Veronafiere International Department
Veronafiere is the leading direct organizer of events in Italy, second in terms of turnover and among the top exhibition centres in Europe and has always been a pioneer in finalizing international development programs and in being close to the opportunities offered by the new markets for the export of the finest products.
Thanks to the experience of Veronafiere in the sectors of building, construction and agribusiness, has been created Veronafiere International Department, specialized in the promotion on the emerging markets and in the internationalization.
Veronafiere, through its International Department and its subsidiary companies and partners, offers an impressive list of events in fields such as building and construction, materials, machinery, furnishings, agriculture in Brazil, Egypt, Morocco, the U.S., Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
In particular, the international strategic plan of Marmomacc, the leading International trade show and “must” event in the marble sector, is based upon three distinct “pillars”.
The first and main pillar is Marmomacc itself, that saw last year the participation of 1.513 exhibitors (60% international from 58 countries) and over 65.000 trade visitors (64% international).
The second pillar is related to Demand-Market Trade Shows. Veronafiere is aiming to give to Marmomacc and to its exhibitors a strong presence in markets with a high demand for stone, specifically the U.S. (TISE – StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas), the Middle East and Northern Africa (Qatar Stone-Tech, Saudi Stone-Tech, MS Marmomacc + Samoter Africa and Middle East, Médinit EXPO).
The third pillar is related to Supply-Market Trade Shows. The goal of Marmomacc events abroad is to reach a strong position in leading nations for stone extraction and processing such as Brazil (Vitória and Cachoeiro Stone Fair) and to attract the top level professionals, architects and interior designers to the trade show.
Here’s the calendar of Veronafiere’s events abroad:
