Covid-19 Event Update
EuroBLECH will next return as a live event from October 25th until October 28th 2022 at Messe Hanover, but in the meantime organisers have confirmed the international exhibition will take a hybrid approach. This started with the EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit in 2020 and will continue with a line of digital events in 2021. The 2022 live edition of EuroBLECH will be held amidst strict Covid-19 safety measures. This will include attendees needing to show before entry documents such as negative test results. They must also maintain a social distance of 1.5 metres at all times. Wearing face masks in indoor areas such as the exhibition halls is also mandatory. Because of the travel restrictions, attendees will be asked to show 3G documents upon arrival in Germany.

Why Your Visit Is Worth It
EuroBLECH means business and pushes you into the spotlight. The exhibition is a magnet for top buyers and as a key meeting place, organisers report high attendance rates. In 2018, the audience exceeded 56,000 trade visitors with 70% returning. That’s reason enough to invest in an exhibition booth and attend. It’s a guarantee all expenses are earned back on the first day.
As EuroBLECH prepares for its first edition since the pandemic started, organisers report a great interest from previous exhibitors. The early exhibitor registrations promise that EuroBLECH will most likely reach pre-pandemic numbers. Here is what we know:
- 1257 international exhibitors from 39 countries;
- 88,000 square metres of exhibition space;
Open to professional visitors only, EuroBLECH has been running for exactly half a century with its very first edition going back to 1969 and since then the exhibition has been documenting major technological breakthroughs in the field. Editions are held once every two years and the tendency is for each new edition to grow ever bigger.
In terms of technologies explored, groups run the full processing chain – CAD, CAM, metal semi-finished products, research, quality assurance, recycling, separation technology, sheet metal processing, machine elements, storage, used machines and work safety. The list goes on and on as you can see. It’s the perfect place to position yourself near related products and benefit from cross-sale potential.
In keeping with the time and evolving technologies, EuroBLECH has now expanded on its product portfolio and will dedicate a brand new exhibition hall to joining technology. As e-mobility grows as a market and many of the processes in general industrial sectors refine over time, joining technology expands its role and EuroBLECH reflects this as best as possible. You’ll be able to discover all the latest technologies and solutions. Expanding the exhibition’s format means new exhibitors and a flow of new visitors, who have never before attended. What more do you need as an exhibitor?
Rather than just seeking out products and hardware, customers are looking for solutions. In this case, what they mean is more than just equipment and machinery. It’s a mixture of hardware and software. Software has risen in importance significantly over the years, which will fundamentally change the landscape in years to come!
Who Are You Going to Meet?
EuroBLECH is populated by suppliers of machinery, tools and technological solutions from all over the world. Germany leads the charge, which is to be expected from the host country, though the numbers have grown for international exhibitors as well with a strong presence from Europe.
In terms of visitors, the countries with major numbers include Italy, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Spain, Turkey, India, Great Britain, Poland, Austria and Belgium. The exhibition has increased its popularity with Central and Far East Asia. Both exhibitors and visitors come from China, Japan and South Korea. If you want to break into new markets, then this is the best possible way to get results with minimal expenses. Most visitors come to source new products and reconnect with their current business partners.
The quality of visitors is undeniable. Exhibitors meet face to face with buyers, design engineers, production and quality managers, researchers and other technical experts from all management levels and business types. A current trend is investing in new technologies in order to respond to the demands for cost-efficient and sustainable production. All these elements create the perfect storm to launch new products and generate buzz for your brand.
Because sheet metalworking and metal processing have such wide applications, EuroBLECH has a multi-sector appeal. You can easily diversify your revenue stream by pitching to buyers from all kinds of industries – the automotive, shipbuilding, electronics, the medical, HVAC, renewable energy construction, rolling mills, electrical engineering, aerospace and packaging.
Additional Value of Attending
It’s one thing to have a booth and talk about your products to prospective buyers. It’s another thing altogether to demonstrate their strengths and features in real time. EuroBLECH cements its place as a key B2B sourcing platform due to its commitment to live machine demonstrations and technological world premieres. Engage with customers by tapping into all their senses and have them interact with your equipment and solutions. It’s why no digital exhibition comes close to the effectiveness of EuroBLECH as a platform for marketing and product positioning. Premieres get you noticed in the best way possible!
The Outlook for 2022
It’s been four years since the last EuroBLECH took place and it’s high time that the industry comes back together again. The upcoming edition 2022 has stakeholders and exhibitors talking and the enthusiasm is infectious. So far exhibitors have shared that interest in stand space is consistently high, which signals a good turnout in the end. Part of the reason why is because much has changed technologically speaking over the course of four years. Exhibitors want to demonstrate what they have done during this pause. EuroBLECH 2022 will restart the industry as a whole!
