EuroBLECH 2012 Sustainable success in a global market
Stand reservation for EuroBLECH 2012, the 22nd International Technology Exhibition for Sheet Metal Working, has already begun. Taking place from 23-27 October 2012 in Hanover, Germany, the exhibition will occupy eight halls at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds: halls 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 27. The exhibitor brochure, published in five languages, is now available and includes important information for companies interested in participating in the leading international trade show for the sheet metal working industry.
With a total of 1,455 exhibitors from 43 countries and 61,500 visitors from 98 countries, EuroBLECH 2010 was more international than ever and covered a net exhibition space of 78,600 m2. EuroBLECH is audited by FKM, Society for Voluntary Control of Fair and Exhibition Statistics. The show had an above average increase in visitors from outside Germany, in particular from Asia, North America and the Middle East. EuroBLECH therefore reflects the general development of an ever more international orientation of this industry sector.
Central hub for international business 'Sustainable success in a global market’ is the theme for exhibiting companies at EuroBLECH 2012. The sheet metal working industry is a high-performance industry sector; this has become clear in the past few years: the industry was able to cope with the economic crisis by expertise, flexibility and continued innovation. Now companies have to closely watch industry trends and global markets. Only those companies that know their markets and seize their chances early enough will be able to profit from new business opportunities. This applies to small companies seeking to expand their business in a particular region as well as to global players continuously developing their worldwide networks.
“Since the previous EuroBLECH the economic situation within the sheet metal working industry has clearly stabilised. Although stand reservation for 2012 has just started we are already able to announce very positive demand for stand space at the next EuroBLECH,” explains Nicola Hamann, Exhibition Director EuroBLECH on behalf of the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
“While most of the companies were quite cautious for the previous show and preferred to book their usual stand space, now many exhibitors are asking for bigger stand sizes again at the leading industry event for the sheet metal working industry. As the central hub for international business and the first point of contact for cutting edge technology, EuroBLECH is considered the key exhibition for a successful future by small companies as well as the big players”, says Nicola Hamann.
Processing of hybrid structures now part of the exhibition profile The exhibition layout reflects the complete sheet metal working technology chain and covers 15 exhibition categories: Sheet metal, semi-finished and finished products; handling; separation; forming; flexible sheet metal working; tube/section working; processing of hybrid structures; joining/welding; surface technology; tool technology; machine elements; process control and quality assurance; CAD/CAM applications; factory equipment and R&D.
To reflect the growing importance of hybrid structures in sheet metal working, processing of sheet metal / plastic hybrid structures has now been included in the EuroBLECH exhibition profile as a separate category.
