Sheet Metal Working Industry Keeps Focus on International Business
From 21-25 October 2014 the international sheet metal working industry will meet again for its leading industry fair EuroBLECH 2014 in Hanover, Germany. A total of 1,411 exhibitors from 41 countries have to-date booked their stands, covering 86,500 m2 of net floor space across eight halls of the Hanover Exhibition Centre. This represents a 3% increase in exhibition space compared to the previous show.
Major exhibitor countries next to Germany are Italy, China, Turkey, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Austria and the USA. Half of all exhibiting companies come from outside Germany. This high percentage of international exhibitors once again confirms EuroBLECH’s position as the world’s No 1 exhibition for the sheet metal working industry. It also demonstrates that the industry sector continues to focus on international business contacts in order to be successful with their products in the long run.
“The sheet metal working industry is currently facing an economic environment of diverse regional market situations within our globalised world. In addition, there is a demand for an ever-growing choice of products which needs to be met by using innovative and flexible fabrication processes. In this challenging but highly promising environment, it is essential for companies in the sheet metal working industry to invest in innovative technologies and tailor-made machines and systems. Intelligent process chains and efficient networks are indispensable,” explains Nicola Hamann, Exhibition Director EuroBLECH on behalf of the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
