High International Participation and Excellent Supporting Programme

Six Official National Booths, Top-Class Competitions and Congresses

From September 25 to 29, 2017, the entire sector dealing with joining, cutting and surfacing technologies is making a one-off guest appearance at Messe Düsseldorf. SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN is once more being characterised by high internationality. The around 1,000 exhibitors are travelling to the world's premier fair from 41 nations. Six countries are presenting their products on official joint booths. The sectoral event is being rounded off by a top-class supporting programme with congresses and competitions.

At SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2017, a total of six official joint participations are showing their country-specific innovations. China (Hall 11 and Hall 15) and the USA (Hall 10 and Hall 11) are both being represented with two booths each. French exhibitors are presenting themselves jointly in Hall 9. Further country pavilions are originating from Korea (Hall 12), Taiwan (Hall 14) and Japan (Hall 14).


At the same time, SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN is also the leading meeting place for the exchange of specialist ideas and the transfer of know-how. On the initiative of the German Welding Society (DVS), the DVS CONGRESS with the Annual Welding Conference (GST) and the DVS Student Congress will this year take place in the Congress Center Düsseldorf East at Messe Düsseldorf from September 26 to 29. The DVS CONGRESS will stand for top-class lectures with first-hand information. The combination with SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN will offer an excellent environment for this purpose. The DVS CONGRESS will present an extensive programme of lectures relating to the entire performance spectrum of current joining, cutting and surfacing technology and its trendsetting developments.



Who's Best at Welding?

For the best young welders from home and abroad, three contests will take place in the Kemper-Arena in Hall 14 during SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2017. The prelude will be the 12th National DVS "Young Welders" Competition in which Germany's most talented young welders will be sought in the four disciplines: Gas Welding, Manual Metal Arc Welding, Metal Active Gas Welding and Tungsten Inert Gas Welding.

The WELDCUP with European participants as well as the International Competition with young welders from all over the world will take place thereafter. Thus, it will become exciting when the most talented young welders from all over Germany as well as from abroad compete against each other before the eyes of the expert audience. All the competition tasks will be oriented to the stipulations of the welder qualification test which complies with DIN EN ISO 9606‑1 and is recognised on the European and international levels.
