The Board of Cepra-Centro promozionale Acimall, organizers of Xylexpo, speaking through its president Lorenzo Primultini, officially canceled the 2020 show on July 6, 2020.
Initially scheduled for late May in Milan, Italy, Xylexpo was first postponed to November 2020, but organizers do not see a way conditions will be favorable at that time for a large-scale event with visitors from around the world. Primultini’s letter says, “With its global scope and more than one out of three exhibitors and visitors coming from abroad, Xylexpo has an international soul and vocation that would be seriously jeopardized by sanitary and economic conditions that are still unsolved in many world regions.”
With a postponement to 2022, organizers are already working to design an Xylexpo event that takes into account new ideas and recent changes to create a new and more modern “digital oriented” showcase, deploying a strategy that will be supported with proposals and initiatives in the coming months.
