The BI-MU and Xylexpo exhibitions will start from 12-15 Oct 2022 at the Rho-fieramilano expo centre. 33.BI-MU is an exhibition of machine tools, robotics and automation systems, additive manufacturing, digital and auxiliary technologies, and Xylexpo is an exhibition of woodworking technology and components for the furniture industry.

Held alongside BI-MU and Xylexpo is Viscom Italia, a visual communication trade fair.

The organisers’ decision to coordinate the overlap all three events aims to give participants the chance to grab all the opportunities available, while giving visitors the possibility to participate simultaneously.

“We are living in a period of great transformation where it is necessary to be a bit more daring and strive to make new choices,” said Dario Corbetta, director of Xylexpo.

“The upcoming exhibition highlights the will of the entire wood and derivative technology protagonists to experience a new way to come together, seizing all the opportunities of a new age where production processes are becoming increasingly transversal and the search for solutions can be extended into neighbouring worlds.

“This also applies to digital printing, currently an ever increasing new trend in furniture and surface finishings.”

Riccardo Gaslini, head of the organising secretariat of BI-MU, organised by the Efim-ente Fiere Italiane Macchine (EFIM), concluded: “BI-MU and Xylexpo have been working together for two years now to offer both event participants a comprehensive and rewarding visiting experience. This is why we coordinated the total permeability of the two instrumental mechanics exhibitions.

“Joined by Viscom Italia, it will certainly help attract greater visitor numbers, benefiting everybody participating at the fair. As trade fair organisers, we are highly aware that the overlapping events will help make the district more lively and vibrant, and a big plus thanks to the enhanced services provided by Rho-fieramilano to meet the needs of the larger number of operators in each of the halls.”
