Great Success for 30.BI-MU/SFORTEC INDUSTRY

Saturday, 8 October, was the closing day of 30.BI-MU/SFORTEC INDUSTRY, the biennial exhibition of machine tools, robotics, automation, auxiliary technologies, subcontracting and services for the industry, which in the 4 halls (9, 11, 13, 15) of fieramilano Rho, presented the product ranges of 1,076 enterprises, 41% of which were from abroad, representing 33 countries and exhibiting on a total area of 90,000 square metres.

The outcome

The outcome of the trade fair, promoted by UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, is definitely positive, as evidenced by the entrance data: the event totalled 62,576 visits. Among these, 59,554 were from sector professionals, 6% more in comparison with those recorded in the previous edition. 3,022 students were registered versus 5,714 of the 2014 edition, because schools were admitted only by invitation and according to the programme of the initiative PIANETA GIOVANI (PLANET OF THE YOUNG), which enabled the registered classes to go on a guided tour in the halls.

Foreign operators’ visits

The total number of sector professionals' visits includes 2,418 entries of foreign operators coming from 75 countries. The figure was 17% higher compared with that recorded in the previous edition of BI-MU. The increase was certainly contributed by the initiative organised by UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, the Ministry of Economic Development and Ice-Italian Trade Agency, which involved about twenty foreign delegations, for a total of about 200 operators, invited to visit the biennial machine tool exhibition. Over 2,000 meetings were arranged at the stands among operators and exhibitors.

News

Beyond these very satisfactory data, 30.BI-MU/SFORTEC INDUSTRY will be remembered for its prestige and comprehensive presentation of solutions on show. Besides the traditional, international product offering of machine tools, robots, automation and auxiliary technologies, BI-MU actually proposed an unprecedented travel through additive technologies, Industry 4.0, fluid-power systems and mechatronics. These technologies were shown in the innovation areas: Additive in Manufacturing, Fluid Power, Focus on Mechatronics, The World of Surface Finish and SFORTEC INDUSTRY accompanying the traditional trade fair. Promoted by UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, CIS-Interassociative Subcontracting Committee, and Anfia, Italian Association of the Automotive Industry and in cooperation with CDO-Compagnia delle Opere, SFORTEC INDUSTRY took place from Thursday to Saturday, offering a new interpretation of the technical subcontracting and services' exhibition.

Program and initiatives

A comprehensive and varied list of workshops and meetings was proposed in the programme of Quality Bridge: 12 sessions, scheduled over the 5 exhibition days and involving 660 operators. The initiative of PLANET OF THE YOUNG was also particularly appreciated: it allowed the registered schools to visit the trade show, accompanied by young tutors illustrating the exhibited technologies. Over one hundred journalists registered in the press room and collected information, insights, evidences and also direct interviews at the stands of the exhibitors who, in this edition of BI-MU, took advantage of many (over 50, free or paid) new promotional initiatives and services.

Report the event

An accurate report about the exhibition, the events and the exhibited technologies was provided by TG 30.BI-MU, the newscast with two daily editions, developed by Tecnologie Meccaniche and broadcast at the show and through the websites bimu.it, techmec.it and ilsussidiario.net, partner of the initiative. Conceived with the purpose of encouraging the contact among exhibitors, foreign operators and journalists, the International Networking Event was organised in the Service Centre of fieramilano Rho and attended by over 500 people. Music, informal dinner and many contacts have been the ingredients of this night event, appreciated by Italian and foreign guests.
