SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2013 has impressively highlighted its position as the worldwide number one: Inspired by the good mood in the industry, the 18th edition of the world's premier fair for joining, cutting and surfacing technology achieved an outstanding result. With a turnover volume of more than Euro 2 billion, the exhibitors' expectations in relation to the business at the fair were surpassed considerably. "The visitors from all over the world stayed at the fair for a substantially longer time and were well-informed and enthusiastic about making investments," was the unanimous tenor.
On September 16 - 21, 2013, 1,017 exhibitors from 40 nations presented their innovations at SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN at Messe Essen - one in four of them travelled from Asia and overseas. By Saturday morning, around 55,000 trade visitors from around 130 countries had obtained detailed information. Almost one in two stayed in Essen for two days or longer - a very good value which highlights the significance of the event and its range on offer. The exhibitors rated the numbers of visitors in total and on their own booths too very positively and also praised the high competence and internationality of the guests. 50 percent of the visitors travelled from abroad.
We would like to point out that Welding and Cutting today is the only official fair newspaper and that MESSE ESSEN has no business relations with other commercial magazines.
