Sicam 2021: finally we start again in presence

“After 2 years of waiting we finally start again“: with this sentence the organizers of Sicam 2021, the International Exhibition of Components, Semi-finished Products and Accessories for the Furniture Industry, invite sector operators to participate in the fair that will take place from Tuesday 12 to Friday 15 October in Pordenone. Sicam 2021 will be the first international event of the sector in presence.


A strong desire to meet again in person

With the participation of 542 exhibitors, Sicam also promises to be the fair of recovery for the subcontracting sector in the wake of the success of the Milan super-exhibition. In fact, companies have a strong desire to re-establish a direct relationship with operators in the sector, as well as a strong desire to take advantage of this opportunity to present numerous innovations and innovative products that only a trade fair in person can make known and touch.
This confirms the authoritativeness reached by Sicam, international reference point for companies in the subcontracting and furniture sector. The entire exhibition space of the fair was occupied, including pavilion 10, a temporary hall that the organizers wanted to maintain in order to ensure specific security measures, and to be able to offer larger refreshment and service areas.
“The companies in our sector - said Carlo Giobbi, patron of Sicam - continue to focus on product innovation that meets the end user's desires: from surface treatments to opening systems, from innovative materials to their inalterability over time, and then finishes, colors, in a word design.“


Sicam 2021, a safe fair

The organizers guarantee a “Covid-free“ appointment, in full compliance with national and regional regulations. For this reason it is only possible to register online, it is compulsory to print the entry card and have a valid Green Pass (EU Digital Covid Pass or equivalent for non-EU citizens).
In spite of the international restrictions due to the pandemic, many foreign visitors are expected to arrive interested in seeing the novelties of the most important companies in the subcontracting sector, also in view of the recovery of the furniture sector and the great Saloni del mobile planned for 2022.
