Much awaited Xylexpo rescheduled to 2022
Published on : Monday, July 13, 2020
The pandemic has made 2020 an exceptionally challenging year for trade shows and forced organisers of Xylexpo to reschedule the much awaited event to 2022. “The Board of Cepra-Centro promozionale Acimall had to take note that it is impossible to organize Xylexpo in 2020, setting the next date for exhibitors and visitors in 2022”.
Another victim of the pandemic situation, as the organisers made it official that the highly anticipated Xylexpo 2020 will no longer happen at present due to the growing health emergency across the world, and announced new dates in 2022.
Cepra communicated the non-existence of objective conditions to organize the 2020 edition of Xylexpo, Biennial world exhibition for woodworking technology and furniture supplies, with an official letter to all exhibitors signed by President Lorenzo Primultini on July 6, 2020.
“Postponing the exhibition to November 2020 – Primultini’s letter states – seemed the best possible solution, but the efforts of our organization in recent months and the constant monitoring of all the conditions required to offer a successful exhibition have clearly shown that the situation in November will not be favorable, yet.
With its global scope and more than one out of three exhibitors and visitors coming from abroad, Xylexpo has an international soul and vocation that would be seriously jeopardized by sanitary and economic conditions that are still unsolved in many world regions”.
So, the date with Xylexpo is postponed to 2022: the exhibition team is already working to design a Xylexpo event that takes into account new ideas and recent changes to create a new and more modern “digital oriented” showcase, deploying a strategy that will be supported with proposals and initiatives in the coming months.
