Initially scheduled from 24 to 26 February, the 1th Mecfor will reposition itself in the second half of May, again in the Parma exhibition center. A slide desired by the organizers to offer greater safety to visitors and exhibitors.
The exact dates of the mechanics and subcontracting fair will be defined shortly, the organizers specified in a press release, due to the international trade fair calendars, still under discussion due to the emergency.
Mecfor will have over 24,000 square meters of the Parma exhibition center available for its first edition.
The event is organized by Fiere di Parma, the historic organizer of the Subcontracting Exhibition, dedicated to the outsourcing of activities in the field of mechanics, but also electronics, plastics and more. Along with Fiere di Parma also Ceu – Centro Esposizioni Ucimu, organizer of the main international machine tool and metalworking fairs such as Bimu and Lamiera.
The peculiarities of the first edition
1th Mecfor will be the first new fair this year, dedicated to two sectors that are not only strategic for the country, but also closely related. We are talking about the mechanical and subcontracting sectors, which together represent 50% of the Italian manufacturing sector.
The new fair will consist of three halls, distinct from each other, but at the same time integrated. One is “Revamping”, which deals in particular with the market of modernized and updated machine tools; “Turning” is mainly dedicated to the lathe. Finally, “Subfornitura”, which has already been mentioned.
A show of particular interest will be Revamping. In this area it will be shown how machine tools can, if properly retrofitted, have a second life. Machines will be exhibited that are not only economically convenient, but also of standard quality required by Industry 4.0.
A dunche show that responds to the needs of sustainable production in line with the circular economy approach, which is gaining ground even in the world of heavy industry.
