In 2013, Hanover will once again be hosting the EMO. From 16 to 21 September, all the sector's important international players will be meeting up at the world's premier trade fair for the metalworking sector. Under the motto "Intelligence in Production", the EMO will be showing what modern-day production technology looks like and who is offering it.
"Everyone wants to be there. That's why once again the EMO Hannover is well set to continue its success story", says Carl Martin Welcker, General Commissioner of the EMO Hannover 2013. At the beginning of the year, more than 1,600 companies from 34 different countries had already registered: they will be occupying around 145,000 m² of net exhibition space. Thus the current registration status is significantly higher than the comparable figure for the preceding event.
The demand among vendors of production technology evidences the high perceived importance of the EMO Hannover as one of the sector's international highlights and as a superlative platform for innovations. "Meet the world at EMO" is one of the most important arguments for participating. It's not only German manufacturers who have registered for large-size stands. Asian companies are particularly prominent in showing the flag, firms from Japan, China, Taiwan and Korea who are keen to play a bigger role on the global market. They have once again upsized their areas compared to the preceding event's equivalent period, a trend that's been observable for some years now. In all, Asia currently accounts for a good fifth of the EMO's exhibitors.
