EMO Hannover 2011 stimulates new business


EMO Hannover 2011 – the world’s leading international trade fair for the machine tool industry – ended last weekend with exhibitors reporting a big upswing in new orders.

The six-day event attracted some 140,000 visitors from more than 100 countries.

“This EMO was a winner in every respect and has earned top marks from visitors and exhibitors alike,” said EMO Hannover General Commissioner Dr Detlev Elsinghorst.

“EMO Hannover has further expanded its reputation as the flagship fair for the international metalworking industry.”

Dr Elsinghorst said the order volume reached a minimum of €4.5 billion ($A6.2 billion) by the end of the show.

Staged under the motto of Machine Tools & More, the event in Hannover, Germany featured the latest machinery, solutions and services for every conceivable aspect of metalworking from some 2037 exhibitors from 41 different nations.

“EMO has confirmed its international reputation as an unparalleled showcase for innovations. With its remarkable innovative spirit and drive, the industry is clearly making a major contribution to sustainable growth,” Dr Elsinghorst added.

Sustainability in production was the main focus of most innovations and solutions at the event.

The next EMO Hannover is scheduled for September 16-21, 2013.
