Countdown to EMO Hannover 2013

The EMO Hannover, which opens its doors in Germany from September 16-21, will feature more than 2000 exhibitors.

EMO Hannover is the world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector.

International manufacturers will showcasing their products, solutions and services relating to metal as a material, under the theme Intelligence in Production. 

“The EMO Hannover will once again be an event of superlatives for our sector,” said Carl Martin Welcker, General Commissioner of the EMO Hannover 2013.

By the end of June, about 2,030 companies had registered for the exhibition to be held over 177,600 sqm.

About 60 per cent of exhibitors are from 39 countries, with the remainder from Germany.

About 20 percent (more than 430 firms) are from Asia.

“For every machine tool manufacturer who wants to do business on the international scene, participating in the EMO Hannover is an absolute must”, said Welcker.

In the past 20 years up to 2012, international consumption of machine tools has tripled, according to latest figures.

This growth has been driven primarily by Asia, where in 2012 about 60 percent of total international tool production output was consumed.

This year, a further 2 percent rise is predicted to a record volume equating to 68 billion euros ($A97 million).

And machine tool consumption is accordingly set to grow by 10 percent in 2014.
