FIMMA to double space with latest innovations in machinery and technology

FIMMA + Maderalia

The International Fair for Machinery for the Furniture-making and Wood Sectors (FIMMA), one of the sections of FIMMA + Maderalia, is set to be the major feature of the upcoming edition of this biennial fair, which runs from 14-17 May 2024 at Feria Valencia.

The organisers announced that the area dedicated specifically to machinery, technology and solutions for the wood, furniture-making and wood construction sectors is poised to be twice the size it was last time, occupying 24,000m2 of exhibition space.

Added to the 36,000m2 set aside for Maderalia, the total exhibition area is expected to be around 60,000m2.

The positive response from the leading manufacturers of machinery for the industry, both Spanish and international, has driven this growth.

The organisers also confirmed that the foremost players in this segment of the market will be present, both the principal Iberian operators and the leading international companies that are driving forces in Europe.

The companies from these sectors will be spread across the two halls housing the FIMMA offering: Halls 1 and 2 on Level 2 at Feria Valencia.

As well as the technology and machinery on show, both halls will feature demonstration areas such as the ‘Carpenters Workshop’, which will recreate how a carpentry production line works, live. A series of demonstrations of construction with wood is also scheduled to take place.

Maderalia, for its part, will occupy the whole of Halls 1, 2, 3 and 4 on Level 3 at Feria Valencia.

The outlook is “very good”, according to FIMMA organising committee chairman, Santiago Riera: “The sector is really keen to show all the new products and technological solutions that have burst into our catalogues on the one hand, and, on the other, the rise of sectors such as contract projects and construction with wood is driving the market and, therefore, industry professionals’ capacity to modernise their lines of work and their products.”
