Coiltech is a specialized event that aims to attract professional visitors of the Coil and Winding industry.
Over the years, the number of visitors to Coiltech has grown steadily and regularly, as has the proportion of international participants.
The main visiting nations from outside Italy are Germany, Slovenia, Croatia, Switzerland, Spain, France, Austria, China, United Kingdom, and Poland.
At the 2021 edition in Pordenone, the 2.200 electrical machines producers met 340 exhibitors in 256 stands. The trade fair was highly appreciated: both in terms of safety concerning the hygiene precautions taken and the quality of the conferences and business meetings.
It is relevant to note that the 2021 numbers are a good result in a pandemic environment, our goal is to resume our growth by restarting from the figures recorded in 2019: no less than 3,391 visitors from 51 countries, from all continents, met 409 companies. Among the visitors, 34% came from outside Italy, within over 27% from DACH countries and almost 20% from non-European countries. In the graph to the right: the visitor statistics of Coiltech verified by ISF Cert, an institute in the auditing of trade-show numbers.

Visitor data certification and UFI approval
Only visitors who have truly entered the exhibition are considered in our published figures. Exhibitors' staff is excluded from the calculation (Ask the organizers of other exhibitions about their method to count the number of visitors).
The data concerning the geographical origin are based on the information provided by visitors in the online-registration form of Coiltech.
The information about the duration of the visit is based on the electronic reading of the bar codes at the entrance and at exit.
Coiltech is the only Coil Winding exhibition that has the veracity and accuracy of visitor data certified by an independent company, ISFCERT.
When you want to exhibit at a trade show, ask the organizer for the certified visitor data. It's the only way you can be sure of the worth of your purchase.
Since November 2016, Coiltech is also the only Coil & Winding exhibition to have obtained the seal of "UFI-approved event" from the Board of UFI (Union des Foires Internationales).
To become a "UFI-approved event", the organizer is required to have the data of the show certified by an independent third-party auditor and commit to using this data exclusively for all communications; this is a further point to help ensure the accuracy of information regarding Coiltech visitors and exhibitors.
