       “Once again, Xylexpo has proved to be a faithful mirror of the market!”. No doubt for Dario Corbetta, director of the international biennial exhibition of technology for the furniture and wood industry, scheduled at FieraMilano-Rho next October 12 to 15.        “It is going to be a rich edition – Corbetta continued – a big comeback in the exhibition calendar after four years, due to the global sanitary emergency. We believe that the event will provide a comprehensive display of the best industry technology, addressing an audience that will finally be able to meet in Milan in person."        Based on daily feedback from the exhibitors, the next edition will be a real “new start”; with strong enthusiasm that seems unaffected by the troubles that the world is still facing. Six months before the official opening, we can announce that halls 22 and 24, assigned to the 2022 edition, are almost sold out.        So far, more than 220 exhibitors have finalized their registration to the Milan exhibition, for a total exhibition area close to 34 thousand square meters.        It's going to be an end-to-end showcase where industry operators can "experience" all the technology for the value chain: from primary operation to solid wood processing, from panel machines to finishing, from tools to equipment.        As you know, Xylexpo will be held concurrently with 33.BI-MU, the biennial exhibition of machine tools, robotics and automation. This partnership will result into a “mechanical engineering week” where exhibitors and visitors can meet to find expertise, solutions and ideas with one clear goal: producing with a more and more sustainable and efficient approach.
