Trade Fair for Tool, Pattern and Mould Making MEX Meeting Point: Kicking off Moulding Expo 2023
Germany — Launching Moulding Expo 2023: To kick off the planning for next year’s trade fair, the Moulding Expo team invited participants to the MEX Meeting Point in Stuttgart on 3 May 2022.
At the MEX Meeting Point in Stuttgart, Germany, tool, pattern and mould making companies as well as their technology suppliers and everyone interested in the Moulding Expo came together. The day’s programme was packed with fun activities and the latest information about Moulding Expo 2023. Lisa Reehten of Bosch Climate Solutions gave a keynote address on sustainability in tool, pattern and mould making. This topic was also discussed at the roundtable featuring representatives from Moulding Expo partner associations later in the day. The event ended with networking opportunities for all participants.
“The Moulding Expo is more than just a trade fair. The importance of networking is at its heart, and it makes this easy. After the last two years, we needed more than anything to bring together the global tool making industry,” says Bob Williamson, President of the International Special Tooling and Machining Association (Istma World). “We plan to create an Istma lounge at the next Moulding Expo, and we want to project the image of a global industry that, as a whole, offers the key means of developing sustainable production.”
The countdown to next year’s Moulding Expo has begun. From 13 to 16 June 2023, leading industry companies, technology partners, suppliers and plenty of trade visitors will come together at the tool, pattern and mould making trade fair at Messe Stuttgart. One of the highlights for the coming year is the Road of Tooling Innovation. As part of the special show, well-known drivers of innovation from the industry will present the tool and production concepts of the future and demonstrate them on-site. With its position at the centre of the market, its proximity to the airport and good transport links to motorway and suburban trains and tramways, Messe Stuttgart is the ideal meeting point for industry players from the local region, Germany and all over Europe.
