The tenth edition of SICAM gathered the elite of the global furniture industry in Pordenone

The tenth edition of SICAM, the International Exhibition of Components, Accessories, and Semi-Finished Products for the Furniture Industry, ended with a very positive flow of professional and buyers from all over the world. The most highly respected players in international furnishing were present at Pordenone over the past four days. Numbers are up again on the previous edition, endorsing the quality and variety of products on exhibit. Over ­­­­8000 companies came to the trade fair to create business opportunities for the 612 exhibitors who, occupying the entire trade fair area and the new hall 10 with over 16,500 square metres of stands, brought the world’s current top level technological and design products to exhibit at SICAM.

The international rate of the event was extremely high again this year with 37% foreign visiting professionals and buyers registered from 104 countries abroad. This is an absolute record for the trade fair which has strengthened its standing as an event that annually generates new high-profile business relationships and opens up to new selected markets. Among the visiting foreign countries, after Germany which as always has proved the most highly represented catchment area, it has been the Chinese buyers that have grown immensely to take second place in the standings, thus confirming the growing interest that SICAM holds in the Asian markets. These are followed by Spain, Ukraine and Russia, then Slovenia, France, Croatia and Great Britain, as well as a strong presence from North America.

And so, the gradual and constant growth trend has been confirmed again this year, marking the developmental stages of the trade fair: a growth that originates from the fact that SICAM is an event where all the top global players of the furniture sector come together every year. And once more we can see the success of its well-rounded, consolidated format which benefits from an environment that is always very refined and unique in the world of trade fairs: an exemplar which has always been very highly respected by the operators at the trade fair.
