IT'S TIME TO INVEST!

The message spreading through the Italian construction industry is: "the worst is over, the patient is off the critical list", and "it's time to get our act together and invest"

The Chief Executive Officer of MADE Eventi, Giovanni De Ponti, is looking ahead with confidence. “Demand on the domestic market may still be a tad sluggish, but the good news is that more and more Italians will be renovating and refurbishing their homes in 2014. Another reason I’m optimistic is that bank loans to first time home buyers are picking up again”, adds De Ponti.  

In 2013, 27.8 billion euros went into energy retrofits, and Italians have already spent more than 10 billion in the first four months of this year, according to a survey conducted by Cresme and commissioned by Edilegnoarredo, the FederlegnoArredo member association that groups together manufacturers of products for the construction industry and urban furnishings sector.

ANNOUNCING MADE expo 2015

Over 150 journalists were on hand yesterday at the press conference to announce the next MADE expo show, which is scheduled to take place at the Milan Fairgrounds Rho from 18 to 21 March 2015.

In attendance at the press conference were the Deputy Minister for Economic Development, Carlo Calenda, the Chairman of the General Confederation of Italian Industry (Confindustria), Giorgio Squinzi, the Chairman of Assimpredil Ance (an association that represents construction companies in and around Milan), Claudio De Albertis, and the Italian Government’s Commissioner for Expo 2015, Giuseppe Sala.

Following the success of the 2013 edition (which attracted over 211,000 visitors, including 36,000 from countries other than Italy, up 14% compared to 2012), MADE expo is still looking towards innovation as a driver of its success, along with its biennial schedule, specialization and international reach.

MADE EXPO MOVES TO MARCH.
AS OF 2015 THE SHOW WILL RUN FROM 18 TO 21 MARCH AT THE MILAN FAIRGROUNDS RHO

This year’s MADE expo was a huge success for building construction firms and professionals alike, who clearly welcomed the decision to make the event more specialised, expand its international reach and schedule the show every two years starting from 2013. An impressive 35,619 trade visitors from all over the world were in attendance this year, up 14% compared to 2012 and accounting for 17% of the total 211,105 visitors to MADE expo 2013.

MADE expo has decided to reposition itself on the international trade fair calendar: starting with the 2015 edition, the event will be staged in odd years, in the month of March.

Holding the event in March gives MADE expo a real edge over other building construction shows in Europe, and staging it every two years will arguably rationalise the Italian trade fair offering, giving companies a single event in the first quarter of the year at which to make new product announcements and plan their marketing and sales campaigns accordingly.

The next MADE expo will take place shortly before EXPO 2015, providing valuable insights into the many aspects of sustainability that the universal exposition will not only delve into but also reflect in its architecture and buildings.

MADE expo will actually leverage the EXPO 2015 phenomenon: the venue will be a veritable concentration of the very latest architectural and construction breakthroughs, and excitingly, could offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to arrange professionally guided tours of the site before the official opening date.

Thanks to this decision and the new options now materialising to boost interaction with international markets and operators, MADE expo is continuing to raise its profile as a trade fair and a valuable business ally for architecture and the building industry. As well, 2014 will be a memorable year, featuring a large number of industry specific initiatives to be held primarily abroad. The focus will of course be on MADE expo, the March show that will run in odd years at the Milan Fairgrounds Rho.

See you at MADE expo 2015, from 18 to 21 MARCH at the MILAN FAIRGROUNDS RHO

MADE expo INCREASINGLY MORE INTERNATIONAL: NEW CONTACTS AND MAJOR BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES FOR COMPANIES

“We want a normal country; this was the strong request made by the president of Confindustria Squinzi when he opened MADE expo – says Giovanni De Ponti, Managing Director of MADE expoand it is with this same request that we close our event, though I must say that considering the success achieved, we can look to the future with optimism. During the four event days, companies were able to meet their customers, but above all they made new contacts with the most qualified international operators. Inside the pavilions, we could sense the desire to know more, be informed and become acquainted with the latest technologies, an unmistakable sign of optimism and confidence from visitors and exhibitors, which see MADE expo as a qualified opportunity to do business and a concrete chance of re-launching the industry”.

The sixth MADE expo event was visited by 211,105 people, 35,619 of whom from abroad: a major achievement for the entire construction industry, which sees the appointment as an international benchmark event.
