With three months to go before the official opening of the 2024 edition, just under 250 exhibitors are registered so far to exhibit in Milan, in Halls 1 and 3 of Fiera Milano Rho, at Xylexpo, the biennial international exhibition of wood and furniture industry technology scheduled next May 21st to 24th. 

Returning to its traditional calendar slot in May, the show will present plants, solutions, products and technology that will provide plenty of international visitors with an upgrade on all process stages, from primary operation to the most innovative finishing.

“Today, more than ever, exhibitions accurately reflect the market health, and Xylexpo definitely offers a clear picture of the current situation of our industry, in Italy and globally,” says Dario Corbetta, exhibition director.

“The record revenues of recent years have long been replaced by an inevitable reduction of orders. This situation was expected, but nevertheless, it caused many companies – despite high revenues supported by outstanding orders – to wait and see, to suspend investments in some activities, exhibitions on top of all. In recent weeks, many companies are reconsidering such decisions, but Xylexpo 2024 will inevitably have a different face.”

At FieraMilano-Rho, many key players of technology will be attending, leveraging the opportunity to be under the spotlight in a challenging landscape, with many visitors expected from Italy and abroad. 

SCM, Felder, Naxing, KDT and several “famous” German and international brands have renovated their trust in an event that, don’t forget, is not just attractive for buyers, importers and international operators, but is located in one of the world’s most important markets for wood and furniture technology, with total demand exceeding one billion euro.
