Xylexpo 2022: starting point of a new cycle of innovation
From 12 to 15 October 2022 in the pavilions of Rho Fieramilano will take place Xylexpo, the biennial world of woodworking technologies and components for the furniture industry, promoted by Acimall, the association of Italian manufacturers of woodworking machines and tools, and organized by CEPRA.


Xylexpo changes the period of development

Since 1968, an important exhibition for operators in the sector, Xylexpo offers a broad and comprehensive view on technologies for processing wood and its derivatives, best interpreting the evolution of the sector through its many facets.

Able to continuously renew contents and services, from this edition Xylexpo changes the period of development, moving from spring to autumn to better intercept the investment needs of visitors who, in the post-pandemic, "find" a profound exhibition calendar changed.


At Xylexpo a preview of the technological innovations of the companies

With this choice, Xylexpo will be the starting point of the innovation cycle that will characterize the next two years, establishing itself as the ideal stage to preview the technological innovations developed by the companies, at the best time to collect the purchase intentions of users, always very high in the final part of the year.

Recognized as the world fair for the most advanced technology for woodworking, the event will take place in parallel with BI-MU, an international biennial dedicated to the world of machine tools for metalworking, robots, automation, additive and auxiliary technologies.


A fair different from the others

The evolution that characterizes the wood-furniture sector, among the most attentive to the search for the right balance between beauty and functionality, owes a great deal to the industry of machines and production technologies, as well as to that of components, the latest generation of equipment and materials.

True forges of experimentation capable of giving shape, color and concrete interpretation to the ideas of their customers, the leading companies in the sector have always had their point of reference in Xylexpo, making it the event capable of expressing ideas and innovations for all production needs at an international level.
