BRICODAY EVENT PROFILE

The eleventh edition of Bricoday Expo&Forum, the most important B2B event for the world of DIY and home improvement, was held on 19 and 20 September 2018 at Mi.Co. in Milan, in the same location as in previous years.

 

Confirmed the structure of the event introduced last year, with the morning of 19 September dedicated exclusively to the congress and the opening of the exhibition hall from 12.30.

 

Bricoday Expo, with over 250 exhibitors (+35% compared to 2017), represents the widest display offer in the sector in Italy, with a constant growth of international operators. This year the pavilion South Wing was entirely occupied by the companies of Bricoday, given the new location of Hardware Forum (the event for the world of hardware organized by Koelnmesse Italy) in the adjacent pavilion North Wing.

 

The most represented sectors were: DECORATION, TEXTILE, BATHROOM FURNITURE, LIGHTING, OUTDOOR, GARDEN, WOODEN FURNITURE, TECHNICAL, ELECTRIC, BUILDING, HOUSEWARES.

 

In the Exhibitors section it is possible to view the company profiles, this year even more complete and detailed, available, like the whole site, also in English. It is also possible to send requests and contacts to exhibitors directly from the profile page.

 

Bricoday Forum was the moment to take stock of the market, thanks to the presentation of the Osservatorio Retail Bricolage and the speeches of the protagonists of the sector.

 

Compact, convenient to visit, business-oriented. Bricoday Expo & Forum is an event not to be missed.

BRICODAY CONGRESS 2018

The edition that ended on September 20 at Mi.Co. Milan was of great satisfaction for exhibitors, visitors and organizers of Bricoday Expo&Forum, thanks to the strong growth of all indicators compared to the 2017 edition.

Overall, in 2018 Bricoday registered 5.520 accesses (+23% compared to 2017), of which 4.710 unique users, with a significant increase in the number of distribution operators.

As for the exhibition, this edition was the richest ever with 260 exhibitors (+35% compared to 2017), which occupied the entire Mi.Co. South pavilion. Among these, foreign exhibitors, especially from France, showed a strong increase.

The presence of leading figures, the new formula of interviews, the two well-balanced parts between market data and speeches of distribution operators, have made the 2018 conference a great success. There was a good turnout in the second morning (+15%), but it was the first morning that saw the inaugural congress hall packed (+30%).

The videos of the speeches are available in the ‘congress’ section.

THE LOCATION

Bricoday’s exhibition area occupies an entire Mi.Co. Milano Congressi pavilion. 260 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

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 2018 edition agenda has been rich, both in speeches’ quality and quantity, developed in a two-mornings session.

In the Bricoday congress room (700 seats) debated 10 important speakers.

HARDWARE FORUM

Along with the 11th edition of Bricoday, the 4th edition of Hardware Forum – same day, different 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.
