AMB Sets Bar High for 2012 Trade Show
April 1, 2011—More visitors, an increasingly international character, a top-quality accompanying program; AMB 2012 has set its sights high. When it opens from September 18-22 2012 in Stuttgart, it wants to surpass the great success of 2010. Then, over 1,300 exhibitors and more than 86,000 visitors came to the exhibition for metal working. "Registration has started and we are receiving requests for placements every day", explains Sengül Altuntas, project manager for machine tools at AMB. Adds Gunnar Mey, project manager for precision tools and peripherals. "AMB has finally developed to become the leading European trade fair for the machine tool and precision tool industry in even years."
The international character of the exhibitors was shown by the fact that 20 to 25 percent came from abroad, while the proportion of foreign visitors increased from seven to eleven percent. They came from 80 countries, a new record. And an indication that AMB is also gaining in importance internationally. Fully booked halls are again expected at AMB 2012, with over 1,300 exhibitors on an exhibition area of 105,000 square metres. Top experts from the promotional supporter associations for AMB-the Precision Tools Association in the VDMA (German Engineering Federation), the VDMA Software Association and the VDW (German Machine Tool Builders' Association) - will ensure technical input.
