Ceramitec 2015: Organisers anticipate highest ever level of international participation
May 8, 2015
With just over six months to go before opening its gates, the organisers of Ceramitec, the world’s largest international exhibition on ceramic technology, have stated that international exhibitor participation will exceed the high levels achieved at the last event in the series, held in 2012.
The event takes place in Munich, Germany, from October 20-23, 2015.
To-date, exhibitors from both European and non-European countries have booked 27% more space than 2012 and Korea will take part for the first time in Ceramitec’s 35-year history. “Optimism has returned to the ceramics industry.
This trend is clearly indicated by the growth of the exhibition space of Ceramitec 2015. The international growth is also noticeable compared to the 2012 registration period. In 2015, almost 60% of the exhibitors will come from abroad,” stated the organisers.
A growth rate of 43% has been given for the Technical Ceramics area, which traditionally attracts a high level of participation from specialists in Ceramic Injection Moulding. It was also stated that the Powder Metallurgy area has recorded growth of 28%.
“The positive development of Ceramitec is reflecting the market situation and the even greater international mix proves that the ceramics industry sees Ceramitec as an international key trade show. In view of the forthcoming event, this makes me more than confident,” stated Gerhard Gerritzen, Deputy Managing Director of Messe München.
PIM International will once again be exhibiting at Ceramitec, with additional distribution of our September 2015 issue (Vol. 9 No. 3) at key locations in the exhibition hall.
