2016 Partners


The content of the exhibition areas of SAIE 2016 have been developed in close collaboration with the leading associations: ANCE (National Association of Constructors), AGI (Italian Geotechnical Association), AIST (Italian Technical Software Association), ANDIL (National Association for the Brick Industry), Assobeton (National Association for the Cement Manufacturing Industry) Conpaviper (National Association of Continuous Flooring) Federbeton (Federation of Associations for cement and materials for construction and connected applications and technology) Isi (Italians Seismic Engineering) and Federcostruzioni (Association of companies in the Construction sector, with 30 thousand companies involved in diverse productive sectors). Themes and instruments have been developed with the associations for in- depth analysis in line with the latest developments in the sector and at the service of businesses and professionals.


The associations present at SAIE 2016 offered a wide-ranging programme of interventions and meetings, exhibitions and training events -  as part of the SAIE ACADEMY - that enabled professional visitors to obtain training credits.


ANDIL – The National Association for the Brick Industry has promoted, in partnership with SAIE 2016, the Casa Mediterranea as a living model that is safe and energy efficient. The aim of the association was to highlight the importance in Italian company research to create innovative and sustainable materials for the building sector. Also planned are three special events organized in the Piazza for bricks and ceramics in pavilion 26.

Models of urban regeneration strongly linked to the environmental context, energy efficiency, anti-seismic measures were the central themes for the series of meetings.


AGI – The Italian Geotechnical Association has organized at SAIE 2016 a focus on the technical instruments for monitoring and geotechnical engineering, which will be dedicated to the study and planning of works that interact with the terrain.  AGI will also organize at SAIE 2016 in collaboration with BolognaFiere the XXVIII National Geosynthetic Convention, which will take place in the Sala Bolero inside the Service Centre on the 19th October at 9.30 am.


AIST – Also in 2016 the Italian technical software association has organized, in collaboration with SAIE, a series of events that have token place in pavilion 32, dedicated to BIM planners in order to promote an opportunity for professionals, companies and institutions to exchange ideas and expertise with a focus on digitalization and the innovations introduced by the new Code for Contract Tenders and the introduction of the UNI norms. The central themes were the accessibility of new technologies to design in a sustainable manner and seismic engineering in relation to BIM.


FEDERBETON – For the fourth consecutive year the Federation of the production chain for cement and base materials for construction and connected applications and technology, has set up in pavilion 25 The Ideas Factory, a place for cooperation between the association and companies and SAIE. An opportunity for creativity that aimed to encourage dialogue between the different institutional, industrial and technical players in order to discuss the future of the sector, jointly with technological and ecological innovation connected to sustainability and the security of the territory.


ITALIAN SEISMIC ENGINEERING -  in pavilion 25, as part of the Build pathway, there was an area dedicated to seismic engineering organized by the association ISI, Italian Seismic Engineering. The association’s mission was to involve the diverse players involved in the field of Italian Seismic Engineering in a dynamic group that represents and promotes them, organizing activities for raising awareness, communicating with the official bodies, institutions and regulatory bodies, with the academic and scientific communities, the world of industry and that of professionals in the sector.
