Measuring, control, automation and regulation technology
Three months remain until the beginning of the 56th International Engineering Fair in Brno, but the most attractive areas in the halls are already sold out. Big interest in participating corresponds with the positive development of the economy in both the Czech Republic and Central Europe.
The structure of the International Engineering Fair will be similar to that in 2012. The dominant sector of machine tools and forming machines will be even more dominant than in the odd years, because it is the focus of the specialized biennial IMT fair (International Machine Tools Exhibition). Also the foundry industry, welding, surface treatment and plastic processing will be strongly represented this year, since some companies do not participate in MSV, but only in the specialized fairs for this industry, which are held in Brno once every two years.
The cross-sectional AUTOMATION project was declared the main theme of MSV 2014 - focusing on measurement, control, automation and control technology. The project is organized in cooperation with the Czech-Moravian Electrical and Electronic Association and adds visibility to possibilities of automation in various sectors of the fair.
In addition to machining and electrical engineering, most exhibitors applied for presentation in the group of Materials and Components for Mechanical Engineering.
The International Engineering Fair has long been one of the projects with the highest proportion of foreign exhibitors, not only among the Brno trade fairs, but throughout Central and Eastern Europe. This year, the share of foreign participants reaches 40 percent.
