Frenchman Christian de Portzamparc, was the centre of attention as he took visitors through his works scattered across both hemispheres.
Join us for a look at a collection of the most tantalising products, materials and trends from this year’s Revestir.
