Xylexpo 2020 postponed until later in the year

9 March 2020

The Board of Acimall, the association of Italian woodworking machinery and tools manufacturers, owner of the biennial exhibition, have taken the decision to postpone the 2020 event due to the continuing coronavirus emergency in Italy.

The 2020 event will now be postponed until the second half of this year, exact dates yet to be decided, in view of the ongoing disruption of trade fair events and developments of the Covid-19 issue.

“We waited as long as we could, hoping the situation would go back to normal," said Lorenzo Primultini, president of Acimall and of the exhibition. “We hope that, by the end of May, the Coronavirus effects will not be what we are seeing now, but unfortunately we cannot tell when this emergency will be over on a global scale, and most of all, we cannot predict its impact on the industrial system and on the supply chains of the wood and furniture technology industry”.
