Macef Ready for September Opening

MILAN, Italy-Macef, the International Home Show, opens in September with a new Thursday to Sunday schedule.

The Thursday to Sunday timeframe places the show, scheduled for Sept. 9-12 "in a highly advantageous position, distancing it from the month of August and ensuring it does not overlap with other important European fairs," according to show organizers. "Making Sunday the closing day should particularly favour retailers, who form the main category of operators visiting Macef."

More than 90,000 visitors and 1,800 exhibitors are expected. Exhibitors include companies Richard Ginori, SIA, Vanin, Tognana and Servetto.
