The 28th edition of SIMEI, the leading international fair in technology for the winemaking and bottling sectors will be held from 19 to 22 November 2019 at Milan Exhibition Centre in Rho.
After the success of the last edition, which was held in Munich in conjunction with drinteck, SIMEI returns to Italy, where it will be a fixed event, every two years, bringing with it significant prospects for growth and important new features.
The key word for this new edition is Incoming, a project that in 2017 brought over 150 delegates from all over the world to SIMEI. The project will be strengthened for this new edition by a significant use of energy and resources for international promotion thanks also to Simest, a company in the Cassa depositi e prestiti Group that supports the growth of Italian companies. Objective: to double the presence of buyers, operators and producers from all the wine-growing regions in the world and to develop new working relationships with public institutions and the associations representing the producers and wine-growing professionals, on a national and international level.
Another new feature of the 2019 edition, while keeping its "verticality" on the world of wine, SIMEI will be opening up, in an organic and structured way, to production chains similar to wine, such as oil, craft and other beers, and the vast world of spirits that, with winemaking, are increasingly sharing processes, production practices and, therefore, technologies, products and accessories.
