Blechexpo 2021 is the next installment of Germany’s premier trade fair for sheet metal working. Held once every two years, Blechexpo runs parallel to the international show for joining technology – Schweisstec. In 2021 the trade show duo will be held from 26 to 29 October and will once again offer a full overview of the latest products and technologies in metalworking.
About 1,500 exhibitors will display offerings in categories like precision cutting, stamping and forming, sheet metal processing, module assembly and surface finishing, and treatments for non-ferrous metals. They will have the chance to meet with over 40,000 visitors representing key manufacturing industries and possessing significant purchasing power.
The show also boasts a diverse programme of technical presentations at the Blechexpo Forum, which gives exhibitors more opportunities to show off their innovative products. Blechexpo also hosts the International Expert Meet – a unique platform for high-level exchange of expertise and knowledge that aims to tackle the most pressing industry issues.
The practical trade fair duo of Blechexpo and Schweisstec takes place on a two-year cycle in the state trade fair centre in Stuttgart (Landesmesse Stuttgart) and is the only event in the world that deals with the complementary technologies of sheet metal processing and joining technology. Within the shortest timeframe, Blechexpo has been able to gain a leading position in Europe and now ranks second in the world on the list of trade fairs for sheet metal processing. The Schweisstec international specialist trade fair for joining technology forms the ideal complement. It presents all of the relevant mechanical and thermal joining and connecting procedures as well as thermal welding processes.
