SICAM, the international exhibition of components, semi-finished products and accessories for the furniture industry, closed with over 16,000 visitors in the four opening days, says the organiser. This response, thanks to the high quality of the visitors, more than satisfied the expectations of the exhibitors.
The distinguishing element of this SICAM edition was the substantial number of international trade visitors – coming from 94 countries of the five continents – confirming the same quality of presence as last year.
The organiser of the event, Carlo Giobbi, declares: “SICAM affirmed its importance in the international markets, especially regards to the emerging countries to which we pay every year a close attention.”
With 35% of the visitors coming from abroad, SICAM continues to be a very good event for the Italian furniture industry: “From a glance at the registration files and from what exhibitors had to say,” continues Carlo, “we can affirm that all the most important companies, visited the exhibition in these opening days. No doubt, SICAM is the fundamental event to monitor and control the national market which remains one of the most important of all for the furnishing branch.
“The reduction of visits, still confirmed to only 6%, can be explained on one hand by the decrease of companies in the market compared to last year, and on the other hand with the cutback of the staff visiting the fair for each company.”
