The 2018 edition of Xylexpo– the biennial international exhibition of woodworking and furniture industry technology, held at FieraMilano-Rho starting today, i.e from Tuesday 8 to Saturday 12 May, 2018 – is going to be a milestone in the 50-year success story of the event: the area has been virtually sold out much earlier and, with the addition of a fourth hall, the exhibition is covering close to 35 thousand net square meters, a significant progress from 29,189 in the previous edition, when the area expansion amounted to two thousand square meters compared to 2014.
So, after many “highs and lows”, Xylexpo seems to have found its dimension for many reasons: there are all the big actors of a technological sector that is going through a period of deep transformation- referring to “Industry X.0” topics, as well as plenty of concepts and trends related to the new “IoT” space, visions and new manufacturing processes that can be found at Xylexpo more than anywhere else.
In recent years, the Milan exhibition has been moving into a clear direction, offering a comprehensive and detailed review of everything that fits into the concept of “high technology” for secondary processing. Such transformation is clearly visible: Xylexpo is increasingly becoming a reference for all segments where “technology turnaround” is very fast, where user requirements are “chasing” the market and urging fast changes in production systems.
Wood & Panel is proud to be associated with the show once again this year. The special edition dedicated to Xylexpo is now available both online and from our stand at Hall 2, Booth #N30 during the show!
