EMO Milano 2021, one of the largest machine tool exhibitions in the world, will be held in Milan, Italy, from 4 to 9 October 2021. The date was announced during a virtual press conference. With Italy both a major supplier and consumer of machine tools and manufacturing equipment, holding the show is as important to Italy as it is to the attendees, according to Marco Saladini, Trade Commissioner-Chicago of the Italian Trade Agency. With the current uncertainty around travel and other restrictions, the Italian trade authorities are clearly banking on a much better environment in early October 2021.
October 2021 is “when many observers deem that a substantial proportion of the global population might be immunised for COVID-19 already and international travel is supposed to have resumed,” explained Saladini in the virtual press conference.
He noted that 110 000 visitors attended the 2015 edition of the show, the previous one held in Milan.
“As you may know, the Italian government is already authorising, when some sanitary and administrative requirements are fulfilled, inbound travel from almost all countries in the world, in connection with trade shows and similar events taking place in Italy. As a matter of fact, another important show for this sector, BI.MU, took place in October 2020 in Milan, with hundreds of confirmed exhibitors.”
