BRICODAY CONGRESS 2017

BRICODAY 2017, A SUCCESS BEYOND ALL EXPECTATION.

THANKS FOR COMING AND SEE YOU AT THE NEXT EDITION.

 

Before the opening of the gates many were not convinced of the transition to a two-day event. Fortunately, the choice was the right one: the number of visitors increased and the attendance between Wednesday and Thursday was well balanced.

During the first day the room of the inaugural meeting was crowded and in the afternoon people were divided between the exhibiting area and the conference room. Thursday was confirmed as the moment of greater turnout, with a very crowded exhibiting area and a good presence at the morning meeting.

Overall, Bricoday and Hardware Forum registered 5,400 entries (+ 20% compared to 2016), with a significant increase in the number of distribution operators, whereas the exposition was the largest ever, with 253 exhibitors who occupied the entire South Pavilion of Mi.Co..

In the Congress area you can find speakers slides and videos.

THE LOCATION

Bricoday’s exposition area occupies an entire Mi.Co. Milano Congressi pavilion. 210 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 2017 edition agenda has been the richest ever, both in speeches’ quality and quantity developed in a two-days session, in the morning and in the afternoon.

HARDWARE FORUM

Along with the 10th edition of Bricoday, the 2rd 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.
