GrindTec 2016: Growing interest from Asian companies

The interest shown by Asian suppliers of grinding technology is growing visibly. More and more companies from China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan see the GrindTec as the perfect platform for the presentation of their products. And the amount of space they need for their stands is also growing. The large manufacturers from Germany, Italy and Switzerland also require more space for their stands, which are becoming more and more elaborate.


At present the project management has received about 470 registrations, and expects to soon reach the 520 exhibitors of the last, so far biggest GrindTec in 2014. At any rate it is certain that the GrindTec will grow overall: The organisers AFAG Messen und Ausstellungen GmbH have planned 42,000 m² for the GrindTec 2016.

All the leading grinding technology companies will be there in Augsburg

The most important companies from this sector have registered long ago, and many of them have considerably enlarged the space booked. For a large number of them the GrindTec is the most important trade fair – this is where they achieve top results, as most recently during the GrindTec 2014: 75 % of the exhibitors assessed their participation as “very good” or “good”, and a further 17 % were “satisfied”.

Hall planning mainly concluded

Weeks ago the planning of the exhibition halls began: The largest stands have been allocated their positions, and smaller stands are available in parts of the halls, although these, too, are slowly filling up too. All companies, which are interested in exhibiting, should contact the project management without delay, in particular if they have any special requests with regard to their positions. The documentation for participants can also be downloaded from the homepage of the GrindTec at The project manager reminds all participants that it is very important to name all products, which are to be exhibited, in your application form. Without this information it will not be possible for you to participate in the GrindTec 2016.
