EMO Milano 2021, taking place from October 4-9, will mark the enterprises’ return to “normalacy."
Promoted by CECIMO, the European Association of Machine Tool Industries, the trade show is organized by the operational structures of UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, which, over the last weeks, have been engaged in managing the procedures for the exhibitors’ applications and in carrying on all the promotional campaign.
The official communication signed by the general commissioner, Luigi Galdabini, announced two important changes: the first one is related to the extension of the applicability period with regard to the Early-Bird discount, postponed from December 1 to February 14, 2021. The second change concerns the penalties, which will be reduced. Actually, there will be the possibility of cancelling one’s participation as exhibitor in the trade show by March 31, 2021, losing only the security deposit, without the obligation of paying also the entire fee as a penalty - as it had been previously established.
Alfredo Mariotti, general manager of UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE pointed out: “The historical period we all are experiencing makes a company activity complicated. Complicated, but not impossible, if we consider the trend with regard to the collection of exhibitors’ applications, as well as the attention devoted by the public to EMO Milano 2021. The applications we received are numerous and we believe that, already from the next weeks, the collection will accelerate, thanks to the positive news regarding the dissemination of vaccines. This will allow a return to normal mobility of goods and people, encouraging the recovery of all activities, as well as the participation in trade shows, particularly penalised by the health emergency.”
The worldwide vaccination campaign already expected from the beginning of 2021 for the foreign front and the incentive plan called Transition 4.0 for the domestic front create an extremely favourable context for EMO Milano 2021. After all, this is also confirmed by the forecasts of Oxford Economics, which highlight a demand recovery already from the next year.
Predictive maintenance, remote assistance, sensorization, data analysis, collaborative robotics, automation, servitization, interconnection and artificial intelligence will be among the technological themes presented in the halls of EMO Milano 2021, which will dedicate a special project to the digital world. As an exhibit and demonstration area, EMO Digital will illustrate the potential of a digital factory and the great opportunities offered by these technologies to all manufacturers, focusing particular attention not only on the world of machine tools, but also on the main user sectors. Also for this reason, EMO Milano 2021 will be able to attract exhibitors and visitors from any part of the world.
