Wood is a great choice. LEGNO&EDILIZIA launches its message

“Wood is a great choice”: in terms of price, health, comfort, safety and aesthetic appeal.

This is the slogan for the 10th international “Legno&Edilizia” show, which will take place at Verona Exhibition Centre from Thursday 9 to Sunday 12 February 2017.

There is a new format for this edition, which has been expanded to include all areas of construction in which wood can offer sound, successful solutions: structures, roofing and coverings, flooring, doors and windows.

Verona will become the Italian hub for wooden construction.

Ado Rebuli is the President of Piemmeti SpA, which organizes the biennial exhibition. He said that the newly overhauled event will serve as a nerve centre that brings together companies, carpenters, engineers, architects and professional firms.

“Legno&Edilizia” is thus consolidating its status as the only trade fair in Italy that specializes in the use of wood in construction.

It has always been an outstanding event, as underlined by the 72% approval rating among exhibitors and total of 20,000 visitors at the last edition. Other new features for 2017 will include a greater focus on operators from outside Italy. Delegations have been invited from Eastern Europe and emerging countries.

The range of content on display has been increased and there will be a selection of practical demonstrations and workshops, as well as a broader array of conventions.

The technical partner of the event will be ARCA, an offshoot of the Independent Province of Trento that is behind the number one certification system for buildings with wooden frameworks.
