The largest welding trade fair in the Asian region begins

BEIJING ESSEN WELDING & CUTTING, the leading welding trade fair for the industry in the Asian region, opens today its doors for the 24th time. Until friday, 28 June, over 1,000 exhibitors will be presenting their products and services in a display area of more than 87,000 square metres in the Shanghai New International Expo Center.

Thomas Kufen, lord mayor of Essen, opened the trade fair together with the Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society and the DVS – German Welding Society.

Products related to welding and cutting are in high demand in China: with monthly production of 85 million tonnes of steel, this country is the global leader and therefore also has a corresponding requirement for further processing. BEIJING ESSEN WELDING & CUTTING offers visitors the ideal platform to seek information concerning the innovations in the key technologies involved in joining, cutting and coating, as well as to share ideas and to order products. The importance of the trade fair is also highlighted by the strong interest shown by exhibitors. More than 1,000 national and international companies registered for the second largest trade fair for the industry straight after the world-leading trade fair SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN (Essen, Germany).

Companies have the opportunity to offer a concise overview of their services at the numerous international pavilion stands, including the German Pavilion, which has increased in size by 38 per cent compared with the last event in Shanghai as a result of the high demand. 25 companies have a presence at the pavilion stand which is promoted by the German Federal Ministry of the Economy, where they will showcase their "Made in Germany" products.
