Visitors, exhibitors and square meters increase. Foreign exhibitors (+ 35.4%) and international visitors (+ 16.1%) are growing strongly
Milan, 12 June 2018 – Venditalia 2018 ended with a growth of exhibitors, visitors and above all international presences. The 2018 edition of the event, held at fieramilanocity from 6 to 9 June and organized every two years by Venditalia Servizi and promoted by CONFIDA, the Italian Association of Automatic Distribution, has been characterized by a significant increase in all its figures. Starting from that of the exhibitors. In fact, over 300 were the companies present (+ 20% compared to 2016) in an area of 32,000 square meters with a surface area occupied by 14,000 square meters of exhibition stands. Visitors also increased to almost 20,000 units during the 4 days of the exhibition (+ 4% compared to the 2016 edition).
The most important figure of the 2018 edition is the strong growth of both exhibitors and international visitors who register a real record: as many as 79 companies (+ 35.4% compared to 2016) from 22 countries (including France, Spain, Germany, England, Holland but also China, Russia and USA) and over 4 thousand foreign visitors (+ 16.1% compared to 2016).
“It was a great success– Mr. Ernesto Piloni, President of Venditalia, says - the event has confirmed all expectations, even exceeding them with record numbers. The 2018 edition marked an important milestone: turning Venditalia into a leading international exhibition. Among other things, Venditalia has turned 20 years this year and we are very happy to be able to celebrate this anniversary with a truly exceptional edition. My thanks also to all the exhibitors present because I saw a very high quality. All of them have significantly increased the care and refinement of the stands and the quality of their offer, thus contributing significantly to the success of the event, which has a more and more international dimension, as witnessed by the records registered by exhibitors and foreign visitors".
“The success of Venditalia confirms the leadership of our Country at international level in the field of automatic distribution – Mr. Massimo Trapletti, President of Confida, says – our event remains the most reliable thermometer on the market and of a sector that generates over 1.8-billion Euro of turnover with 5 billion consumed products supplied. Venditalia is an unmissable event for all the professionals who at the fair have the opportunity to meet buyers from all over the world to get a preview of the new market trends but above all to establish or consolidate business relationships, thus finalizing the commercial strategies launched".
However, it is not just the numbers that make Venditalia the most important event in the field of automatic distribution at an international level. The contents of the event are just as important. Through 16 events in 3 days between workshops, training conferences and presentations attended by over 800 people, in fact, we have dealt with topical issues for vending: from technology 4.0 to the tax relief of hyper-depreciation at 250% also to vending machines; from sustainability to the cashless payment methods for vending machines.
Venditalia waits for you at the next edition that will take place in 2020.
