Koch Technology, IKEA, SCM Group, Igus. These are just some of the names that will be included in the first edition of the international exhibition held in Bergamo, but the ability to excel and innovate is not solely available for the big players. IDEA will also focus on small yet outstanding companies, enabling them to stand out like one of the bigger companies.
The experts are gaining interest in IDEA, the international event dedicated to the furniture industry, which will be a highlight in the yearly calendar of events for this sector.
IDEA (Innovation Design Expo Area) is held from the 12th to 15th of April 2016 in Fiera di Bergamo, during the same days of the Furniture Fair and the Milan Design Week: a synergy of dates that will result, for the more than 300.000 visitors already in place, in an opportunity to view and interact with the latest solutions related to woodworking machines and the world of furniture components.
Attracted by this formula, important players in the furniture industry have given their support to participate at the show, joining in various capacities (as an exhibitor, speaker at conferences, strategic partner or other) to the project IDEA.
The first edition, taking place on April 2016, will incorporate and revolve around two words critical to the future of the industry, excellence and innovation.
Two driving words that have accompanied SCM Groups strategies (specialists in the field of engineering, manufacturing and distribution of machine tools). SCM Group will be present at IDEA 2016, while visiting you can admire the best technological units of a group leader, as well as at least one innovative solution that is a first of its kind (a requirement of IDEA).
This is called the Innovation Rule, it requires participants to bring to IDEA at least one innovative technological solution. Exhibitors will only have the green light to display these innovative solutions after being reviewed by a scientific committee, made up of leading figures from the worlds of industry, design and academics.
The first companies to sign up as exhibitors, give immediate resonance and relevance to the event. Among them are Koch Technology a renowned German Machinery company which for over 50 years has focused its industrial research in the design and manufacture of special machines for the production of furniture and its components, whose common feature is innovation and maximum reliability) IKEA, with a series of conferences discussing the strategies of those who will shape the future of furniture and Igus, leading manufacturer of polymer components for high quality furniture.
The vision of IDEA is that innovation is an equal opportunity, from the smallest to the biggest. “There are small and medium companies - says the creator of IDEA, Romano Ugolini - that have a great capacity for innovation. The problem remains, however, communicating these features in a competitive manner. Our exhibition was created with this in mind, namely to signal to the market that there are new and dynamic ideas that have no reason to remain submerged”.
The ideas, which IDEA intends to intercept and anticipate within the conferences organized in the margins, will give maximum emphasis to technologies such as the Industry 4.0, robotics, digital printing, laser technology, new assembly systems without the use of any tools, manufacturing processes that do not use glue and so much more!.
