Italian Exhibition Group takes over the organizational management of the Fesqua and EBRATS shows in Brazil

Rimini / San Paolo, 5th December 2022 - Italian Exhibition Group, which has been operating in Brazil for about a year with its subsidiary IEG Brazil, adds two new events to its portfolio: Fesqua, South America´s number one trade show in the sector of machinery and equipment for windows, doors and fixtures, and EBRATS, Brazil´s main event in the surface treatment sector.

Fesqua and EBRATS, two traditional trade shows on the calendar of B2B events in Brazil, are also top events in the whole of Latin America for other important related segments, such as anodising and anti-corrosion products, quality control technologies for processes, chemical deposition, surface treatment, automation, gate and grating installation.

The two biennial events will be held in the same São Paulo Expo halls from 11th to 14th September 2024, covering a total area of 35,000 square metres with approximately 40,000 visitors.

´This operation is a further step in IEG´s consolidation process in Brazil,´ says Graziano Messana, Managing Director of IEG Brazil, ´and demonstrates our optimism in terms of the trade show event market. In just 12 months we have already acquired the Brasil Trading Fitness Fair, BTFF, an event in the wellness and fitness sector, and we are now taking over the management of these two major milestones on the civil construction calendar.´

´The first edition of BTFF has just ended with enormous success,´ continues Francesco Santa, Director of International Development for IEG Group, ´with more than 100 companies participating on a total surface area of 15,000 m2 and 22,000 visitors over the four days of the event. These two events, which, as of now, will be organised directly by our subsidiary in Brazil, will further enrich IEG´s international portfolio. Step by step IEG is consolidating its role as an absolute protagonist on the global stage, also to the benefit of its traditional business that sees Italy, and Rimini in particular, as its beating heart.´
