The International Advanced Manufacturing Technology Exhibition will take place in Shenzhen, China, on October 11–14, 2021, and held by Messe Stuttgart in cooperation with its Chinese subsidiary. The event is also being supported by twenty-one industrial associations from the Chinese ‘Silicon Valley’. AMTech will be accompanied by AMC2021, the World Advanced Manufacturing Conference.
The Chinese market has become increasingly important for machinery and plant manufacturing companies during the COVID-19 pandemic; the companies operating in the country are said to be expecting their turnover to rise by 17% in 2021.
Roland Bleinroth, president of Messe Stuttgart, stated, “China was, and remains, a sought-after partner country for the entire spectrum of high-tech industries covered by the new exhibition AMTech. With its many years of experience on international markets, Messe Stuttgart is pleased to support the positioning of AMTech as a leading exhibition in its segment.”
AMTech will cover the entire industrial production chain and will present solutions for metal working and tool & mould making. Exhibitors will present solutions for future-oriented production with the emphasis on digital & intelligent production alongside green manufacturing. Other focal points will be the industrial Internet of Things and intelligent indoor logistics and warehousing.
“The objectives and industries covered by AMTech ideally correspond to our expertise in Germany, Europe and the rest of the world,” continued Bleinroth. “AMTech is also ideally positioned in one of the most advanced and fastest growing industrial centres in China; the industrial alliance behind AMTech is very impressive and will guarantee great success. The new Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Centre will, naturally, be the ideal setting for this new platform which will assume its fixed place in the global exhibition calendar right from the start.”
At the initiative of the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association (VDW), AMTech has been included in the foreign trade fair and exhibition programme of the German Federal Ministry of Economics. The Ministry is supporting the new exhibition format with a joint German stand.
“We are delighted that an exhibition for advanced technology is also being held in southern China; the region is home to a large number of high-tech companies. The general forecast is for vibrant demand for future technologies in the region with good sales opportunities for German solutions,” commented Dr Wilfried Schäfer, Managing Director of the VDW.
There is reportedly great interest in AMTech within the industry: a large number of exhibitors have already booked their stands, including world market leaders and small- and medium-sized businesses. Confirmed exhibitors include: TRUMPF, Siemens, Priminer Werkzeugmaschinen, ISCAR, TDM Systems, GF Machining Solutions, FANUC, Yamazaki MAZAK, HEIDENHAIN, Sandvik Coromant, Bystronic and HURCO, with more to come in the following weeks.
