EMO Hannover 2013 boasts record numbers

About 145,000 international trade visitors attended EMO Hannover 2013 – the most important trade fair worldwide for machine tools.

The six-day exhibition, held in Germany last month, featured more than 2,100 exhibitors from 100 different countries.

Exhibitors showcased their innovations to industrial users from around the world under the event’s keynote slogan of Intelligence in Production.

“This year’s EMO raised the bar in all areas,” said EMO General Commissioner Carl Martin Welcker at the close of the fair.

“With more visitors, more business and more international drawing power, this EMO has proven even more successful than last time around.”

Foreign visitors numbered more than 50,000, or one in three, with attendance from Europe up markedly.

“European industry is rebounding, and keen on investing in manufacturing technology,” Welcker noted.

Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, the Netherlands and Russia topped the attendance figures for the European continent.

By a very wide margin, China accounted for the largest number of visitors from Asia, followed by Japan, Taiwan and India.

According to a visitor survey, one out of every two attendees had a managerial status, with the authority to make purchasing decisions for their organizations. They reported their main motivation in attending as wanting to expand and modernize their production machinery.

One out of every five visitors reported placing an order at the show.

With an order intake of €276.4 million ($A401 million) and 1,137 products sold, German based Gildemeister/DMG Mori Seiki achieved a record figure at the trade fair for machine tools.

The Gildemeister/DMG Mori Seiki group was the largest exhibitor at EMO.

The orders placed at this year’s EMO confirm the growing demand for machine tools overall.

The next EMO will be staged in Milan, Italy from October 5-10 2015, under the motto: “Let’s build the future.”
