Eima's organizational machine works to ensure health care and safety standards at the highest level. To date, approximately 1,600 companies have confirmed their participation and intend to contribute in a vigilant and responsible way to the success of the exhibition. In a trade fair context that sees confirmed, in the months of September, October and November alone, over 25 major exhibitions in the major Italian exhibition centers, the Covid emergency is manageable and must not lead companies to give up.
«Health is a value for everyone and it is not an important issue only for some. The exhibition industry, which by its nature expresses shared interests, is demonstrating this in a concrete way ".
This is the message that FederUnacoma, the Federation of agricultural machinery manufacturers organizing Eima International, intends to launch in view of the 44th edition of the great agro-mechanics event, scheduled for 3 to 7 February next in the Bologna exhibition center.
"Companies that choose not to participate in Eima for reasons related to the health emergency act in full legitimacy - explains the President of FederUnacoma Alessandro Malavolti - but they must take care not to emphasize, in terms of communication, the health risk, because sensitivity towards the issue of health is shown not only by deserting an event, but also by participating in it safely ».
FederUnacoma staff, the offices of BolognaFiere, the health authorities of the Emilia Romagna Region, and the approximately 1,600 exhibiting industries that to date have formalized their presence at Eima International 2021 - underlines the Federation - are in fact aiming at the same goal, that of create a fair that has the best prevention systems and that allows visitors and exhibitors to work without taking risks.
"This commitment, which everyone is pursuing with rigor and a sense of responsibility, deserves respect - adds the President of FederUnacoma - and must not be diminished by those who believe that the best way to deal with the emergency is to desert the event".
"Beyond the concern expressed by individual companies - adds the General Manager of FederUnacoma, Simona Rapastella - the trade fair system is in full swing and operates on the basis of the rules established by the Government and the health authorities". The reviews scheduled in Milan, Florence and Parma in September (about ten exhibitions from MICAM, at the Salone del Camper up to the fashion week) took place in a regular and orderly manner - FederUnacoma underlines - and all the reviews scheduled for October and November in the exhibition districts of Milan, Genoa, Bologna, Parma, Cremona, Verona and others (about fifteen other events from the Boat Show to SANA and SAIE) are confirmed, and equipped to take place in safe conditions and maximum usefulness for exhibiting companies.
"EIMA International, which will take place in February 2021, that is to say in five months - concludes Rapastella - is proceeding in a pragmatic way, making use of the experience that the fairgrounds are gaining in this autumn season, to guarantee health standards of the highest level, to the advantage of the many companies and operators who believe in it and who will be protagonists ».
