According to tradition, the activity of the Italian association of woodworking technology manufacturers includes different initiatives based on the peculiarities of the destination market. In addition to the official stand, the association organizes Italian pavilions, an appreciated formula that allows exhibiting companies to focus on their business, while relying on the services offered by organizers.

For the third consecutive year, Italian companies will also be supported with an “Import partner search” service, whereby association officials are identifying and selecting local companies to represent Italian technology in their market. Another valuable asset is the partnership with Ice-Italian Foreign Trade Agency, which has always supported Acimall in many promotion activities.

“The calendar is less crowded than in the past – said Dario Corbetta, director of Cepra-Centro promozionale Acimall – but it introduces interesting news. The lower availability of resources for the "made in Italy" promotion system cannot certainly cancel the commitment of Confindustria-member association on the promotion side; on the contrary, it encourages us to design new strategies and to identify new tools to support the globalization of our businesses."

For instance, this is the origin of our decision to adopt an innovative approach to our promotion plan, organizing three market surveys in regions that, in the medium term, might offer interesting opportunities. Acimall’s analysts, therefore, will go to Morocco, Algeria and Cuba to check the potential and the situation of the respective industries.

In 2015 and in early 2016, the Acimall calendar will provide interactions with the preparations for Xylexpo 2016, the biennial exhibition organized by the Italian association, scheduled in Milan from 24 to 28 May 2016.
