The 28th edition of Xylexpo, the biennial international exhibition of woodworking and furniture technology, is moving back to May – specifically from 21st-24th May.

Xylexpo has traditionally always been held in May, since its foundation. The pandemic emergency had forced the organisers to choose a different time slot in October, building a different scenario and new partnerships to help exhibitors and visitors go back to business in a successful event.

The challenge was successful, as Xylexpo 2022 was certainly the industry’s most successful event after the Covid storm.

“In harmony with all the most important industry players, we have accurately considered all the alternatives and the role of our exhibition as a primary promotion vehicle. This process has led us to identify the time slot from the 21st to the 24th of May for Xylexpo 2024, for the first time from Tuesday to Friday, a better fit for the current requirements of exhibitors and visitors, especially our international audience,” said Luigi De Vito, president of the exhibition and Acimall, the association of Italian woodworking machinery manufacturers, which owns and organises the event.

“We are defining all the details of the new project, even more focused on multimedia, and we are working to bring all industry players to Milan, offering a one-of-a-kind dynamic event, with plenty of initiatives, that can achieve the best results in terms of culture, promotion and business”.   

The exhibition will be held at Fieramilano-Rho in the east side halls, near the underground station and all the highway, railway and airport connections, to simplify the mobility of Italian and international operators who are expected to attend in high numbers.
