Here comes Xylexpo, at last! After a four-year-long wait, the biennial international exhibition of technology for the wood and furniture industry is back at FieraMilano-Rho from 12 to 15 October, concurrently with 33.BI-MU and Viscom Italia. Halls 22 and 24 of the Milan fairgrounds, covering more than 36 thousand square meters, will host 280 exhibitors, one third from abroad, presenting a comprehensive review of the most advanced technology, from primary operation to surface finishing.
The exhibition is back after a long period of doubts and uncertainty, although it is now clear that exhibitions, offering the opportunity to meet in person, is by far the favorite option. "This year, we preferred to avoid dispersion, doing our best to place all exhibitors in two halls, avoiding “appendixes” that are less appealing to visitors", said Dario Corbetta, exhibition manager. “We considered that this Xylexpo would be different from the past, for the reasons we all know, and we made decisions to support the quality of the event rather than the sales of exhibition area. As a result, we have a long waiting list of companies that – having delayed their decision to participate for too long – will not be able to join us.”
