LAMIERA 2022, the international trade show of sheet metal forming machines tools and related technologies, which took place at FieraMilano, Italy from May 18 - 21 2022, ended with a positive outcome.
Promoted by UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, the Italian machine tools, robots and automation systems manufacturers' association, and organised by CEU-CENTRO ESPOSIZIONI UCIMU, LAMIERA returned to the scene after three years as it was postponed for 12 months due to the pandemic.
Indeed, over 19,000 entries were registered at the four exhibition days. Apart from the number of visitors, which was higher than expected, it was the quality of visits that distinguished the audience of operators attending LAMIERA 2022.
Most exhibitors, interviewed at their stands, actually reported the presence of knowledgeable visitors and received visits mainly intended for purchases. Thanks to this result, despite the situation of uncertainty, LAMIERA reasserted itself as the trade fair of reference for the sheet-metal processing sector.
The key players of the exhibition were 365 enterprises, whose stands were set up within two halls - 13 and 15 - covering a total exhibition surface area of over 40,000 square meters.
The presence of qualified foreign operators was ensured also by the 30 delegates of the business mission, involving the incoming of prominent end users and journalists from Brazil, France, India, Poland, Romania, Turkey and the United States. The mission was organised by UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and of International Cooperation and ICE-Italian Trade Agency, which also contributed to creating the area dedicated to start-up companies.
Expressing her views, Barbara Colombo, President, UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, commented, “The exhibition that has just closed really enjoyed the favour of exhibitors, who declared themselves satisfied with the collected contacts and in some cases, even closed important deals directly at the trade show. With these results – added the president of UCIMU - LAMIERA 2022 has actually prepared the ground for the 2023 edition, which we expect will have even higher figures.”
