Roland Bleinroth, president of Messe Stuttgart
— a major organiser of trade fairs — said the Chinese market became even more important for machinery and plant manufacturing companies during the Covid-19 pandemic, and that companies operating in China expect their turnover to rise by 17% in 2021.
“The German engineering industry, digital and intelligent production, and ‘green manufacturing’ have long left behind any pandemic-related ‘downturns’ in their order books. They are again looking to the future with great optimism. China was and remains a sought-after partner country for the entire spectrum of high-tech industries that will be covered by the new AMTech
In conjunction with its Chinese subsidiary, Messe Stuttgart will hold AMTech
— the International Advanced Manufacturing Technology Exhibition — in Shenzhen (China) from 11 to 14 October 2021.
The event is also being supported by 21 industrial associations from the Greater Bay Area (the Chinese ‘Silicon Valley’) — one of the most modern ‘innovation and technology’ centres in China. The exhibition will be accompanied by AMC2021
, the ‘World Advanced Manufacturing Conference’. AMTech
will cover the entire industrial production chain and will present solutions for metal-working, as well as tool and mould making. Exhibitors will present solutions for ‘future-oriented production’ with the emphasis on digital and intelligent production along with ‘green manufacturing’.
Mr Bleinroth added: “AMTech
is ideally located in one of the most advanced and fastest-growing industrial centres in China. The new Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Centre will be the ideal setting for this new event, which will assume its fixed place in the global exhibition calendar right from the start.”
The German Federal Ministry of Economics is supporting the exhibition with a joint German stand. Wilfried Schäfer, managing director of the VDW (the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association), said: “We are delighted that an exhibition for advanced technology is being held in southern China. The region is home to a large number of high-tech companies, and the general forecast is for vibrant demand for future technologies in the region with good sales opportunities for German solutions.”
Exhibitors already confirmed include: Trumpf, Siemens, Priminer Werkzeugmaschinen, Iscar, TDM Systems, GF Machining Solutions, Fanuc, Yamazaki Mazak, Heidenhain, Sandvik Coromant, Bystronic and Hurco. Further information is available at the website (www.messe-stuttgart.de/amtech
