GrindingHub launches digital platform in year between events 

April 2023

Live, innovative and brimming with know-how – the new digital GrindingHub platform. The trade fair organizer VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association), in cooperation with the IndustryArena business network, offers the grinding technology industry a top-tier platform under the 360°SPECIAL brand – even in the years when no trade fair is held. On 23 May 2023, companies will have the opportunity to pitch their new products and technologies to an international online audience and make contact with potential customers. The event will be presided over by an expert moderator and also include scientific presentations on current topics.

Dr. Wilfried Schäfer, Executive Director of VDW, fills in the background: "2022 saw the successful launch of GrindingHub as a new event for the grinding technology sector. From the very beginning, it was conceived as a hybrid event that extends beyond the times of the trade fair itself in Stuttgart. Our aim here is to offer exhibitors and visitors genuine added value." Last year’s “GrindingHub digital” already demonstrated the effectiveness of the concept with its numerous digital features – including web sessions, video clips and forum contributions – which were used 28 companies. Indeed, over half of the approximately 9,500 visitors took advantage of these opportunities.

From small and medium-sized companies to global players - the digital offerings at GrindingHub provide the right format for all exhibitors. Ariane Wahrmann, Head of Marketing at the German start-up Spanflug Technologies GmbH from Rattenkirchen, can also confirm this: „As a newcomer to GrindingHub 2022, the digital offering was a very valuable addition to our presence at the show. Especially for our digital solutions for automated quoting, the Web-Sessions are a great format to present innovative concepts and generate additional leads.”Interested companies can register now for the 360°SPECIAL. The numbers of pitches is limited. Application forms, conditions of participation, further information as well as the videos from the previous digital events are available at _
