Why Your Visit Is Worth It
Blechexpo occupies a rather unique position within the metal working industry. It’s co-hosted with SWEISSTEC and together they become a powerful event that’s the only one in the world to showcase complementary technologies (sheet metal working and joining technology).
- 90,000 square metres of exhibition space;
- 1.282 exhibitors showcased;
- 39,280 visitors made the trip;
- 12,569 visitors came from outside Germany;
- Blechexpo is a source for information, research and education.
We’ve already touched upon the significance of Blechexpo in conjunction with SWEISSTEC, but we have to track its history and trajectory. The trade fair was first held in 1994 and was held under a different name altogether – Südblech. This all changed in 2005, when it took on its current name and has grown to become a business affair with an international appeal. Editions are spaced out every two years and held at Messe Stuttgart. One characteristic of the programming is that it’s directed towards the future. Visitors see this in the events geared towards research, training and vocational education. Another highlight is the Blechexpo Award, which honors breakthroughs into robotics, forming technologies, process control and quality.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
There is a real sense of growth; bigger and better things ahead for Blechexpo. Last edition saw not only an increase of 150 additional exhibitors, but also addition 10,000 square metres of exhibition space. As a major meeting point for the industry in the world, it’s no wonder there’s going to be a diversity in exhibitors. Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Turkey have been major participants, though now Asia is joining in with a strong representation from China. In terms of market interest, exhibitors occupy the entire value chain – printing tools, bending tools, profile processing, pulling tools, connectors, cutting technologies, punching equipment, stamping machines and sheet metal working machines to name a few.
