International Surface Technology Fair
MSV 2012: Brno Exhibition Centre filled by seven industrial fairs
The 54th International Engineering Fair will be held this year in the traditional September date, from 10 to 14 September, and together with it, six specialized exhibitions will be held: 8th International Trade Fair for Machine Tools IMT, 14th International Foundry Fair FOND-EX, 21st International Welding Trade Fair WELDING, 4th International Trade Fair for Surface Technology PROFINTECH, 3rd International Plastics, Rubber and Composites Fair PLASTEX and 11th International Fair of Personal Protective Equipment and Safety at Work, INTERPROTEC.
Well-proven connection with technology fairs
A date connection of MSV with other specialized technological fairs is not a complete novelty. In 2010, the organizing company Brno Exhibition Centre, responded to the economic development and presented industries a the new connection has proved them right. Companies that have previously participated in both MSV and specialized projects, welcomed the opportunity to exhibit only once a year before a professional clientele. Visitors were also satisfied, as they could make contacts and get all the information required for business in one place - from innovations in manufacturing technology to competitive bids from suppliers of materials and components to safety issues, funding or research.
This year will have a similar concept, which will again offer a joint presentation of related industries. Alongside the International Engineering Fair with eight specialized sectorial units, there will be the Biennial IMT International Machine Tools Exhibition as the largest showcase in Central and Eastern Europe. Focus will be also on foundry technology, which has been presented in Brno since 1972 at the FOND-EX International Foundry Fair. An even longer tradition is connected with WELDING, an International Welding Engineering Fair, which premiered in 1969 and, like FOND-EX, has had a long number one position in its branch in Central Europe. For the fourth time, PROFINTECH, an International Fair of Surface Technology returns, presenting news in finishing operations. And unlike 2010, it is also about PLASTEX, the International Fair of Plastics, Rubber and Composites, which was held in Brno four years ago. Six industrial fairs will be complemented by the International Fair of Personal Protective Equipment and Safety at Work - INTERPROTEC whose offer appeals to businesses of all presented disciplines.
Applications by the end of March
The International Engineering Fair is returning to the traditional September date this year, and therefore the application deadline is also moved ahead. Exhibitors may apply for participation by 31 March 2012, which guarantees them a discount and also a choice of exhibition space, where increased interest can be expected due to extended portfolio of presented fields this year.
