Vitrum 2003 XIII edition

VITRUM 2003 will be held in Milan fairgrounds from 25th to 28th June.As in 2001, VITRUM will take place in halls 14, 15 and 16 of the Portello pavilions, now the organizers tried and tested, which proved the ideal venue for such a demanding exhibition in terms of the large number and sizes of the machinery involved.Just in consideration of the great importance to run VITRUM 2003 in the Portello area, the organizers have decided to schedule the show some months before the usual period – June instead October.

Milan Fairgrounds will host in fall 2003 a big exhibition of electronic devices, which will occupy the whole available area. Further in 2005, VITRUM will be scheduled again with its usual calender (VITRUM 2005 will be held from 5th to 8th October).

The ongoing increase in exhibitor and visitor numbers seen at VITRUM in recent years reached its peak in 2001, confirming the tremendous interest aroused by the Milan exhibition among those in the trade, and the important role of Italian machinery, accessories and special products in the production, processing and transformation of glass.

For these reasons, and with the more than 27,000 square meters net taken up in 2001, VITRUM 2003 is growing upwards, in spite of the instable international situation, suffered by the world market in the last months and becoming much more difficult in the last four/five weeks. Nevertheless, VITRUM 2003 is reaching new records as far as net surface and exhibitors’ number.

The spaces have been distributed, as usual, on a rational basis, taking into account the technical needs of the exhibitors and the logistic restraints of the fair complex itself.

These are the numbers of VITRUM 2003, just few weeks before the opening day

Description VITRUM 2001 VITRUM 2003 % difference
Gross surface - sq.m. 53,059 54,059 +1.89
Net surface - sq.m. 27,218.5 27,424 +0.76

As far as visitors’ number they have positive forecasts, in consideration that the final result of October 2001, suffered with a decrease of 2.5% the worldwide crisis which followed the tragic even of September 11.
