The exhibitors, representatives of partner associations BVMF, VDMA, VDW and
VDWF and Messe Stuttgart jointly decided on setting the time frame in late
spring 2019. Gabriele Urhahn, Head of Marketing/Communication, GF Machining
Solutions, Schorndorf: "In our opinion Moulding Expo 2019 kicks off with
the perfect dates. We are delighted it was possible to set the dates in 2019 to
avoid the Whitsun holidays - this was not the case in 2017."
The dates also provide exhibitors and visitors to Moulding Expo 2019
with new ways to connect to an industry that has many overlaps within the tool,
pattern and mould making sector. On 21 to 23 May 2019, the third edition of
Moulding Expo will run concurrently with the Automotive Show organised by the
British UKi Media & Events Ltd. combining five trade fairs from the
automotive supply industry under one roof. Roland Pfletschinger, Managing
Director, Pfletschinger & Gauch, Plochingen: "The themes of the
Automotive Shows are an ideal supplement to Moulding Expo. They offer synergy
on a broad scale – both for us as exibitor and for trade fair visitors who will
then have a complete technology overview."
Nothing therefore stands in the way of a successful Moulding Expo 2019 –
in fact 70 exhibitors have already confirmed their attendance. The exhibition
advisory committee was unanimous: "The ideal dates and the interaction
with the Automotive Shows will also have a positive impact on visitor
figures.". The last edition of Moulding Expo 2017 was attended by a total
of 14,000 visitors from 52 countries during its four days.
About Moulding Expo – International
Trade Fair for Tool, Pattern and Mould Making
The focus of Moulding Expo is on tool, pattern and mould making with
injection moulding, die-cast moulding, casting, stamping and forming tools, as
well as various pattern-making and prototyping methods. Components and
accessories, machine tools, processing tools, measuring technology and special
machines, software, and systems and services for tool construction and pattern
and mould making round off the scope of the trade fair. Specialist forums and
special exhibitions complement the varied programme. 760 exhibitors and around
14,000 trade visitors came to Stuttgart for the second event.
Messe Stuttgart is the organiser of Moulding Expo. It is supported by
the German Association of Pattern and Mould Making (BVMF), the German
Engineering Federation (VDMA Tool Making Association), the German Association
of Tool and Mouldmakers (VDWF), the German Machine Tool Builders' Association
(VDW) and the International Special Tooling and Machining Association (ISTMA).
