AMB 2020 trade fair fully booked again
by David Fleschen
The registration phase for AMB 2020 ended on 30 June 2019. The project team is now starting to examine the applications received and is preparing the first placement proposals for the stands. "The AMB is an integral part of the calendar of events in the industry. This is also demonstrated by the high demand for exhibition space at AMB 2020, "explains Gunnar Mey, Head of Industry at Messe Stuttgart. There is no doubt that the 20th AMB, taking place from 15 to 19 September 2020 at Messe Stuttgart, will be fully booked again and the entire exhibition grounds will be occupied.
But what makes AMB so attractive to exhibitors and visitors over the years? Four companies, which were already in 1982, report their connection to the AMB.
Lothar Horn, Managing Director of Paul Horn GmbH, sees a special connection to AMB: "We are closely connected with AMB and have grown steadily together. In 1982 we were still exhibiting locally as a small Swabian company, today we present ourselves as the world market leader for precision tools. The AMB is like our own living room to greet our customers and sets the benchmark of what we want to show in novelties and innovations ".
The AMB is clearly the core of the machine tool industry and the ideal industry meeting point in southern Germany reports Holger Hehl, area sales manager Chiron-Werke GmbH & Co. KG and adds: "Here, all world market leaders present their new products and here we have the platform to customers and prospects to show the chipping in detail ".
Werner Gerstner, Sales Manager at Carl Zeiss AG, was already present at the very first AMB in 1982 and is still convinced of the trade fair concept. "The AMB has always set accents and witnessed many technology changes. All important topics are dealt with here and exhibitors show which solutions they have for example to e-mobility, Industry 4.0 or Internet of Things in their portfolio ".
Antonio Bottazzo, Sales Manager of Fritz Studer AG, a member of the United Grinding Group, can only confirm the further development of the national trade fair for the international metalworking exhibition: "AMB has developed consistently over the years and today attracts trade visitors from all over the world to Stuttgart" ,
Companies that submitted their application as of 30 June 2019 will receive initial placement proposals from autumn 2019 onwards. Interested companies that have not registered by the deadline can be put on the waiting list for the time being due to the high demand.
