MECSPE’s 19th edition will take place from 23 to 25 November at BolognaFiere for the first time. Italy’s main event dedicated to innovative technologies for the manufacturing industry returns after a rather complicated year, looking towards the future with optimism.
According to the MECSPE Observatory data for the second quarter of 2021, over 7 companies out of 10 (74%) believe that the sector will boom in the next 3 years, and 69% of companies think they will end the year with a positive sign. Even Istat – the Italian National Institute of Statistics – has recorded increased confidence among companies, which has reached the highest level in July. Moreover, this optimism is increasing and is leading companies to look ahead. The future is also the key concept of Senaf’s event, which will focus on three major elements for Italy’s manufacturing sector: digitisation, sustainability, and training.
The first MECSPE edition in Bologna will involve more than 1,800 exhibitors. Its 92,000 sq.m exhibition surface includes 18 halls and 13 rooms. Moreover, the programme will include 46 special events and conferences. The event, including the innovative exhibition part, demonstrative units and processing islands, will focus on manufacturing technologies and industrial supply chains.
