POSITIVE RESULTS FOR THE NEW ABILMENTE SPRING CONCEPT

The trade show is the leading creative handmade event in Italy and a European benchmark for this sector. Once again, it attracted many visitors from all over Italy and from various European countries, particularly from central and northern Europe. Over 250 exhibitors attended the event, almost 30 of which were foreign, from France, Spain, Germany, Hungary, Czech Republic, India and Ecuador.  

This first edition of Abilmente 2017 which will return to Vicenza in October with Abilmente Fall, followed by Abilmente Roma in November - presented many new additions. The event featured two exhibition areas: “Fabbrica dei sogni” (Dream Factory – Hall 7), where enthusiasts could find inspiration for their creativity in fabrics, embroidery and jewelry, and “Ricordati di me” (Remember me – Hall 1), the area devoted to products for decorations, such as paper, paints, stencils, home décor, washi tape and rubber stamps.   Starting this year, the event was organised around Isole della Creatività (Creativity Islands), areas in which visitors could find new ideas and explore their passion by attending workshops and meeting the most famous creatives and bloggers in the sector.  

Corrado Facco, Managing Director of Italian Exhibition Group, commented: “For this edition, we wanted to refresh the Abilmente concept in order to offer its thousands of fans even more engaging experiential content. The high number of visitors rewarded this decision and confirms the event’s leadership among the European trade shows in the sector. This is due to its constantly evolving format, which enables it to bring the best companies in the market together and to inspire visitors’ creativity with high-quality materials, new ideas and opportunities to take part in numerous practical demonstrations. We are also happy to have made Abilmente Spring 2017 a showcase for promoting projects with a great cultural impact and social significance.
