Simei 2015: wine and technology are back in Milan


For over 50 years Simei has been a reference point for a key sector in international economy and especially Italy’s economy: wine. Precisely Italy is playing a leading role in terms of technological innovation. Export of machines and equipment used for bottling, labelling and packaging in the cellar are constantly on the rise, ensuring a turnover worth over 1 bn euros, equal to about 60% of the whole commercial chain.

In 2013 imports fell, allowing for an active balance of about 1.8 bn euros.

With this view of growth and positive attitude, SIMEI prepares itself to come back to the trade fair centre in Milan Rho from November 17 to 20 2015: in less than a year companies in the wine industry will display the best in terms of innovation, helping to make the event an opportunity for an update on the latest professional, technical and scientific news.

Technology will be the undisputed protagonist of the event with the presentation of latest-generation machinery and services: the best ones will receive an award from a technical/scientific panel during the Innovation Challenge, an initiative designed to give prominence to innovations bringing a significant contribution to the sector’s progress.

P.E. Labellers is preparing itself to take part in the next edition of SIMEI with its best technology: 2015 is set out to be a fundamental year for Italy and Milan, which will also host Expo 2015.
