With a significant rise in visitor registration, Xylexpo, covering an area close to 30 thousand square meters, with 311 Italian companies and 122 international exhibitors, has opened its gates today to celebrate its 25th edition. The show will run till May 28 at the FieraMilano-Rho expo center.
Biesse, Cefla, Homag Group, Ima-Schelling, Scm Group are the brands under the spotlights at the upcoming edition, where – with an unprecedented result – halls 1 and 3, dedicated to panel finishing and secondary processing, are sold out.
“Considering the number of exhibitors and the 30 percent increase in visitor pre-registrations so far, we really believe we can expect a successful May”, commented Acimall’s director Dario Corbetta. “The Italian market is definitely showing encouraging signals, the lineup is complete, woodworking technology users can feel that the wind has changed, and they are seriously considering to renovate or expand their fleets. This is generating a virtuous circle that Xylexpo 2016 will reflect”.
The 2016 edition of Xylexpo will be characterized by a strong support of Italian Trade agency and Mise – Ministry of Economic Development. Thanks to the contribution of these important institutions big projects were organized such as the visitors Incoming, the ” Xylexpo night” and the promotional campaign abroad.
