Really special the 22nd edition of MECSPE with the extraordinary participation of MIMIT (Ministry of Enterprises and Made in Italy) in the Competence Center area: BI-REX will show its technologies and services in four different areas, bringing great news to the public.


This year, the largest event dedicated to innovations for the manufacturing industry will take place from March 6 to 8 at Bologna Fiere with an emphasis on the PNRR front and the new Transition 5.0 Plan: in addition to training and digitization, issues of sustainability and efficiency will also be addressed.

Thanks to the partnership with SENAF, BI-REX will play a central role within the Fair, multiplying its presence through a series of initiatives, in as many as 4 distinct areas:

  • Competence Center Area: in the Digital Factory Pavilion we will preside over an entire area together with MIMIT and the other seven Competence Centers (Hall 21 – Area B64);
  • Mecspe Lab Demo Area – Innovation Space: we will have a space dedicated entirely to Industry 4.0 technologies of the Pilot Line inside the Exhibition Heart/Service Center. Focus on Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Additive Manufacturing, Sustainability, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics;
  • Mech Square: an area dedicated to in-depth BI-REX guidance, consulting and training services where you can meet customers, partners and all stakeholders interested in the topic of technological innovation (Hall 30 – Stand A70);
  • STIMA stand: we will show in our partner’s booth the robotics section of the Pilot Line. (Hall 30 – Stand C54)
