The project has the participation of 72 companies and 38 design studios. In 2013, the participating companies reported significant increase in exports. Compared to 2012, exports increased 14.6%, completing four consecutive years of growth. In 2014, the project will participate in fairs FMC China (China), Intermob Istanbul (Turkey), Sicam Pordenone (Italy) and Fenafor Peru (Lima).
