“We have never seen so much automation and so many advanced systems in any other exhibition around the world!”.

This was a recurring statement in the aisles of Xylexpo, the biennial international exhibition of technology and systems for the wood and furniture industry, held at FieraMilano-Rho last May 8 to 12. In terms of contents, the event has kept its promise: plenty of technology for secondary operation industries, from panels to solid wood; the best offer of furniture manufacturing systems; and the most advanced “Industry X.0” solutions.
The exhibition has been rewarded by a substantial flow of industry visitors, with 17,781 operators, 2.1 percent more than the previous edition. Among them, 5,032 came from abroad, 28.3 percent of total attendance, basically in line with 2016.
Of course, good results for Italy, with 12,749 industry professionals, up by 3.3 percent from the previous edition, accounting for 71.7 percent of total attendance.
