“We are taking part in this fair with great enthusiasm, both because we are well acquainted with the excellent organizational skills with which our partner Hannover Messe manages this type of event, and due to our focus on this geographical area," said Federico Broccoli, chairman, Wood Division/sales director and Subsidiaries Division director at Biesse.

"Indeed, in 2017, the Mexican market has once again been providing us with very positive signals, which have translated into an increase in orders over the previous year, benefiting from the recovery in North America. In fact, the boost received from the U.S. has enabled Mexico to record significant growth and we are confident that this market still has an enormous amount of potential to express,” Broccoli added.

The trade show consists of two parallel exhibitions: Magna Expo Mueblera Industrial and Magna Expo Mobiliario e Interiores. Magna Expo Mueblera Industrial covers machinery, tools and solutions for woodworking and wood processing, while Magna Expo Mobiliario e Interiores spotlights end products: furniture, interior decorating, household appliances and floor coverings.

Among the highlights at the show will be conference programs on CNC machines, integrated manufacturing and the latest furniture designs and trends. Also featured will be brief presentations by: Altendorf General Manager Joerg F. Mayer; Jürgen Köppel, CEO at Leitz and president of European woodworking association Eumabois; and Ingo Bathe from imos AG.

The 2017 Magna Expo Mueblera featured more than 200 exhibitors spread across 323,000 square feet of space.
