Mack Brooks Exhibitions, the organiser of EuroBLECH
, has announced a new online event for the international sheet metal-working community in order to help the industry ‘pave and shape the way back to recovery’ from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The wEuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit
— being held 27-30 October 2020 — has been designed to provide a dedicated virtual marketplace for “innovative manufacturing solutions, knowledge transfer and world-wide business contacts in a new online format”. At the same time, it conveniently bridges the ‘big wait’ for the physical EuroBLECH event, which has been postponed to March 2021.
Evelyn Warwick, exhibition director of EuroBLECH
, said: “When the decision was taken to postpone EuroBLECH
, the world’s largest sheet metal-working technology exhibition, as a result of the Covid-19 crisis, we were determined to fill the gap and put all our energies into developing a powerful and focused online event that can offer a similarly high level of attraction to buyers.
“The EuroBLECH 2018
in Hanover attracted 56,307 international trade visitors and a total of 1,507 exhibitors from 40 countries, so our new virtual summit can build upon a very successful real-life event.
This includes the huge EuroBLECH
community of sheet metal-working professionals and technology providers that have attended or exhibited at our shows over the years.
As such, the Digital Innovation Summit
gives industry specialists and buyers world-wide online access to this expert community, enabling them to witness technological innovation and product launches, hear insider views about the latest market trends and opportunities, and use matchmaking and meeting facilities.”
