This year, Indonesia has been guest country of honor of Airtec 2016. There, representatives from politics and economics were represented. An official reception of the State of Bavaria to the honor of Airtec and Euromold 2016, which had been opened by Franz Josef Pschierer, State Secretary in the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology, has shone with 500 guests in the Emperor’s rooms of the Palace and was a highlight for all the international exhibitors and participants of both fairs.

Over 496 exhibitors from 35 nations were represented at both trade fairs, around 60 percent of the exhibitors came from abroad. The increasing international attendance, which is a decisive factor for the business success in the aerospace industry as well for the product development industry, confirms that Airtec and Euromold are highly international trade fairs and this has always been the case from their very beginning.

During the three exhibition days the organizers have reached a number of visitors of 11.571 from 45 nations. 62 % of the visitors came from Germany, 38 % came from abroad. Around one quarter, that means 10 % from the entire visitor number, came from outside Europe.

The common events found a very positive appeal among exhibitors and visitors: “Since seven years we have been exhibiting at Airtec. The move to Munich and the possibility to experience now two shows at one common exhibition place, we consider as a great value for all participants. We will certainly exhibit again next year”, Christoph Martin, managing director from Georg Martin GmbH, a manufacturing company for machine tools and plants.

Also Udo Behrendt, Key Account Manager Aerospace at EOS, remarked many interesting business contacts, which the new exhibition constellation has enabled and that it is quite sure that EOS will be again exhibiting at Airtec 2017.

The visitors of Airtec 2016 represented the entire aerospace industry and came especially from the areas of aircraft manufacturing and aircraft components. From the field of engineering and from research and development and innovation many representatives were registered.

At the international conference 748 conference participants were registered. Especially the New Space Symposium with the keynote of Dr. Gerd Gruppe from the German Aerospace Center DLR as well as the supply chain management summit was completely booked out and was highly appreciated by the attendees. The two days additive manufacturing conference with a panel, where companies like Airbus, with Peter Sander and EOS with Felix Bauer, among other highly qualified speakers, found great resonance.

At Euromold 2016, many visitors came from the automotive industry, product design and engineering as well as from mold-, tool-, and pattern making. Besides, a high number of the visitors came from the aerospace industry, machine tools, production, materials, electronics, consumer goods, life style and marine industry.

10 % of the visitors at Euromold were decision makers, 12 % came from purchasing and 8 % from research & development as well from innovation, 7,5 % from business development and sales and 6,5 % from product management. Hans-Joachim Schott, Managing Director of the software company Schott Systems: “Euromold represents the entire process chain. That, we know and have learned to appreciate very much since the first show has been organized more than twenty years ago. The high international participation is for us one of the most important factors to exhibit every year again. In addition, now the new location Munich is very attractive.”

The organizers, represented by the CEO, Diana Schnabel, drew an overall very positive result: “The decision to connect Airtec and Euromold at one high-tech location in Munich has absolutely been the right step for the exhibitors as well as for the numerous visitors from all over the world. This feedback has been confirmed by many participants and we can already now register plenty of rebooking companies and new booking from interested companies from world-wide – this is the best confirmation for us!” Next year Airtec and Euromold will take place from October 24 – 26, 2017 again at the Exhibition Center Munich, Germany.
