Hanover, Germany - EuroBLECH 2010, the 21st International Technology Exhibition for Sheet Metal Working, will be held October 26-30 Hanover, where it will be the focus of the global sheet metal working industry for its role as the world’s leading trade exhibition and trend barometer for this industry sector. After a difficult year, the latest economic outlook and forecast from the most important associations in this industry branch give reason for cautious optimism.

Exhibiting will be 1,100 companies from 37 countries occupying 77,000 m2 in net exhibition space. Given the current difficult economic situation, this gives a very positive picture, as it corresponds with the booking status of the previous very successful EuroBLECH 2006 show.

With its motto “Time for Innovation” EuroBLECH will focus upon research and development, cutting-edge technologies, and sophisticated solutions. The show will again occupy halls 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 27 at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds in a layout that represents the 15 product categories of the show, including sheet metal, semi-finished and finished products, handling, separation, forming/flexible sheet metal working, joining/welding and surface technologies. Tools, process and quality control systems, CAD/CAM applications plus factory equipment, safety at work, and R&D complete the range of products on display. Once again laser sheet metal cutting is expected be a crowd-drawing technology, especially the new fiber laser powered cutting systems.

EuroBLECH 2010 will again be a very international show with exhibitors from all over the world. Forty-five percent of the 1,100 exhibiting companies that have already booked their stands are from outside Germany. The exhibition is known for its high numbers in international trade visitors: From a total of 69,400 visitors at the previous show, 35% came from outside Germany.
