Next Xylepo will be in 2022
July 13, 2020 | 9:45 am CDT

The Board of Cepra-Centro promozionale Acimall announced that it is impossible to organize Xylexpo in 2020, and set the next date for exhibitors and visitors in 2022.

Xylexpo was originally planned for May 2020, and then was rescheduled to November 10-13, 2020.

Cepra communicated the non-existence of objective conditions to organize the 2020 edition of Xylexpo, Biennial world exhibition for woodworking technology and furniture supplies, with an official letter to all exhibitors signed by President Lorenzo Primultini on July 6, 2020.

"Postponing the exhibition to November 2020, Primultini's letter states, seemed the best possible solution, but the efforts of our organization in recent months and the constant monitoring of all the conditions required to offer a successful exhibition have clearly shown that the situation in November will not be favorable, yet.

“With its global scope and more than one out of three exhibitors and visitors coming from abroad, Xylexpo has an international soul and vocation that would be seriously jeopardized by sanitary and economic conditions that are still unsolved in many world regions.”

So, the date with Xylexpo is postponed to 2022. The exhibition team is already working to design a Xylexpo event that takes into account new ideas and recent changes to create a new and more modern “digital oriented” showcase, deploying a strategy that will be supported with proposals and initiatives in the coming months.
