Celebrating success beyond expectations, XYLEXPO 2022 witnessed a grand response after four years of complete wait. This edition once again boosted the woodworking industry from the country to worldwide.

Companies have brought their excellence at the show. After four busy days of walking through the aisles of halls and meeting woodworking professionals the show closed on a happy note.  Running from October 15 to 27, 2022 in the halls 22 and 24 of FieraMilano-Rho, the show continued unabated. Satisfaction was tangible from the very start, supported by the desire to restore personal meetings and handshakes, which ultimately translated into positive figures for the exhibition.

The sparkling return of the event XYLEXPO 2022 was attended by over 16000 unique visitors. Also, for the first time this year, the biennial exhibition of wood and furniture technology was held concurrently with the digital communication show and, leveraging a much more effective synergy, with the machine tools exhibition organized by Ucimu. The two events dedicated to manufacturing technology really created a buzz in the industry.

To respond its return to XYLEXPO this year highlights the latest tech advancements, solutions and trends to the woodworking production chains. Satisfaction was also supported by the fact that Xylexpo is probably the only post-pandemic exhibition that has achieved a number of unique visitors in line with the last pre-Covid event in 2018.

“The figures have confirmed not only the role of Xylexpo – said Luigi De Vito, president of the exhibition and Acimall – but also the decisions we made for this edition, aimed at redesigning the layout and focusing on the elements that will be the pillars of future exhibitions: a different strategy in product presentation and a strong focus on new digital services that can only expand the scope and function of an exhibition”.

The show once again celebrated talent and creativity to its core and in its fourth edition, amidst a full house of guests and viewers announced the winners. The award included five categories – solid wood, panels, finishing, digitalisation and sustainability – and required an intensive work for the jury who accurately evaluated all the entries to assign the Xylexpo “Oscar”, a “dwarf” designed in 2014 – when the award was originally introduced – by Elio Fiorucci for Riva 1920.
