Xylexpo 2024 will return to the traditional May date, to be precise from 21 to 24 at Fieramilano Rho.
A return to the origins for the world biennial of technologies for woodworking and the furniture industry, which has been held in May since its foundation, however the pandemic emergency had forced the organizers to choose another location thunderstorm in October.
A choice that has led to the development of a different scenario and new partnerships to allow exhibitors and visitors a safe return to normality in a successful event.
Xylexpo 2024: from Tuesday to Friday
A bet that won, because the 2022 edition was certainly the most successful event in the sector after the “Covid storm”.
The 27th edition had in fact recorded over 16,000 unique visitors, a number that rose to over 22,000 if admissions were taken into account, i.e. that a visitor could have entered several times over the 4 days of the fair.
The presence of foreign visitors has dropped by a few percentage points, from 28% in 2018 to 25% in 2022. A percentage that we hope to recover.
Luigi De Vito, president of the exhibition and of Acimall, the association of Italian woodworking machinery manufacturers, owner and organizer of the event: “We have carefully evaluated, in full agreement with all the most important players in the sector, all the alternatives and carefully considered the role of our fair as a promotional vehicle of primary importance. This path led us to choose the days from 21 to 24 May for Xylexpo 2024, for the first time from Tuesday to Friday. A time frame more in line with the current needs of exhibitors and visitors, especially international ones”.
An attractive event for the entire supply chain
The organizers are still defining the details of the new project, which will be even more multimedia-oriented. An event that aims to bring all the protagonists of the sector to Milan, in an event which, as De Vito recalls again, “we want dynamic, full of initiatives, unique in its kind, and which can give everyone the best possible result in terms cultural, promotional and business”.
Xylexpo 2024 https://www.xylexpo.com/it/ will take place at Fieramilano-Rho in the east side pavilions, near the underground station and all motorway, railway and airport connections, to further facilitate visits by Italian operators and foreigners who are already expecting many.
