AMB, the international exhibition for metal working, was a huge success in 2014. For over 80 per cent of AMB exhibitors, it was clear that they want to take part again in 2016 – including many domestic and global market leaders.
A tremendous declaration of loyalty to AMB, which will take place over five days, from 13 to 17 September 2016, in Stuttgart. “The overwhelming demand stresses the character of AMB as the leading trade fair, which in even-numbered years takes pole position in Germany,” says Gunnar Mey, Manager of the Industry department. “With our new hall, which will be completed by 2018, we have set a clear signal for the further expansion of AMB.”
The focus in 2016 will be on novelties and innovations
Current themes, such as improved efficiency, Industry 4.0, increasing intelligence in the machine periphery and possibilities with regard to simulating the machining processes, will be the centre of interest. An attractive accompanying programme with awards for the “Lathe operator of the year”, the “Special show for young people” and the “European MINT Convention” will be additional crowd pullers. The integrated concept of AMB, which takes place in the heart of Germany’s top region for the machine tool and precision tool industry, last year broke new records: With 1,357 exhibitors in nine booked-up halls covering a total area of 109,000 square meters, and over 90,000 visitors, of whom 15% came from abroad,
AMB has clearly established itself as the leading trade fair in Europe and the number one in Germany in each even-numbered year. Registration has begun. “Everyone submitting their documents by 30 June 2015 can expect to take part in AMB 2016,” says Gunnar Mey. The allocation of floor space will start in September.
With AMB China, Messe Stuttgart is further emphasising its international character. AMB China will be taking place for the fifth time from 19 to 22 October 2015 in Nanjing. Last year, AMB China had over 250 exhibitors, of whom 76 came from
abroad, and over 11,000 visitors.
