Chongqing International Expo Center, Yubei, Chongqing, China. AMT - The Association for Manufacturing Technology and the China Machine Tool and Tool Builders' Association (CMTBA) have announced the launch of the China Chongqing International Machine Tool Show (CCIMT) to be held Nov. 13 - 16, 2017.
CCIMT will showcase the latest in manufacturing technology and bring buyers and sellers together from all over the world to the dynamic market of Chongqing and southwest China. With an expanding manufacturing base of domestic companies plus more than 250 Fortune 500 multinationals, Chongqing has established itself as an innovation center for high technology.
Chongqing's economic growth was 11 percent in 2015, the fastest growth among 31 provinces in China. Chongqing is China's largest automotive producer, largest laptop computer manufacturing center and a major motorcycle manufacturing location. More than 600 local companies specialize in making motorcycle and related parts with annual motorcycle engine production exceeding 10 million units, of which about 15 percent are exported to overseas markets.
AMT President Douglas Woods stated, "We are thrilled to partner with China's leading manufacturing technology association, CMTBA, to create a world-class manufacturing technology event in the robust industrial city of Chongqing. Our combined research recognizes that Chongqing is a major production hub, and in the past 10 years we have seen more than 2,000 companies emerge-creating a huge expansion in the number of potential buyers for manufacturing technology products. AMT and CMTBA have been friends and colleagues since the first CIMT show in 1989, and this collaboration represents a new level of commitment between our two organizations."
CMTBA President Huiren Chen stated, "This collaboration between CMTBA and AMT is a win-win cooperation, based on the common recognition on the market situation of the city of Chongqing and China's southwest area as well as the longtime friendship between the two parties. CMTBA has a wide influence over China's machine tool industry, and close connection with member companies and end-users. AMT is the leading manufacturing technology organization in member service and trade show management. We are confident that, together with the close relationship of the two parties with machine tool manufacturers globally, CCIMT will turn out to be a world-class event."
CCIMT is expected to fill 46,000 square meters of exhibition space with a target attendance of 50,000 coming from foreign countries, including the United States.
