A new, big exhibition concept dedicated to manufacturing technology will be launched at FieraMilano-Rho from 12 to 15 October 2022, resulting from a partnership between BI-MU and Xylexpo, respectively organized by Ucimu-Sistemi per produrre - the association of Italian manufacturers of machine tools, robots and automation - and Acimall, the association of Italian woodworking machinery manufacturers. In times of unprecedented challenges, also for exhibitions, the two events will offer a new scenario where operators will have the opportunity to find expertise, solutions and ideas for a common goal: producing with more and more sustainable and efficient methods, according to Industry 4.0 principles.
“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.
