A success which did not satisfy the organizers since the second edition of the first major Italian event entirely devoted to padel looks even more amazing!

Organized by Next Group, an integrated communication group, in collaboration with the Italian Tennis and padel and under the patronage of the Municipality of Milan, the “fair”, which had more than 100 exhibitors for its first edition, was literally taken over by fans who were able to meet stars of the discipline such as Martin Di Nenno or Miguel Yanguas.

The former footballers were also at the party, and, led by Bobo Vieri and his Italy tournament Padel Tour, the Candela, Toni or other Di Biagio clashed in front of the hundreds of people who filled the stands.

The event was also an important showcase for the b2b sector, generating business volume over the three days estimated at more than 10 million euros.

The next edition will have an even more international scope, precisely to strengthen the presence of buyers from certain new areas, in which the padel is particularly developing, such as the United States, the Middle East, China and the United Kingdom.

“We are happy to announce that the second edition of our event entirely dedicated to padel is being prepared and, after the great success of this year, we are ready to return with many novelties and original surprises.

The date to mark in your diary is from January 19 to 21, 2024, always at the MiCo in Milan, to offer a new unforgettable experience to all fans of the sport. Marco Jannarelli, Chairman of Next Group.

The Managing Director of Padel Trend Expo, Luigi Spera, is also very enthusiastic:

THE padel can become an incredible opportunity to promote the territory and the economy in general. Get ready to live another three unforgettable days for an even more immersive experience”.
