SaMoTer is the only construction professional summit in Italy with a firm foothold on the entire ecosystem of the construction equipment sector. The international exhibition partners with The Committee for European Construction Equipment to deliver earth moving equipment to its already all-encompassing product offering.
SaMoTer occurs once every three years, and as such, it was particularly disrupted by the onset and continuous developments of the Covid-19 pandemic. 2020 coincided with its 31st event edition, which was postponed, and after continuous unsuccessful efforts to realise it led to the eventual cancellation of the 2021 dates. The organisers spend considerable time in data analysis to define the thematic focus of each SaMoTer edition, making it particularly well adapted to the concurrent industry needs. In 2023 public debate and institutional push for more sustainable industrial practices informed the SaMoTer decision to organise the exhibition and its supporting programme around the goals of the New Green Deal. Such approaches to sustainability in the construction sector are materialised through solutions that reduce emissions, utilise the usage of recycled materials in construction projects while optimising the economic and environmental costs of these innovations.
The ambitious and forward-thinking approach to event organisation makes SaMoTer a must-attend for all players in the construction business.
SaMoTer targets representatives from national and international industry and environmental associations such as CECE and Unacea, research institutes like CER and other institutional members. Since its first edition, SaMoTer has attracted the attention of serious earth-moving and construction machinery exhibitors in Italy. Now SaMoTer offers the stage to over 450 companies, almost a quarter of whom are coming from abroad. Visitors can meet with leading upper and middle management representatives of international businesses like Komatsu, Simexsri and HyundaiCee.
Visiting companies looking to join the transition toward sustainable building practices can find partners among the SaMoTer Innovation Award competitors. Businesses and individuals enter the competition with their latest machinery, equipment and prototypes that carry thoughtful designs offering solutions to the most common challenges in the construction industry today. These technical innovation competition awards distinguish innovative machine producers like Wacker Neuson, Kobelco or Hidromek for their contributions to creating user and environmentally friendly machines.
SaMoTer exhibition is a widely publicised event housing journalist representatives from the most influential Italian and international sector-specific publications. Headlines of the industry news are made at the special B2Press networking event, adding value to the experience of all exhibitors and fair participants.
At the beginning of SaMoTer’s longstanding trailblaze of realising successful construction industry summits stood the first-ever earthmoving machinery trade fair held back in 1964. Very quickly, in 1973, the show exhibition portfolio grew to include essential information, training programme and the pioneering prestigious award series. Today the impressive programme of educational events offers participants a better understanding of the technologies that make up the building sites of the future.
Fast forward to 2017 – SaMoTer’s most successful event edition surprised all attendees with its tailor-made approach, manifesting an event design committed to fuelling impetus in the Italian market while developing strong synergies with international construction companies.
Since its inception, SaMoTer has been devoted to promoting and improving channels for business meetings between construction professionals, public organisations and institutions, which are vital for driving innovation through the construction machinery sector. The international importance of SaMoTer shows in numbers, amounting to over 2.4 billion in industrial export sales in 2017 alone. For this reason, the SaMoTer Days are absolutely unmissable for all participants, especially visitors with decision-making powers and middle to upper management representatives.
