Save the date SAIE 2016 52° edition - Pathways, visions and knowledge for the future of construction


Casa Italia, the new Code for tendering contracts, the new UNI regulations for BIM.


Numerous developments and the emergencies of recent months have had a strong impact on the construction world. What are the developments in the building sector, in what is it headed?


The 52nd edition of SAIE, the Exhibition in Bologna for the Construction Industry, intends to answer these questions and others. Opening its doors on Wednesday 19th October, over four days the event will present the main innovations from the hundreds of companies exhibiting, underlining the event’s role as a reference point and opportunity for information and training for professionals and businesses, clients and construction personnel.


SAIE 2016 proposes: over 200 events lined up, occupying 10 pavilions in total, over 160 new products, for an exhibition pathway that aims to provide tangible solutions for a world that is changing, covering a range of themes from the design and planning stage to construction sites and maintenance and management of the works.


In the programme, available on the event website (, can be found a calendar including information about the guests, initiatives and in-depth meetings, including training credits for technicians. Also planned is a focus on themes of anti-seismic construction and safety, sustainability, energy efficiency and architecture, divided into three themed pathways - planning, building and living - and articulated into a programme that is up to date and projected towards the potential development of the production chain.


In this same spirit is the promotion of the SAIE Innovation Prize, towards zero impact, which will be awarded by a jury of experts including a representative of the Ministry of the Environment. The prize will acknowledge the 15 most innovative products chosen from over 160 submitted by the companies exhibiting at the Fair.  A section of the competition will be dedicated to sustainable innovations that offer particular features relating to environmental impact, energy efficiency and the reduction of consumption.


The companies are the real protagonists of SAIE 2015: they will be presenting tangible solutions and visions for the future of the world of construction, the event will also include talks and opportunities to network with experts, institutions and associations to provide an overview of urban regeneration, with a focus on the widespread maintenance and the social requalification of neglected and degraded areas of cities. A focus will be on Building Information Modelling, the theme of a discussion between experts and businesses involved in the construction of libraries, also in reference to the application of new UNI regulations and the introduction of the digitalization of the new Code. Also on the agenda is the discussion of Casa Mediterranea, an energy efficient living model, green solutions, the move towards sustainability for many companies in the sector, and the use of drones for surveying and monitoring. In order to face the challenge of internationalization, SAIE 2016 will open a window onto Iran and, in line with the government’s focus on the project Casa Italia, there will be an in-depth examination of anti-seismic measures involving specialized engineers, companies from the sector and guests from Japan.


One day before the opening of the event on Tuesday 18th October, the Bologna Exhibition Centre will host the Cresme research report on the current scenario and forecasts for the sector, with the aim of providing the public with some in-depth information about the future of construction.
