Following the success of the 2016 edition of MCE – Mostra Covegno Expocomfort - the world’s leading exhibition dedicated to residential and industrial installations, air-conditioning and renewable energies, - the organisation is shifting up into top gear for MCE 2018.
MCE dates for 2018 will change from those previously listed of Tue 20 March - Fri 23 March to Tuesday 13 March – Friday 16 March, bringing it forward by one week to better tie in with the international trade exhibition calendar.
A feather in the cap of MCE – Mostra Covegno Expocomfort is its consolidated international dimension supported by the outstanding results achieved at MCE 2016: 2,018 exhibitors, of whom 45% from overseas representing 55 countries. Over 155,332 industry professionals attended the show, of whom around 39,140 travelled from 141 different countries, with an increase of 8% compared to MCE 2014 accounting for 25% of the total number of international trade visitors.
The overseas attendance got a boost thanks to the interest in a sector that is alive with innovation, and excels in the global construction and installation industries.
“An important decision - Massimiliano Pierini - Managing Director of Reed Exhibitions Italia said of the change – based upon a closer inspection of the worldwide calendar of all trade show events and Fiera Milano Exhibition Centre availability, to further enhance the uniqueness of MCE brand and to meet the needs of businesses and professionals alike. The strength of MCE is in its internationalisation that has once again acted as a benchmark event for the global supply chain as well as a global platform to bring together even more visitors and exhibitors”.
Preparations will get into full swing for MCE – Mostra Covegno Expocomfort 2018 after MCE ASIA. The show took place from 7- 9 September 2016, in conjunction with BEX and the International Green Building Conference at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, a global strategic hub towards several countries, namely Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, South Korea which represent a new frontier of comfort in the construction industry but above all in the sustainable or green building construction.
The driving force behind MCE ASIA and BEX ASIA lies in the ability to showcase a 360 degree view of unique ground-breaking solutions in terms of energy efficiency and energy saving for the construction supply chain, from building envelopes to coverings, from heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems to smart water management installations.
