The postponement of the Spanish trade show also applies to the ADDIT3D, BeDigital, IMIC and Workinn events, which were planned to be held in parallel with BIEMH.
The International Machine Tool Exhibition, or BIEMH, has been postponed from its original dates in May to November 23 to 27, 2020. The decision to postpone the Spanish event was in response to the World Health Organisation’s declaration of a public health emergency with the spread of the coronavirus internationally. The postponement also applies to the ADDIT3D, BeDigital, IMIC and Workinn events, which were planned to be held in parallel with BIEMH.
The organising committee of BIEMH includes the Bilbao Exhibition Centre, Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AFM) and the Machine Tool Importers Association of Spain (AIMHE).
Bilbao, Spain is the city where BIEMH is held every two years
“By taking this difficult decision, Bilbao Exhibition Centre has adopted the principle of responsibility required by the current situation, in which the containment of the disease is a priority objective and the conditions required to hold an event of this nature with the required safety are not in place,” organisers report.
“As a result, the priority of the team organising BIEMH is to offer the machine tool and advanced manufacturing sector an appealing event from a commercial and economic perspective, but an event that is also safe from a health point of view. For this reason, BIEMH will intensify its efforts to fulfil the commitment made to its customers with a successful 31st edition in November 2020, where companies can showcase and learn about the most advanced technology and services and do business.”
