Xylexpo is 50 years old

The fair dedicated to woodworking and components for the furniture industry is back

Xylexpo extinguishes the 50 candles with the 2018 edition, which opens in Milan RHO from 8 to 12 May. It is the world biennial dedicated to woodworking technologies and components for the furniture industry.​
The woodworking machinery market enjoys excellent health. Italy holds the second place as a technology producer and in the first six months of 2017 it has exported for a value of 724 million euros. The main buyers of Italian solutions are the United States, followed by Germany and Poland. Germany, on the other hand, maintains the world leaders for exports, with over one billion euros in the first half of 2017 (thus marking a positive growth of 7% compared to the previous year).

This edition of Xylexpo inaugurates with an expanded exhibition area, which goes from 29.189 square meters of the last appointment to 35 thousand square meters today. Many world players in the sector have decided to expand their stands, which is why, with great satisfaction, the organizers have decided to set up a new pavilion this year, number 4.

Xylexpo is the glue to the meeting between technologies and the succession of always innovative processing methods, which require rapid changes in production systems. The needs of companies in the sector are constantly being updated, as technology is becoming faster and faster, and keeping pace is essential to remain competitive.

The exhibition follows a logical sense and a path suitable for the professional visitor. In Halls 1 and 3 there are the product brands, those companies that put on the market machines and tools for panel processing, surface treatment, attached products, hardware, supplies. In pavilions 2 and 4, on the other hand, machines and tools for working the panel and the masses, machines and tools for the first processing, accessories and semi-finished products are in plain sight.

Xylexpo is not only innovation and exposure, it is also quality competition. The XIA-Xylexpo Innovation Awards, which for the third time award exhibitors who propose technical solutions of great innovative value, are back.
