EuroBLECH 2022 plans October return to live event format in Hanover

The 26th edition of the International Sheet Metal Working Technology Exhibition, EuroBLECH 2022, will take place 25-28 October 2022 in Hanover, Germany. Organiser Mack-Brooks Exhibitions has confirmed that the world’s largest trade event for sheet metal processing will go ahead as planned and reports a surge in demand for stand space. The organiser reports the current exhibitor list stands at 1,257 companies from 39 nations, covering a total net exhibition space of over 88,000sqm.

For the first time, EuroBLECH will feature a ninth exhibition hall focusing on joining technology, one of the significant growth markets in the e-mobility and general industrial sectors. 

Starting this October, the show will also resume its usual biennial event cycle.

“There is a genuine sense of relief and excitement within the industry – it’s been four years since our last live show, so EuroBLECH 2022 is widely perceived as a much-needed technological update for the entire sheet metal processing sector,” says Evelyn Warwick, event director.

“EuroBLECH has always been the industry’s key marketplace where everything and everyone comes together, and this year’s edition provides a particularly important booster to kick-start or renew business growth.”

EuroBLECH 2022 will be occupying halls 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 26 and 27 at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds, the world’s largest exhibition centre.

Exhibits cover the entire sheet metal working technology chain in the manufacturing of metal prototypes, industrial components and consumer parts. 

EuroBLECH exhibitors come from around the globe and range from innovative start-ups and SMEs to big internationals. This year’s top exhibiting countries are Germany, Italy, Turkey, Switzerland, China, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Poland and France.

“We are really looking forward to the buzz and excitement on the show floor,” Warwick adds. “In the end, nothing beats human interaction: A face-to-face conversation, a live demonstration, a fist bump – all this is important to establish good relationships and build trust. We are delighted that EuroBLECH will once again provide a physical platform where tech buyers can meet and connect with world-leading suppliers and innovators in the industry.”

The previous EuroBLECH 2018 attracted 56,301 international trade visitors.
