LASYS 2014 attendance shows increase

Stuttgart, Germany - The fourth edition of LASYS, the International Trade Fair for Laser Material Processing, produced a 4-percent rise in the number of visitors, with 5500 trade visitors from Germany and abroad who came to Stuttgart to see innovations, advance developments, and trends in laser material processing.

Organizers were pleased with the number of visitors from various user industries, which rose from 76 to 82 percent—helping to underline its claim to being the users' trade fair for the industry.

Almost every third visitor came from the mechanical engineering sector while 17 percent came from motor vehicle construction, followed by the optical, plant and apparatus construction, and metal working and processing industries. This year, almost every fourth visitor came from abroad from a total of 38 countries.

The international origin of the exhibitors also increased, with 34 percent of the 187 coming from 19 countries—primarily from Europe, but also from China, India, Russia, Turkey, and the US. They brought with them innovations and advanced developments in machinery, processes, and services for laser material processing, including laser-specific machine subsystems.

Exhibitors were also pleased that 90 percent of visitors said they were involved in decisions concerning investment and procurement in their companies. Purchase intents rose 77 percent, more than three-quarters intend to invest, and almost every second visitor envisaged making an investment within the next six months. This indicates that the economic situation is currently very positive.

Primarily, visitors were interested in laser production systems for surface technology, bonding technology, marking and labeling technology, and other processes. Visitors were highly satisfied with the presentations made by exhibitors. An impressive 97 percent said they would further recommend LASYS and 92 percent announced they were planning to return to LASYS in 2016.

LASYS 2016 will take place from May 31 to June 3, 2016, again congruent with the automotive trade fairs O&S and parts2clean.
