GrindTec 2010: Further internationalisation of the European meeting for this sector foreseen. The new exhibition hall creates optimal conditions for targeted further development.
For the GrindTec it has now become almost „Business as usual“. It was already the sixth consecutive time that the leading forum for grinding technology increased both the figures for exhibitors and those for visitors. 11,070 visitors (+ 19 %) and 355 exhibitors (+ 22 %) are the current benchmarks. At the GrindTec 2010 it is intended to continue to increase these figures, however, without softening the sharp profile of this specialised trade fair all about grinding technology. Exhibits for cylinder, surface, profile and centreless grinding can also be presented, as long as there is a connection to tool grinding or to the manufacture of tools and cutting tools. The motor driving this development is the continuous internationalisation of the trade fair, at which 25 countries participated at the last event – and at the premiere in 1998 it was just 6 countries.
Optimal presentation opportunity on 8,000 m²
It is planned that the new Exhibition Hall 5 will be ready for use by autumn 2009, which creates an important factor for the continuous development of the GrindTec. The new exhibition hall has no columns at all; it is possible to drive heavy duty vehicles across the 105 x 75 m ground surface; it has an effective height of 10 m and the most modern equipment. The new exhibition hall 5 offers exhibitors the optimal surroundings for their presentations in an area of just under 8,000 m².
A large 2,000 m² foyer, with space for more exhibitors and with all the necessary infrastructural equipment, will complete the largest exhibition hall in the Augsburg trade fair centre, a perfect connection between halls 3 and 7.
Preparations for the GrindTec 2010 have begun
At the beginning of 2010 the documentation for the participation at the next GrindTec will be mailed, accompanied by advertisements in important trade publications from the sector. It is planned to start with planning booth positions in the exhibition halls in September. Although there is no official deadline, obviously anyone with concrete ideas regarding the position of their stand should not wait too long with their application form. In fact, a large amount of exhibitors from the previous GrindTec have already signalled their great interest in maintaining their favourite positions. The documentation for participation is available for downloading in the internet at www.grindtec.de.
