At just 97 days from the opening of Made in Steel Conference & Exhibition, southern Europe’s premier tradeshow for the steel industry that will take place from 17th to 19th May in the Fiera Milano exhibition centre, 90% of the 40,000 square meters of gross exhibition space have been sold. Last edition’s trend has been confirmed with more than 20% foreign exhibitors. Moreover, this year, for the first time, there will be a strong presence of Turkish exhibitors, marking a historical record for Made in Steel. At present, 17 different countries will be represented, including India and Saudi Arabia, as well many EU and non-EU countries.
This sales percentage shows a net increase with respect to the exhibition space sold in the same period in 2015 for the 6th edition which in turn showed a 16% increase in the sale of exhibition space vs the 2013 edition, +25% of the sales revenue and +5% exhibiting companies. Visitor participation also experienced an increase of 17% with a count of well over 13,000 professional visitors, 22% of which were from 68 nations. Therefore, the first impression are very promising: 50% of the exhibition space was sold in only two months after the opening of registrations, thus predicting that this upcoming seventh edition of Made in Steel Conference and Exhibition is already a record edition.
