Xylexpo, the international showcase of wood and furniture technologies and supplies, takes place from 26-29 May 2020.

The expo is now over five days, from four days previously. This change has been appreciated by the industry, as witnessed by early registrations that have been submitted in advance compared to the past, a sign that the renewed commitment of the biennial exhibition is being recognised. Many industry big players have already sent their application forms: Biesse, Cefla, Homag, Ima, Scm, Weinig, are leading the group of companies that will attend the exhibition in Milan next May.

“We really feel that our determination to reaffirm the exhibition’s role has been readily recognised,” says Lorenzo Primultini, president of Xylexpo. “The decision of many companies to come to Milan bears witness to the effectiveness of an exhibition that we want to focus more and more on the quality of the solutions on display, on the most advanced technologies, on real integrated systems. Xylexpo will showcase the woodworking business and furniture production under a new light, following the momentous change of Industry 4.0.”

After the new calendar and the new logo, the third piece of news is the debut of Focus Components: an area dedicated to supplies, components and semi-finished materials for the furniture industry. “We believe that in Milan, in a totally different setting and in close synergy with technology, this business can find new and different opportunities,” says Primultini.

The new format is a collaboration with MADE Expo, that will contribute not only with their experience and close relationship with architecture and construction players, but also with the common language shared with many companies and big industry players.

The project will revolve around the possibility for exhibitors to have a dedicated area, choosing the most effective option to introduce their products, their strategies and their organisation. “We do not want to run after records or to venture into new territories where we don’t belong, but we want to respond to those who have always appreciated the opportunity to find materials and technologies in one place,” concludes Primultini.
