BRICODAY CONGRESS 2016

BRICODAY 2016, A SUCCESS BEYOND ALL EXPECTATION.

THANKS FOR COMING AND SEE YOU AT THE NEXT EDITION.

 

After a steady growth in both visitor and exhibitor numbers that lasted 8 years, it was normal to expect an adjustment, whereas Bricoday Expo&Forum 2016 edition, the ninth, that took place at the Mi.Co in Milan, has revealed a strong growth, also thanks to the success of Hardware Forum, the event dedicated to the hardware industry.

Here are some figure that represents the event: 218 exhibitors (+15%) but mainly a boom in visitors, 4500 (+40%).

An excellent result also for the congress agenda so rich and well-structured with an amount of 25 speakers. In the Congress area you can find speakers slides and videos.

THE LOCATION 2016

Bricoday’s exposition area occupies an entire Mi.Co. Milano Congressi pavilion. More than 170 exhibitors took their place on a total area of 6,000 m2, representing every possible “world” of DIY business.

The pre-built booths have compact size – from 7.50 to 30 m2 – optimizing the visiting time and promoting contacts with various leader companies.

Be an exhibitor at Bricoday is an intelligent way to make a fair: the companies as well as the visitors can focus on their own business only, in an operational pavilion built to ensure a consistent flow of visitors.

Mi.Co Milano Congressi is also a prestigious location, well connected to main motorway junctions, railway stations and airports to ensure an easy access to Italian and international visitors.

THE CONGRESS 2016

The heart of Bricoday is its congress, an appointment not to be missed for every professional operator from the DIY and gardening business. Our top speakers are research institutes, leading exponents of the academic world, prominent figures of DIY Specialized Retailers and producing companies. Every year, Bricoday gives the opportunity to display the market data, to identify future scenarios, to highlight threads and issues linked to the Specialized Retailers’ world, to be informed about the most interesting case histories.

The 2016 edition agenda has been the richest ever, both in speeches’ quality and quantity developed in two sessions, in the morning and in the afternoon.

HARDWARE FORUM 2016

Along with the 9th edition of Bricoday, the 2nd edition of Hardware Forum – same day, same pavilion – has been held. After its successful debut in 2015, it seems to be the key venue for hardware, tools and technical equipment producers and retailers. The congress has been held next to a wide exposition area: our highly-qualified speakers have debated on strong and current issues concerning the varied world of hardware stores. A training opportunity and a display to promote new items and the latest innovations in the field.

Hardware Forum is powered by Koelnmesse – a leading hardware fair organization holding international expositions such as Eisenwarenmesse Cologne and CIHS Shangai – in collaboration with Epe Edizioni, organizer of Bricoday.
