MECSPE rescheduled for Autumn: the event will take place at BolognaFiere from 23rd to 25th November 2021


The ongoing block of exhibition events, mobility restrictions and a lack of certainty from Institutions leave no choice other than to reschedule: the event will take place at BolognaFiere from 23rd to 25th November 2021.

Milan, 13th April 2021 – The 19th edition of MECSPE, Italy’s most important event dedicated to innovative technologies for 4.0 manufacturing companies, originally scheduled to take place in BolognaFiere from 10th to 12th June, has been officially postponed to autumn. The rescheduled event will now be held from 23rd to 25th November 2021, in light of the ongoing block of exhibition events, mobility restrictions and a lack of certainty from Institutions. It is with enormous regret that the organisers have made this decision, albeit in everyone’s best interests (participants, exhibitors, staff and all those involved).


“After lengthy reflection, despite the immense efforts of the event’s organisers, the venue, trade associations and the professional production chain that contributes towards this International Exhibition, much to our regret we have decided to reschedule MECSPE to autumn, from 23rd-25th November 2021, once more at BolognaFiereIvo Nardella President of Senaf, Gruppo Tecniche Nuove stated – We have worked hard these last few months to guarantee an edition that would mark the market’s relaunch and in line with all health protocols required by the Government and Region, however this wasn’t enough to have the certainties we needed to continue. All too aware of the repercussions which postponing the event will have on over 1,300 exhibitors, who had reconfirmed their attendance, and on everyone else involved, we would like to thank the companies for their support, the relationship grounded in respect and trust we have had the pleasure of forging with them in all these years of working together. Trade fair events are moments for discussion and opportunities for growth; they are worthy of attention, if we really want to relaunch Italian industry.”

For 19 years, MECSPE has been the benchmark event for the manufacturing industry when it comes to innovation. Here, every visitor can discover the latest and most innovative materials, products and technologies for each sector. The event scheduled to take place at BolognaFiere from 23rd to 25th November 2021 remains firmly committed to supporting Italy’s SMEs and industry, confident that talent, commitment and creativity will remain distinctive and competitive features of Italian production throughout the world.
