EuroBLECH 2016 reflects trend towards smart manufacturing in sheet metal working

From 25 – 29 October 2016, EuroBLECH 2016 will open its doors in Hanover, Germany. The exhibition will once again be the meeting place for sheet metal working professionals from all over the world looking to find enhanced machinery and innovative production solutions. Visitors will be able to discover an extensive variety of products, from conventional systems to high-tech solutions, and gain an insight into the latest technological advancements in sheet metal working. With this year’s theme “The New Generation of Sheet Metal Working”, EuroBLECH 2016 reflects the trend towards digitalisation and smart manufacturing in modern sheet metal processing. Five months ahead of the show, the organisers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions, have announced a further increase in exhibition space for the world’s leading trade show for this industry sector.


A total of 1,410 exhibitors from 40 countries have already secured their stand space at this year’s EuroBLECH, the 24th International Sheet Metal Working Technology Exhibition, covering a net exhibition space of 89,000 square metres across eight halls at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds. This represents an increase in net floor space of 3% compared with the previous exhibition and reflects the fact that exhibiting companies have booked bigger stands to demonstrate an even larger choice of enhanced machinery and cutting-edge solutions. Major exhibitor countries are Germany, Italy, China, Turkey, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain and Austria. EuroBLECH is traditionally renowned as a highly international event. The previous exhibition was more international than ever, with 52% of exhibitors and 37% of visitors coming from outside Germany. A total of 59,618 trade visitors from 105 countries attended the event in 2014.
