Happy business to you

The only B2B Events dedicated entirely to the Contract Furniture


“Villa Cattaneo” – Via Villanova di Sotto, 16, 33170 Pordenone PN


14th – 16th Sep 2016

“Happy Business to You – Borsa del Contract Italiano” is an exclusive B2B event organised by Pordenone Fiere for entrepreneurs and professionals in the turnkey project contract sector, or rather for all those in the furniture business working with large-scale commissions, from hotels and restaurants to residential buildings and businesses, from ships to congress centres, museums to theatres, and large community spaces. It will take place on 14-16 September 2016 at the new venue VILLA CATTANEO in Pordenone.

The event involves three days of closed-door B2B meetings in an exclusive location, Villa Cattaneo in Pordenone, recently renovated in an unmistakeable Venetian style.

The event revolves around large Italian companies – furniture manufacturers and turnkey project suppliers – which will present their products to potential foreign buyers: architects, designers, interior designers, importers, suppliers, general contractors and developers from over 15 countries around the world, selected by the Italian Trade Agency (ITA) as emerging markets offering a wealth of opportunities.

In the heart of the furniture district, during the same period as the Biennale in Venice, “Happy Business to You” also represents an opportunity to discover the latest trends in the sector. Some of the attending companies will be setting up temporary showrooms, created especially for the occasion in the charming context of a Venetian villa, giving visitors the chance to see a snippet of the real Italian lifestyle.

The event is an integral part of a strategy towards internationalisation of Pordenone Fiere and is divided into two stages:

  • 14th September (full day) and 15th September (until 3.30 p.m.) will be dedicated to networking between businesses and international buyers in B2B meetings organised via a planned agenda, which aims to create real business opportunities.
  • 15th September (afternoon) and 16th September (full day) will be dedicated to the Open Day event. Foreign attendees will have the chance to visit these companies directly, to deepen their knowledge of their potential partners and capitalise on the meetings attended in the days before.
