Around 1,350 exhibitors over an area covering 105,000m2 and more than 90,000 trade visitors – AMB creates a furore every two years. The leading trade fair in the metalworking industry, one of the top five global fairs in the cutting technology sector, will be held in 2016 from 13 to 17 September. All the global market and technology leaders will meet again to showcase their latest developments in machines, tools and related peripherals for metal machining.

There are many reasons why AMB has become an absolute crowd puller. The well arranged layout of the hall according to themes, thrilling special exhibitions and an attractive accompanying programme of events are just a few of them.

There is also something new about the AMB. The show now has the potential to grow with the new construction of Hall 10 at the Messe Stuttgart site. In figures, this means that in 2018 AMB will cover 120,000m2.
