The green light arrived on the morning of Monday, September 23, when registrations for Eima International 2020 officially opened, through the dedicated online platform. And even in 3 days 620 requests for registration to the event arrived in Bologna from November 11th to 15th 2020. They correspond to about one third of the total exhibition area. "The smoke screen raised by Sima in Paris - commented the leaders of FederUnacoma - did not confuse the industries in the sector".
Of the 620 signed applications, 120 come from abroad, with a demand for exhibition spaces of around 60 thousand square meters.
A powerful signal of the interest that this review arouses in the industries of the sector, worried about securing a space inside an event that records in these years a number of requests higher than the capacity of the entire fairgrounds.
In the last edition (November 2018) the participating industries were 1,950, for a net exhibition area of 150 thousand square meters (350 thousand gross), a quota that could be reached quickly, if in just two days more than one third of the entire space.
"The curtain held up by Sima, the Paris show that tried to compete with EIMA with a change of dates and a very vague and visionary recovery project - commented the leaders of FederUnacoma - did not confuse the industry , which implement concrete technological innovations and operate on real markets ”. "FederUnacoma and EIMA are now stronger than ever - the show's managers added - and motivated to offer their exhibitors a highly professional exhibition and important business opportunities".
"We start from real and certified technical data, first of all the 318 thousand visitors of the last edition - they conclude - to realize a really extraordinary next edition".
