World’s leading trade fair for production technology posting high registration numbers

November 2022

With the deadline just two weeks away, more than 1,000 exhibitors have already registered for EMO Hannover 2023. "We are delighted to see such a great response from the international companies after the event’s four-year hiatus," says Martin Göbel, Head of Trade Fairs at EMO organizer VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association), Frankfurt am Main. Big-name companies from 36 countries have already signed up to attend. 64 percent of the registered companies come from abroad. After Germany, other major exhibiting nations include Italy, Taiwan and Switzerland.

"Following the pandemic, manufacturers of production technology are overjoyed to be able to present their products and services in person to their customers once again – to discuss and negotiate with them, and ultimately to conclude deals with them," explains Göbel from the VDW. A similar receptiveness and buoyant atmosphere have already been seen at other major trade fairs in different sectors.

There is certainly a great need for investment. Despite all the current difficulties and the associated uncertainty regarding the coming year, face-to-face meetings on an international platform can help to consolidate relationships, provide reassurance and pave the way for cooperation.

The official registration period ends on 1 December 2022. "That gives plenty of time to all those who haven’t made up their mind yet," Goebel says.
