Xylexpo 2016 organizers expect successful expo

leave a comment »

Nearly 300 exhibitors have registered for the biennial furniture exhibition, Xylexpo.

Xylexpo 2016, the biennial international furniture and woodworking expo will be held May 24-28 at FieraMilano-Rho in Milan. So far, almost 300 exhibitors have registered with a 22 percent share of international companies.

“We expect at least 500 exhibitors, largely above the 440 result of 2014, while the exhibition area will be much wider than the 26, 176 square meters we covered two years ago,” said Lorenzo Primultini, president of the exhibition. “We are even more optimistic on the visitor side: in 2014 we recorded more than 44,000 accesses in five days, corresponding to 15,250 ‘unique visitors’ this year. Everything seems to suggest that we will do even better.”

“Our optimism is supported by several factors,” Primultini added. “First of all, our exhibition will represent the entire industry. All the leading actors of the industry will be in Milan, with no exception, and this is a major achievement, especially for our industry that in Milan − one of its traditional global capitals − will find all those who offer technology and innovation, make research and work to find new solutions to new problems, day after day. I am not referring only to big groups, to the fact that Barberan, Biesse, Cefla, Homag, Ima, Scm and Weinig are finally back to Milan, all together, but also to so many small and medium businesses from all over the world, which have been able to overcome these tough years with their innovative strength, their capacity to find creative solutions.”

Interzum exhibitor numbers up 10 percent from two years ago

leave a comment »

With nine months to go before Interzum, show management reports that exhibitor numbers are up 10 percent compared with two years ago. Among the first-time exhibitors will be companies from countries that have never participated at this event in past years. Based on the positive responses from exhibitors, the Interzum Show Director Matthias Pollmann is expecting an exciting, growth-oriented event confirming Interzum’s status as the world’s leading furnishing supply event.

Interzum will take place from May 5-8, 2015, in Cologne, Germany. With nine months to go, Koelnmesse has already received 678 exhibitor applications, an increase of 10 percent compared with two years ago when 612 were registered at that time.

“This time around, exhbitors tend to sign up earlier, not only to lock in the discounted rates but also to leave enough time for planning the ideal conceptual approach to our event,“ said Matthias Pollmann, show director at Interzum

According to Pullman, Interzum continues to be on an expansion course. Of the total 760,000 square feet, 639,000 have been sold. The increase doesn’t come to him as a surprise.

“Based on the feedback we received right after Interzum in 2013, we knew that 81 percent of the exhibitors were committed to exhibit at the 2015 edition of our event again,“ Pollmann said.

Among the newcomers to Interzum will be Tesa, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of self-adhesive products and system solutions. Also back at Interzum will be the German Adhesive manufacturer Jowat AG.

Interzum is also attracting exhibitors from far-away regions. This tim,e a group of Colombian companies will be among the first timers. Overall, show management expects to increase the number of international exhibitors and attendees again. The last event attracted 1,512 exhibitors from 62 countries who met with 53,000 attendees from 148 countries. Attendees are suppliers to the furniture industry, dealers, architects, interior designers, decorators and facility managers.
