Why Your Visit Is Worth It
One of the key reasons why you should consider METEC is the fact that are few exhibitors to be your competition for attention and deal negotiation all the while you have a thriving audience that is invested in the technologies on display. Have a look at the attendance rates from last edition to see for yourself:
- 500+ international exhibitors showcased at the event;
- 17,000+ international trade visitors made the trip;
- 35,000+ square metres of exhibition space used.
METEC is a highly specialized trade fair that takes place in Düsseldorf every four years. It’s the definitive platform for metallurgy innovations and industry on the territory of Europe and that’s a great strength when trying to take your business to a whole new level. Founded in 1979, the fair enjoys respectability and brings in additional attention from the fact it shares the stage with three other fairs: GIFA (foundry technology), THERMPROCESS (thermal processes) and NEWCAST (casting products). The exhibition space is dedicated to the entire value chain. Product categories include reduction plants, rolling mills, blast furnaces, casting machines, ore processing plants, coke plants, scrap processing plants, coal preparation plants, drawing lines, funding equipment and extrusion. Additional value is gained from the in-depth support program that offers lectures and seminars on a breadth of topics.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
METEC is skewed more or less towards the German market, which is fairly typical for German-based exhibitions. Only 143 exhibitors originate from abroad, whereas the divide between local and international trade visitors lies somewhere closer to the middle, but with a slight majority for German professionals. If we’re to break down the nationality of international visitors, then we see that the majority comes mostly from Europe, which is closely followed by countries in the far East like China, Korea and Japan. The industrial sectors we see most representation from are the following – iron and steel production, mechanical engineering and toolmaking, plant engineering, steelworks and export trade among others.
