Italy’s Asphaltica exhibition, co-located in Verona with the construction machinery exhibition SaMoTer, has been moved to March 2023.
The triennial event was due to be held in Verona’s main exhibition hall Veronafiere in March 2020, but was pushed ahead to this month due to the COVID pandemic.
"This was an inevitable yet carefully analysed and widely shared decision," said Giovanni Mantovani, chief executive of Veronafiere. "The scenario associated with the pandemic is still very uncertain. Consequently, in agreement with manufacturers and sector associations, we have identified a new positioning in line with the needs of this industry as well as the calendar of other specialised trade fairs in Europe.
“At the same time, we are well aware of the importance for companies of having live occasions for presenting their latest developments to the Italian market. We have, therefore, decided to organise a dynamic new run-up event in autumn 2021," he said.
The format will be a three-day demonstration-based event held in a quarry, with construction machinery and equipment operating from September 30 to October 2.
The event is scheduled in the same date as Marmomac, a trade fair for the natural stone supply sector that showcases processed products, technologies, machinery and tools for quarrying.
