“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”.
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.
This is the decision made by the Board of Directors of Cepra, the operating arm of Acimall, the Italian woodworking technology association, owners of the exhibition. So, the event will move away from the traditional date in May, due to the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic across the entire planet.
“This is going to be a very different edition from those we have been used to, but it will allow the entire supply chain to meet again and look ahead, after missing a key event for wood and furniture technology”, said president Lorenzo Primultini.
Xylexpo 2020 will be postponed. This is the painful but necessary decision taken by the Managing Board of Acimall, the association of Italian woodworking machinery and tools manufacturers, owner of the biennial exhibition.
The International Press Conference for Xylexpo 2020 was held in Milan on February 18, 2018, during the morning, at Enzo Jannacci's Auditorium of Pirelli skyscraper, Milan. Here you find the documentation put at disposal of the journalists who took part at the event:
