ASSOMAC, the national association of technology-makers, is financing an agro-forestry project through the planting of 500 plants in Madagascar. The project is promoted in collaboration with Treedom, the only web platform in the world that allows you to plant a tree remotely and follow its growth online.


“It is a concrete, engaging and transparent activity designed to communicate the Association’s commitment to sustainability” - says the president of ASSOMAC, Gabriella Marchioni Bocca.

300+ exporting manufacturers and exhibition organisers are working to provide cutting-edge technological solutions to thousands of visitors from all over the world.

ASSOMAC stands beside companies wishing to remain globally competitive

The topic of the ASSOMAC Annual Meeting in Vigevano on Friday 25 May is how the world and business models are changing.

To the satisfaction of its 300 exhibitors

The 2018 edition of Simac Tanning Tech ends with greatly increased visitor numbers: attendance went beyond the most optimistic forecasts recording +18% compared with 2017, a successful year in itself.

The first eleven months of 2017 signal an increase of approx. 10% for both exports and production

The Association is presenting a labelling system for the energy-environmental performance of technologies in the sector at Simac Tanning Tech.

Growing consumer awareness of environmental issues and the desire to purchase guaranteed products is driving the manufacturing industry towards energy-efficient production models that are less polluting and more respectful of ethical and safety standards.

“Just a few months to go until the next Simac Tanning Tech and, with the application process now completed, exhibitor numbers are higher than last time. That is not all: the demand for exhibition space has grown, a sign that companies are keen to be seen at their very best, on bigger and more inclusive stands that bring the cream of their production to the event and fill the exhibition space to its maximum capacity.
