With 200 registrations for a total exhibition area of 20 thousand square meters, the Xylexpo 2024 event is building momentum. Halls 1 and 3 at the Fieramilano Rho expo centre will showcase present and future technologies, offering thousands of Italian and international visitors the opportunity to update, compare different solutions and plan their investments.
The registration campaign will continue for the next months to expand the exhibition further and respond to all the production needs of the variegated woodworking industry.
“The preparations for the next edition – scheduled at FieraMilano-Rho from 21 to 24 May 2024 – are going on in a season of great turmoil for an industry that, after a “happy” period for orders and revenues, is showing signs of concern, probably exaggerated, about short-to-medium-term perspectives," says Dario Corbetta, exhibition director.
This statement is reflected by Italian market figures for the January-July period – the latest figures published by the Italian statistics institute Istat and processed by Acimall – showing that export has exceeded one billion euro, up by 9 percent from the positive result of 2022.
The United States, Germany and France keep ensuring “sustained” demand, with a global trend that remains basically positive, also confirmed by the growth of Italian import (plus 3.6 percent, for a total value of 156 million euro).
“We believe that Xylexpo, despite the current period of transition, will be once again an opportunity not-to-be-missed for anyone seeking high visibility in the Italian and international market”, Corbetta concludes.
