MADE expo IS DRIVING A NEW BEGINNING FOR THE BUILDING INDUSTRY
Overseas visitors and business contacts have soared. The figures say it all: 208,302 total visitors, 65,000 net sqm of display space sold, over 1,100 b2b meetings, 1,450 exhibitors.
The best way to sum up both the success of MADE expo 2015 and the expectations for a sector definitely starting to see a glimmer of recovery, is to look at the figures and the business opportunities generated by the show. With over 208,000 visitors and 1,450 exhibitors (including 279 from overseas) whose belief in MADE expo has never wavered, the show has played a key role in breathing new life into a sector of crucial importance for the global economy. In spite of the decrease in Russian and Ukrainian visitors, the show still attracted 36,103 trade operators from all over the world.
“Our focus on delivering a top quality event and fostering the best ever business opportunities has turned out to be a winning strategy,” explains Giovanni De Ponti, CEO of MADE Eventi, “as confirmed by the countless exhibitors who did some fantastic deals at the show. As well, many made good use of the International Business Lounge, which hosted 1,100 B2B meetings between exhibitors and delegates from 24 countries, leading to major supply contracts, and outshining the already marvellous results achieved at the last event”.
The spotlight was on driving business success, of course, but also on education, with workshops and seminars awarding continuing education credits. The Build Smart!
areas attracted a throng of 9,000 professionals
, all eager to learn more about the latest in innovation and sustainability. The Building the Expo
exhibition provided exciting previews of Milan’s upcoming Expo 2015 pavilions and was the show's biggest drawcard, more than living up to expectations. Audiences lapped up top-notch presentations by 15 of the world’s leading architecture firms, with some promising contacts being made between presenters and exhibitors.
“The MADE4Contract Hotel and MADE4Retail meetings, and the Building Envelope and Windows Forum were all extremely well attended. Participants were offered valuable insights into the hospitality and distribution sectors, as well as into the latest in windows and doors, during the packed four-day programme”,
said Andrea Negri
, Chairman of MADE expo.
The four-day event is more than an ordinary trade show: it is a wellspring of educational and business opportunities and the go-to place for cutting edge innovation. MADE expo attracts significant investments by manufacturers and businesses keen to put their best foot forward with superb display booths and trail blazing product offerings. The exhibitors demonstrated their confidence in an event that attracts buyers from every corner of the world, thanks also to the support of the Italian Foreign Trade Agency (I.C.E.) and a well-targeted and highly efficient international marketing and advertising effort.
The decision to welcome non-trade visitors to the show on the last day was also spot on: thousands of people grasped the chance to tour the gigantic showroom and check out the latest ideas for upgrading their homes with superb quality products, and also better understand the ins and outs of Italy's tax benefits for home renovations and energy savings thanks to meetings with experts that trade and non-trade audiences were invited to attend.
“We are extremely pleased with the 2015 show”, stresses De Ponti, “but we’re already thinking ahead: over the coming months we’ll be putting together some very important business initiatives in Italy and abroad, in preparation for the March 2017 edition of MADE expo”.

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.

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

The Big 5 is the largest trade exhibition and the most significant event of the construction industry in the Middle East and it is held annually at the Dubai World Trade Center in the UAE. It represents a business platform and opportunity for over 2500 exhibitors and is usually visited by more than 60,000 professional visitors from all over the world.
MADE expo has participated with its own stand at the BIG 5 in order to promote the participation of professionals and companies involved in the Gulf in the new edition of MADE 2015 that will take place at the Fiera Milano Rho, with a brand new date:18_21 March, just before the beginning of the World Expo 2015.
A lot of exhibitors and professional visitors, attending our stand at the BIG 5, have shown great interest in the key points of MADE expo.
MADE expo is more and more international and represents one of the most important european platforms for making business worldwide.
25 November 2013
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

“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 expo – and 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.
