Milan, March 13th 2019 - MADE expo, the most important event in Italy for the world of construction and architecture opened today at 10 a.m. at the Milano-Rho Fiera and will continue until Saturday March 16th (open to the general public)
This is why the event is a particularly positive opportunity in contributing to the recovery of a sector that represents 9% of GDP in terms of investments and which contributes to the growth of Italian wealth by half a percentage point of GDP per year (Ance data).
At the centre of the debate is the urgent need to unblock the resources for relaunching construction sites that could boost not only the sector but the entire national economy. Putting a planned €25 billion into circulation would generate a growth of 1% of GDP, according to MADE expo estimates.

The event is divided into four specialized Halls (MADE Construction and Materials, MADE Cladding, Fixtures and Fittings, MADE Interiors and Finishes and MADE Software, Technologies and Services) spread over eight pavilions and offering a highly concentrated technical and cultural training programme with more of 100 events.
The themes selected demonstrate the sector’s willingness to undertake a process of change in order to give a boost to the economic system.

At the opening ceremony leading institutional figures such as Michele Geraci, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Economic Development, Lombardy Region President Attilio Fontana and Mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala expressed their support and interest in MADE expo as a potential driving force for boosting both the Lombard economy and that of the country as a whole.
The synergy between related sectors was successful, offering an integrated and innovative vision of solutions to address the energy and digital transi ...Read more
