The 55th Marmomac, dedicated to marble, technology and design, is back in attendance. After the last edition, held on digital channels in 2020, the world of marble is starting to do business and live relationships again.
From 29 September to 2 October the most important world event centered on natural stone, granite, processing technologies, means of transport and lifting, applied design and services returns to the Verona exhibition center.
Although the pandemic still puts a strain on production systems around the world and travel abroad, the 55th Marmomac managed to maintain the exhibition’s international standards high.
International interest confirmed
This year there are 756 exhibiting companies, of which 427 are Italian and 329 foreign for a total of 39 countries represented. In particular, 80 companies from Turkey participate, 15 from Brazil, thanks also to the collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Health on the “green corridors” for foreign economic operators, 11 from Egypt and 6 from Iran.
The entire natural stone supply chain is represented in the district: 53% of the exhibitors present specialize in product and architecture, 18% in machinery, 14% in tools and 5% in services. The exhibition space amounts to over 60 thousand square meters, distributed between 9 pavilions and the outdoor areas.
Investments by companies in stand fitting and communication at the fair also testify to the importance of the 55th Marmomac as an effective promotional tool for the sector.
The event will be attended by 250 top foreign buyers, figures selected by the network of Veronafiere delegates and by ICE Agenzia, considered strategic to allow companies to meet new markets. THE
n particular, there will be important delegations of architects, importers of slabs and technologies from the United States, Canada, Russia and the Maghreb (Egypt, Algeria and Tunisia), crucial areas for the development of exclusive and luxury projects. Among the most represented foreign countries also Iran and Jordan.
This number does not represent the total number of foreign professional visitors expected at Marmomac 2021, but only those invited and hosted thanks to the Veronafiere and ICE Agenzia incoming programs.
The training events dedicated to buyers selected for the incoming project financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and carried out in collaboration with ICE Agenzia and Confindustria Marmomacchine are also confirmed for the 55th Marmomac.
The Marmomac Academy program continues for them, which for years has guaranteed architects and designers the recognition of AIA and RIBA training credits.
