Record numbers at PTC ASIA


A record 60,000 trade visitors from 80 countries flocked to the recent PTC Asia exhibition – one of the world’s leading trade fairs for power transmission and control technology.

The show, held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in China, featured 1,500 companies showcasing their latest products.

PTC Asia enjoys the support of a number of influential industry associations, such as the German Engineering Federation (VDMA).

The show featured presentations from big-name companies, such as Siemens, Bosch Rexroth, argo-hytos, Eaton, Parker Hannifin, Hydac, Gates, Hawe, KTR, Daikin, KAWASAKI, NOK, SKF, Bonfiglioli and NORD.

“PTC ASIA is one of the world’s leading trade fairs for power transmission and control technology, second in size and scope only to MDA Hannover, said Wolfgang Pech, the Senior Vice President in charge of Deutsche Messe’s foreign trade fair business.

“We are confident that there is still plenty of room for further development, given the size and dynamic growth of the Asian markets,” Mr Pech said.

Over the next two decades, the Chinese market promises a wealth of opportunities for suppliers of hydraulic and pneumatic systems worldwide.

Sweeping changes in the country’s mechanical engineering and manufacturing sectors and the emergence of new, strategically important industries in China will fuel Chinese demand for hydraulic and pneumatic technologies.

PTC Asia is organized by Deutsche Messe and Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai Ltd.

The next PTC Asia show will be held in Shanghai from October 29 to November 1 next year. PTC ASIA is co-located with CeMAT ASIA.
