USETEC 2013 returns to April
After the success of this year’s world trade fair for used technology in March, USETEC 2013 (www.usetec.com) will open its doors to the world at the more traditional time in late April; it will take place 22-24 April in Cologne, dovetailing with the dates of the Hannover Fair and the Bauma trade fair (in Munich). This will allow visitors from foreign countries to take in several events in one trip.
Florian Hess, managing director of fair organiser Hess GmbH Weingarten/Baden, said: “For years, we have observed that buyers from far-off countries are very often interested in a number of sectors featured at USETEC. The dates in 2013 allow them to easily combine a visit to the show with an expedition to an additional trade fair.”
USETEC’s technical sponsor, the Trade Association for Machine Tools & Tooling (FDM), welcomed the new date of the event. Managing director Kurt Radermacher said: “Our members were always happy with the April date. It is very important that we have good conditions both in the hall and the outdoor area. After all, it is the variety of used technology on show that makes the event special.”
