Within a context of dynamism and the first signs of recovery, BIEMH-International Machine-Tool Biennial Exhibition is getting ready to return to Bilbao Exhibition Centre from 13th to 17th June 2022 with its usual essence, but reinforced. The event is an international benchmark and one of the leading industrial meetings in Europe.
This year round, it will offer its best version to become a meeting platform and space that inspires trust and motivation, fostering networking and innovation, business and new opportunities. This is set out in its new claim, MORE BIEMH THAN EVER, chosen to express BIEMH’s commitment as a forum promoting the economic revitalisation of the sector.
The event’s strategic goals and priority lines of action are already on the table after the BIEMH Technical Advisory Committee met at BEC facilities recently. The main items on the Committee’s agenda were confirmation of dates, presentation of the image and claim for the 2022 edition and definition of the promotion and organisational milestones.
The situation of the machine-tool sector was also analysed at the meeting, whereby it presents a positive outlook following a complicated period. Orders have been enjoying a significant recovery since last October, with figures similar to those of 2019 during these first four months of the year. The AFM foresight panels point towards a strong growth in orders of around 25% for the whole of 2021.
The soundness of BIEMH is a clear reflection of the strength of its exhibitors, which are at the forefront of technological breakthroughs and tailor-made solutions. Therefore, the usual slogan that accompanies the brand, “You make it big”, will be transformed into “You make it big again” in this edition. With this, the BIEMH organising team wishes to thank once again all those companies who participate in the event year after year for their commitment, loyalty and ambition.
The campaigns to capture exhibitors and visitors will pass on this message and kick off next July and September, respectively. For the former, commercial efforts will focus on countries like Germany, Austria, Belgium, China, France, the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Portugal, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Taiwan and Turkey, in addition to Spain. All these are leaders in the sector, who have consolidated their presence in this technologically advanced showcase.
Representatives of AFM-Advanced Manufacturing Technologies and Bilbao Exhibition Centre, entities co-organising the exhibition, participated in the Technical Advisory Committee meeting, as well as members of AIMHE– Machine Tool Importers Association of Spain, an entity participating as a collaborator, along with the Basque Government.
