    Can I translate "halle d'exposition" by "exhibition hall" meaning an industrial building for putting a collection of tiles on display ?

    Thanks for your help

    I don't believe "exhibition halls" are typically found in industrial buildings. I am unable to think up an alternative at this time, however.

    Are the tiles exhibited as art for admiration, or displayed for sale?

    In that case, what about "a showpiece?" or merely "a display."

    Is it correct to name a building?

    Oh sorry, for the name of a building? I assumed the display was in the industrial building.

    I have no idea then.

    Thanks for the help anyway, Franglais1969, I've kept my original "exhibition hall", can't think of anything else...
