EuroBLECH 2020 adds ninth hall for first time
The 26th iteration of the biennial international sheet metal working show EuroBLECH will feature an extra exhibition hall when it takes place on 27-30 October in Hannover, Germany.
The additional space brings the total number of halls up to nine for the first time in the show’s history, according to organiser Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
Compared to 2018’s event, which covered a total of 89,800m2, more than 95,000m2 of space has already been booked at this year’s event – an almost 6 per cent increase in stand space.
‘The growth to a ninth exhibition hall reflects the increasing demand for stand space at the leading industry event and offers even more capacity for businesses to present their innovations to an international audience’, said Evelyn Warwick, exhibition director of EuroBLECH.
The additional hall – Hall 26 – will host exhibitors of joining technology and fastening technology, as well as exhibitors of surface and tool technology, which were previously located in Hall 13. Hall 13 will now feature exhibitors of separation technologies, flexible sheet metal working technologies, and machine elements and components.
The biggest exhibiting countries this year include Germany, Italy, Turkey, China, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Great Britain and USA.
