The second edition of IT’s Tissue held in Lucca, Italy, June 21-28 attracted 42% more participants that the inaugural event held in Lucca in 2013. The 2015 edition of the event had more than 1,000 visitors from around the world.  

The Tissue Italy network of 12 companies behind IT’s Tissue have confirmed that, due to the enthusiastic international response, the third edition of IT’s Tissue will take place in 2018. The 12 companies forming the Tissue Italy network are: A Celli, Elettric 80, Fabio Perini, Futura, Gambini, MTC, Omet, PCMC, Pulsar, Recard, TMC and Toscotec. 
IT’s Tissue is a week-long event featuring a daily series of open houses and other events. Participants are taken to Tissue Italy network manufacturing and R&D facilities where they can see, hear, and touch technology, working with real products. Organizers of the event point out that tissue technology is one of many industries limited by the traditional exhibition format because of the sheer size of the equipment involved. The open houses allow participants to "come to the technology" and see up-close and first-hand this type of technology in full operation. 

Network President Matteo Gentili noted that "IT’s Tissue has proved again to be a great success. It is a wonderful celebration and exploration of tissue technology and a strong signal of the health of the Italian sector. To see so many people from five continents make the journey to Lucca to witness our solutions in action is a source of great pride and an affirmation of the event itself. They have seen the best the market can offer."
