Why Your Visit Is Worth It

Because Motek focuses on a smaller niche with a specific profile, while at the same time being relevant for multiple industries, exhibitors at the expo have a better chance to diversify their clients and do not have as much competition. Look at the numbers to see for yourself:

  • 890+ international exhibitors showcased at the event;
  • 34,000+ international visitors made the trip;
  • 60,000 square metres of exhibition space used.

Industry Relevance

The annual exhibition dates back to 1982, when it was first held in Sindelfingen, only then to move to the city of Sinsheim and finally relocate in Stuttgart in 2007 as the event grew and drew a bigger international audience. Now Motek commands the attention of all the big players in Europe and even beyond. The product portfolio is certainly impressive. Exhibitors showcase dismantling machines, assembly machines, grippers, industrial robots, robotic systems, integrated systems and positioning systems among others. In short, you have the entire value chain under one roof, which is valuable for both visitors and exhibitors. You understand where the industry is going. To further help, there are several events like the Microsys Technology Park and Mechatronics Theme Park.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

What’s good about Motek is that it offers ways to diversifying your income streams, because it attracts trade visitors from multiple industries that don’t necessarily have much in common. There are some easy guesses like the machinery and equipment manufacturing industry and the electrical and electronics industries, but you also see representation from the automotive, solar production and medical engineering industries. The makeup of trade visitors is still mainly German with only 24% of the total number coming from 81 other countries, the majority of which are European. The good news is that you have better chances of making sales because there are a lot of board members and managing directors, head of departments and authorized signatories in the audience.
