CAART enjoyed exceptional results at Devotio 2022, the major international trade show dedicated to religious products and services that returned to the BolognaFiere exhibition centre for the third time on 19–21 June 2022. Numerous businesses from the sector visited CAART’s stand over the course of the three days: importers, distributors, retailers and online shops, both secular and religious, as well as parish and community leaders.
There were over 3,000 visitors in total, not just from Italy and Europe, but from all corners of the globe, including the USA, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Ecuador, the Philippines, Japan, South Korea, Angola and Rwanda.
The event gave fresh impetus to a sector severely tested by the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. With over 200 exhibitors from Italy and 15 other countries and with thousands of devotional items and objects used for worship, glasswork, mosaics, vestments and church furnishings and sacred art on display, Devotio helped to both strengthen existing business relationships and forge new ones.
