SamuVetro 2002 report

Samuvetro, the new fair aimed at the glass sector in the North East of Italy, has been held from June 13 to 16, 2002 at Pordenone Fiere Fairground.

This event was mainly directed towards the flat glass sector, from equipment to accessories and tools.

Samuvetro 2002 has been visited by over 2000 professionals, coming from Italian regions (veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia above all) and from neighboring Countries such as Austria, Slovenia and Croatia, as well. Addressed to architects, engineers, glaziers and professionals in the building, furniture and manufacturing industries, Samuvetro reflects the trends within the national and international markets through the participation of some between the main Italian companies and technical conferences involving experienced professionals and covering current topics in construction and interior architecture.

Samuvetro has also registered the increase in the consumption of glass by the furniture industry, which has in the Region around Pordenone the major manufacturing area in Italy. The fair has also also granted an important contribution to the construction industry, which is growing at a very interesting rate not only in the North East of Italy but above all in Former Jugoslavia Countries, from where a number of dealers and manufacturers came to Pordenone visiting Samuvetro.

The next 2004 event, scheduled on the month of May, promises to be even more complete with special sections dedicated to exhibitors who supply glass to the furniture and construction industry, and exhibitors manufacturing glass furniture.

The Pordenone Fiere Fairground gathers over 10 exhibitions per year in its halls. In the recent past years, Pordenone Fiere has grown not only in quantity but especially in quality: such a development has led this Fair Organiser to become an institution between the most important in Italy as organiser of professional exhibitions. The Pordenone Exhibition Centre is one of the best equipped in the North East of Italy, counting with 28,000 sq.m. exhibiting indoor surface and over 40,000 sq.m. outdoor.
