Organiser Veronfiere confirms new dates after postponement due to pandemic, and outlines focus on future of construction machinery for 2023 edition 

The organisers of Samoter, the Italian construction machinery show and one of the largest in Europe, have announced May3-7 2023 as the dates for the next edition of the show, which is held in Verona, Italy.

The event last took place in2017 and Veronfiere, the organisers, had earlier postponed its 31st edition to March 2023 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. According to the latest announcement, the event will now take place on May 3-7 2023 in Verona, Italy.

Giovanni Mantovani, CEO of Veronafiere, said: “We have a date at last for the return of SaMoTer after the long pit stop caused by the most acute phase of the pandemic. The supply chain was significantly impacted by the cancellation of one of its landmark professional events in Europe. Trade fairs continue to confirm their role as one of the main tools for promoting business.”

According to Veronafiere, Samoter 2023 will focus on the future of construction machinery, which includes ‘human to machine (h2m) and machine to machine (m2m) technologies, efficiency, safety and sustainability”.

Among the highlights of the programme for 2023 is the role that the construction equipment industry will play in environmental sustainability and the development of the economic models that are outlined in the New Green Deal.

The event will incorporate an interactive and dynamic approach, focusing on demo areas while visitors will also benefit from six halls and three outdoor areas, said Veronafiere.
