The 22nd International Sheet Metal Working Technology Exhibition, EuroBLECH 2012, will take place from 23 – 27 October 2012 in Hanover, Germany. The event is renowned as the leading trade exhibition for this industry sector. The current booking status of this year’s show reflects a significant stabilisation of the sheet metal working industry. Today, some seven months ahead of the opening of the exhibition, a total of 1,235 exhibitors from 38 countries have already reserved their stand space, covering a net exhibition space of 83,000 square metres. These are some 5,000 square metres more than the total exhibition space at the previous event.

“The trend, which had already become apparent during the previous exhibition, has now been confirmed: the industry sector is investing again, and, after one of the worst crisis for this industry, manufacturers and suppliers of machines, materials and systems for sheet metal working are finally able to, once again, witness some planning reliability,” explains Nicola Hamann, Exhibition Director EuroBLECH on behalf of the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions. “Apparently, the sheet metal working industry has recovered, and now presents itself as stabilised, confident and thoroughly positive. Despite some incertitude due to the currency crisis in the Euro zone or the recent developments in some north African and middle Eastern countries, there are generally positive sales prospects for suppliers to the sheet metal working industry; and not only in the growth markets of Asia and South America, but also in many European countries as well as in the USA,” says Nicola Hamann.

As for the exhibitor countries at this year’s EuroBLECH, it is already clear that the exhibition will be able to hold its high percentage of international participants. Almost half of the exhibiting companies that have already booked their stands come from outside Germany, with Italy, Turkey and Switzerland being the biggest exhibitor countries after Germany. According to the current booking status there are also significantly more exhibitors from the USA and China than at the previous exhibition.

EuroBLECH 2012 will again occupy halls 11,12,13,14,15,16,17 and 27 at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds. The exhibition profile represents the entire sheet metal working technology chain: sheet metal, semi-finished and finished products, handling, separation, forming, flexible sheet metal working, joining, welding and surface treatment, processing of hybrid structures, tools, quality control, CAD/CAM systems and R&D.

Featuring an enormous amount of live machinery demonstrations, EuroBLECH is renowned with international sheet metal working professionals as the ideal event to find smart solutions and the right machines, equipment and materials for their companies. A total of 61,500 trade visitors from all over the world attended the previous show.
