World ArchitecTour, Padova Hall’s innovative project that looks to the future

Jun 30, 2022

After the success of its first edition, the highly anticipated appointment with World ArchitecTour returns, the B2B event promoted by Padova Hall is scheduled on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th July.
Launched with the aim of promoting and matching Italian excellences in the sectors of furniture, design and interior fittings with opinion leaders from the African continent, the first edition closed its doors in July 2021 with the almost unanimous satisfaction of buyers and exhibitors.
The tailor made matching format – already successfully tested during the first edition – will complement the exhibition area with a busy schedule of one-to-one meetings, designed to encourage the development of immediate business opportunities.
The response from exhibiting companies has been very positive and there is already a future prospect in growth of the numbers of exhibitors , the first edition already hosted some of the most prestigious and internationally recognized brands in the furniture and design sector.
Even if the 2022 format has remained unchanged, the change of name – from Africa ArchitecTour to World ArchitecTour – responds to a medium-long term development plan that aims to extend the event to other markets.
The B2B appointment is organized by Fiera di Padova with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and ICE – Agency for the promotion abroad and internationalization of Italian companies and with the patronage of the Veneto Region.
This year, the project is also supported by the Marche Region and Tecne (Special Company of the Marche Chamber of Commerce for the furniture and mechanical sectors), financing 50% of the participation of the Marche companies.
