The biennial international exhibition has decided to squeeze its calendar from five to four days. From the next edition – scheduled from Tuesday 26 to Friday 29, May 2020, at FieraMilano-Rho – Xylexpo will last shorter: the decision was taken unanimously by the managing board of Cepra, the operating arm of exhibition owner Acimall, at the meeting held on October 10.
The climate of recent times, characterized by a consistent improvement of all indicators, could not last forever. So, here we are, packing up for the summer break, with some hints and reflections… starting from the first trend emerging in the second quarter of this year, namely the widespread slowdown of orders. The traditional quarterly survey by Acimall, the Confindustria member association, reveals a 9.9 percent decrease compared to the same period of 2017.
In the April-June 2017, orders for Italian woodworking technologies recorded 31.9% growth rates, compared to the same period of 2016 (previous quarter growth was 22.2%), reported Italian woodworking machinery and tools manufacturers’ association Acimall.
2016 closed with a positive sign: this is the final result of a 12-month period characterized by a clearly positive trend of technology, equipment and tools for wood and wood-based materials. As we wait for final figures, the Studies Office of Acimall – the Confindustria member association that represents the companies of this excellent “made in Italy” sector – estimates that production in 2016 amounted to 2,078 million
The woodworking technology and wood-based materials industry keeps showing encouraging trends: preliminary figures for the current year speak for themselves, showing a fully positive sign for all major indexes. The analysis carried out by the Studies office of the Confindustria-member association ACIMALL, gathering the industry's leading companies provides a brighter picture than many were expecting.
ACIMALL Press Office, Assago, November 19, 2015: “We really feel that the next Xylexpo will be an essential stage in the success story of our exhibition:we are doing all we can to create a big event, an excellent review of innovative technology featuring all the leading actors of this industry.And I am proud to say that all Italian companies will be there!”.
