The AMB project team is starting the trade fair year 2018 with a new line-up: After the departure of Sabrina Sledzinski, Florian Schmitz is moving to AMB with immediate effect. As Project Manager, Schmitz will in future be responsible for the area of machine tools for the international exhibition for metal working. He completes the trade fair team with Romy Arnold, Project Manager for precision tools and peripherals, and Nadine Trester, Project Coordinator for AMB.
The AMB Project Management team is again complete and is getting fit for the AMB year 2018. From left to right: Nadine Trester, Project Coordinator; Florian Schmitz, Project Manager; Romy Arnold, Project Manager.
From 2009 to 2012, Schmitz completed his DHBW studies of trade fair and congress management at Messe Stuttgart. In the following years, he worked as a Project Coordinator for the Lasys and TV TecStyle Vision trade fairs. Since 2014, together with Florian Niethammer, he has been in joint charge of project management for Moulding Expo, the international trade fair for tool, pattern and mould making. In future, Schmitz will be in charge of machine tools for both Moulding Expo and AMB.
In the business division Industrial Solutions at Messe Stuttgart, six industrial trade fairs are currently being organised at the Stuttgart location: AMB, CastForge, elect!, Moulding Expo, Lasys and Vision. In the two previous years, in total 3,207 exhibitors and 125,660 specialist visitors were counted on a gross surface area of 204,990 m2. With AMB Iran and “Lasys meets”, Messe Stuttgart also organises internationally successful industrial trade fairs and events abroad.
Around 90,000 international trade visitors and 1,500 exhibitors are expected to attend AMB 2018 in Stuttgart from 18 to 22 September. On a gross exhibition area of more than 120,000 square metres, the exhibitors will showcase innovations and further developments for metal-cutting and metal-removing process machine tools, precision tools, measuring systems and quality assurance, robots, workpiece and tool handling, industrial software & engineering, components, assemblies and accessories.
