As October is now well under way, it is time to get ready for the International Sicam Exhibition in Pordenone, Italy. This exciting, intercontinental event sees companies from across the globe coming together in one place to present their organisations, meet with trade customers and chat to fellow suppliers of all components, semi-finished products and accessories for the furniture industry.


This outstanding exhibition commences bright and early on the 16th October 2018 and lasts for three exhilarating days, with lots of presentations taking place and leading industry experts on hand to bring you up to date with news on the latest, most innovative designs of the 21st Century.


As agents for Agoform , Fennel UK are delighted to be attending this event and accompanying them on their stand C31 in hall 7. Are you a trade buyer who wants to find out more about this sensational event? Read on..



Who are Agoform?


Agoform are without doubt, one of the leading industry experts in their sector and Fennel UK are proud to be their exclusive partner in the UK. Manufacturing a wide variety of heat formed plastic components for caravans, furniture, kitchens, bathrooms and offices, they own their own extrusion machinery and are the largest manufacturer of precision fitting plastic drawer inserts.


Based in Loehne in the North-Rhine region of Germany, the company have produced a wide range of enduring designs year on year. Items such as anti-slip matting, cutlery trays and soft surface drawer linings are just part of a product range bursting with quality and industry know-how, and their range of colours, surface finishes and sizes are second to none.


Add this to their broad spectrum of experience in industries such as gardening and landscaping, goods carriers and product displays (KLT), electrical engineering and medical technology as well as logistics, advertising and decoration, and you can understand why this is a must visit stand if you are attending the exhibition. 



Who Else are Exhibiting at Sicam?


Naturally at an exhibition of this magnitude the Exhibitors list is full and particularly extensive. There are a series of 10 exhibition halls, each one bursting with innovation and creativity, and literally hundreds of exhibitors, displaying items such as roller shutters, interior trim for cabinets, sinks for kitchens and bathrooms, lighting systems and domestic appliances.



There are organisations who specialise in interior coatings such as panelling and flooring, semi-finished surfacing for worktops and kitchen tops, hardware companies and fabrics and leather goods. All coming together in one area for three whole days, providing an opportunity to see, touch and interact with the products and the designers.


Sicam is without doubt, one of the largest exhibitions for the furniture industry, and the organisers do an incredible job of ensuring every aspect has been covered; no stone is left unturned in their quest to provide an event that goes above and beyond the expectations of even the most demanding exhibitors and visitors and the level of professionalism is both reassuring and motivating for an event of this size.



How to Get There 


The Province of Pordenone is a truly beautiful region of Italy, situated in the North East of the country and surrounded by hills, mountains, lakes and rivers. 


If you are already registered to attend, or you are now thinking of visiting this wonderful exhibition, transport to and from the Expo is not difficult. Lufthansa offer a global network of flights in to Italy, connecting Venice, Trieste, Verona and Milan with major cities from around the world. They are the official airline sponsoring the event and are offering special travel rates for anybody attending this event.



Similarly, the internal transport network offers easy access to the region, with the major motorway network connecting the main cities if you wish to travel by car, or, if you prefer to take the train to Pordenone Station, this is situated just 800m away from the arena. For anybody flying in to the area, there is a shuttle bus service available, and plenty of hotels and guest houses for those wishing to stay for a few days.



The History of Sicam


First started in 2008, this exhibition has steadily grown year on year, and has seen improvements in the format to make this a most well-respected industry exhibition. Now in its tenth year, this promises to be the best one yet, covering over 32,000 square metres and with exhibitors from over 35 countries at Sicam 2017, the number of visiting organisations is expected to reach up to 8000.


Registration has been open for a while, but there is still time to get your access pass for the event which you will need to do in advance of arriving at the exhibition halls. 



This latest showcase of design and manufacturing specialists follows a series of global exhibitions of international importance in the furniture industry, with Sicam being present in Europe, Asia and South America and with all expositions being widely successful, Italy is promising to offer more of the acclaimed high standards people have come to expect.
