BI-MU 2024 Update

It is smooth sailing for BI-MU 2024. The 2024 live edition will be held at the Fiera Milano Rho between 09.10.2024 and 12.10.2024. For many trade visitors and the organisers, BI-MU 2024 will represent the continuation of the industry's restart. The enthusiasm proves how essential trade fairs and exhibitions are for the success of exhibitors and buyers alike. The Fiera Milano Rho will not follow for the time being strict COVID-19 protective measures. This is due to the country removing its pandemic-related restrictions.


Held for the first time in 1958, BI-MU has a rich history supporting the Italian metalworking and machine tools industry. Over the years, the international trade fair has become a global platform for cross-border procurement. This process coincided with the growth of Italy as a crucial market. Now BI-MU embraces all manners of groundbreaking technology and is often where innovations are presented for the very first time. The show floors are divided in 5 exhibition zones - BI-MU Digital, RobotHeart, piùAdditive, Metrology & Testing, and BI-MU Logistics.


BI-MU is brought to exhibitors by EFIM-ENTE FIERE ITALIANE MACCHINE every two years in October in Milan, Italy. The trade fair is held at the fieramilano Rho and is heavily promoted by UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE. Currently, BI-MU will be co-held alongside XYLEXPO for its four-day run. Admission is given to trade visitors and work hours are set for 09:30 in the morning until 18:00 in the afternoon. Now let’s discuss how to commute to fieramilano Rho, which has an excellent location and public transport service. It’s fairly easy to grab any kind of transport from Milan city and get there in no time. There are also regular railway connections from the two airports closest to fieramilano Rho – Linate and Malpensa. The fastest way to commute is to use the M1 Line of the metro, which stops directly by the “Porta Est” Entrance.
