Four not five days next year at Xylexpo in Italy
From Luca Rossetti, Xylexpo: We are moving fast towards the next Xylexpo, the international showcase of wood and furniture technologies and supplies, that for the first time will span four days (from Tuesday 26 to Friday 29 May 2020), instead of five. This change has been appreciated by the industry, as witnessed by early registrations that have been submitted slightly "in advance" compared to the past, a signal that the renewed commitment of the biennial exhibition is being recognized. Many industry "big" players have already sent their application forms: Biesse, Cefla, Homag, Ima, Scm, Weinig are leading the group of companies that will attend the exhibition in Milan next May.
“We really feel that our determination to reaffirm the exhibition's role has been readily recognized”, said Lorenzo Primultini, president of Xylexpo. “The decision of many companies to come to Milan witnesses to the effectiveness of an exhibition that we want to focus more and more on the quality of the solutions on display, on the most advanced technologies, on real integrated systems. Xylexpo will show the woodworking business and furniture production under a new light, following the momentous change of Industry 4.0".
After the new calendar and the new logo, the third piece of news is the debut of “Focus Components”, an area dedicated to supplies, components and semifinished materials for the furniture industry, “…a business dominated by excellent exhibitions, but we believe that in Milan, in a totally different setting and in close synergy with technology, this business can find new and different opportunities”, Primultini added.
The new format is a collaboration with Made Expo, that will contribute not only with their experience and close relationship with architecture and construction players, but also with the "common language" shared with many companies and big industry players.
The project will revolve around the possibility for exhibitors to have a dedicated area, choosing the most effective option to introduce their products, their strategies and their organization. “We do not want to run after records or to venture into new territories where we don't belong, but we want to respond to those who have always appreciated the opportunity to fin materials and technologies in one place”, Primultini concluded.
