Carlo Giobbi opens the door for the next generation
“The time has come to open the doors to the second generation of Sicam to my children, Carolina and Michele, and to involve them even more strongly and directly in the management of this beautiful trade fair, which has become a fixed reference point in the international trade fair calendar thanks to the exhibitors and visitors who choose us every year.”
With these words, Carlo Giobbi – founder of Sicam, the international trade fair for components, accessories and semi-finished products for the furniture industry – announced his intention to give continuity and further impetus to the event by involving Carolina and Michele Giobbi even more directly in its management.
The news, shared with the numerous journalists present at the opening press conference of Sicam 2023, which took place from October 17 to 20, was received with a long and moving applause. Carlo Giobbi immediately wanted to make it clear that this was in no way a handover, but rather a dutiful recognition of the work done by his children in recent years and an incentive to continue on a very successful path in an era that requires trade show organizers to keep pace with ongoing changes.
“We must look to the future and show that we have the will and energy to enrich our position as an effective meeting place between people with new content,” Giobbi concluded.
We talked to Carlo Giobbi about this, of course, in our podcast on Sicam. You can listen to it HERE .
