Dec 18, 2009

When the 16th EuroMold closed its doors on December 5, it had seen 56,372 attendees from 86 countries come and go. Despite the bad global economic conditions, the successful EuroMold 2009 was able to maintain visitor numbers at last year’s levels and even increased the international quality of the attendee group.

The show organizer, DEMAT GmbH, reports that the 16th world fair for mould making and tooling, design, and application development, which was held as usual in the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre, featured 1,354 exhibitors from 37 countries showcasing their products and services for a professional visitors of high calibre. Exhibits included many world premieres in various technology sectors.

DEMAT feels that EuroMold 2009 set standards on several accounts: with its new hall concept, focus on the host country Poland, a comprehensive international conference programme, and the special feature shows “e-Production for Everyone” and “Automation within Moldmaking and Tooling.”

“Increasing numbers of trade visitors from abroad, the high acceptance of the newly built Hall 11.0, and the large interest in the special feature shows were far beyond our expectations,” remarked Dr.-Ing. Eberhard Döring, exhibition manager for EuroMold 2009. “More than ever, EuroMold has become an absolutely essential driving force for innovation and growth in the entire product development chain, and has also expanded its position as the leading world fair for this industry.”

Numerous exhibitors from a variety of industries announced that they had made many high-potential business contacts and signed a significant number of contracts at the show. EuroMold 2009 thus showed that companies representing all areas of product development enjoy great possibilities for success even when the economy is problematic.
