Meeting place for the MEM industry

Till tomorrow night all eyes in the MEM industry will be on Basel at Prodex and Swisstech on the banks of the Rhine. With its cutting-edge infrastructure, the new exhibition hall promises to provide the perfect platform.

The MEM industry is constantly faced with new challenges as a result of rapid, dynamic and increasingly complex manufacturing processes. Greater efficiency across the board is therefore the order of the day. The hype surrounding 3D printing and “Industry 4.0” also shows no sign of diminishing, and the MEM industry needs to respond to this: not only are the exhibitors showcasing a very extensive range, but the topics will also be tackled in several forums.

Innovations and current trends
Metals and plastics will take it in turns to be the focus of the forum programme at PRODEX and SWISSTECH during the four-day events. Tuesday 18 and Thursday 20 November will be metal-themed days, while Wednesday 19 and Friday 21 will be devoted to plastics. Each morning will feature several interdisciplinary talks on “Professional 3D printing”.

From a concept to a finished product
Modern tools and innovative technologies are making it quicker and easier to develop new products. In the “Product Development” science park, universities and institutions will be showing off their design and construction expertise on each of the four days – from simulations right through to finished products. In the nearby forum, held in the afternoons, the relevant speakers will address the topics of training, research, design and construction in even more detail.

The combined force of Swiss innovation available on one ticket
A joint ticket and strictly segregated hall space ensure that the two top trade fairs are given the perfect setting in the new Hall 1 complex at Messe Basel. Come and experience the combined force of Swiss innovation.

The next Prodex and Swisstech trade fairs will take place from 15 to 18 November 2016 at Messe Basel.
