The 2018 edition of Xylexpo is going to be a milestone in the 50-year success story of the event: the area has been virtually sold out for a few weeks now and, with the addition of a fourth hall, the exhibition will get 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 – the biennial international exhibition of woodworking and furniture industry technology to be held at FieraMilano-Rho from Tuesday 8 to Saturday 12 May, 2018 – seems to have found its dimension for many reasons: there will be all the big actors of a technological sector that is going through a period of deep transformation. We are 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 you will find 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.
