Veronafiere - Trade shows & events since 1898VERONAFIERE S.p.A.

Veronafiere is the leading direct event organizer in Italy, second in terms of sales turnover and leader in Europe, thanks to over one hundred years of experience in the sector and the strategic geographic position, at the centre of the main European intermodal routes.
The history of Veronafiere goes back to 1898, with the six-monthly agriculture and horse shows set up by Verona City Council. The “Ente Autonomo per le Fiere di Verona” was founded in 1930 and became Veronafiere S.p.A. in 2017, thereby taking the legal status of a joint-stock equity company.

More than 1.2 million visitors, 13.8 thousand exhibitors, 764,000 square meters of show areas and stands sold, 68 events organized (52 in Italy and 16 abroad in 11 Countries) and consolidated financial statements of 86 million euros. These are the results posted by Veronafiere in 2017, confirming its status as one of the most important international promotional platforms for company and trade business.
Vinitaly, Marmomac, Fieragricola, Fieracavalli, SaMoTer, Sol&Agrifood and Enolitech are just some of the successful trade fair events in Veronafiere's portfolio, with a special focus on wine and agro-food sectors, as well as natural stone and construction equipment.
Yet such specific vocations have by no means prevented diversification of the offering over the years, extending into other sectors such as heating based on wood biomasses (Progetto Fuoco), custom motorbikes (Motor Bike Expo) and bicycles (CosmoBike Show), not forgetting the world art (ArtVerona Project Fair), education and training (Job&Orienta) or the biomedical sector (Innovabiomed).
All this is joined by the conference activities managed by Veronafiere in its dedicated facilities, which in 2017 hosted 384 events attended by almost 95,000 people.

Veronafiere's operations have always focused firmly on consolidated and emerging world markets thanks to a network of 60 foreign delegates, a specifically founded company (Veronafiere do Brasil), a permanent office in Shanghai and another in Cairo, as well as its own global events – first and foremost those involved in the Vinitaly International Tour.

Veronafiere has implemented an increasingly virtuous and sustainable business model in environmental terms. It was the first exhibition centre in Italy to receive ISO 50001 certification and have eco-certified aluminium and fabric fittings that are 100% recyclable.
It also generates clean energy from more than 2 thousand square metres of solar panels installed on the roofs of the pavilions and is among the top exhibition centres in Europe for recycling waste arising during events, with a quota in excess of 70% of total. Energy efficiency improvements of facilities in 2017 helped save 80 TEPs (equivalent tons of oil).

SITEB - Italian Roads and BitumenSITEB - Italian Roads and Bitumen

SITEB is a non-profit association that brings together across the board the main operators in the road and waterproofing membrane sector.

The only such organisation in Italy representing the needs of this sector, SITEB joins the forces of around 200 members, including companies, Public Administrations, authorities, laboratories and service providers, institutions and professionals.

SITEB is a member of several national and international organisations. It is one of the founders of IBEF, the International Bitumen Emulsion Federation. It is a member of ANCE (Italian Construction Industry Association), Confindustria, EWA (European Waterproofing Association), AIA-EMAA (European Mastic Asphalt Association), UNI (Italian Standardisation Authority) and AIPCR (Road Building Association). In addition, it takes part in the work of the European Standardisation Committee (CEN) as a member of the TC 227 Technical Committee for the standardisation of materials used in the construction of road paving.
SITEB collaborates with EAPA (European Asphalt Pavement Association) and, through its members in the oil industry, with Eurobitume (European Association of Bitumen Producers).

Since its inception, SITEB has come forward as a driving force for growth and modernisation of the asphalt supply chain. The association's main activities focus on promoting innovation of production and application techniques for bituminous binders and asphaltic materials, disseminating the acquisition of technical skills in full respect of the environment and the safety of workers and encouraging the adoption of the highest quality standards for production and application processes, often helping to draft standards, regulations and guidelines for the road building sector.

SITEB works in synergy with local and national administrations to promote progress and improvement in production, quality and environmental spheres of the road-building sector in Italy with the aim of ensuring sustainability, capillarity and quality of road networks as the basis for the growth and well-being of the Country.
