SWISSTECH 2019 | 14 - 17 MAY 2019 | Messe Basel
SWISSTECH is the most important trade fair for materials, components and system assembly in the German-speaking region. The fair covers the entire spectrum of metal and plastic components and all links in the value chain. This is where the sectors for mechanical and technical components and system solutions get together every two years. The fair at Messe Basel showcases the entire Swiss subcontracting and supplier industry to sector leaders for purchasing, procurement, production and manufacturing.
With over 50,000 visitors having converged on Basel to find out more about innovations and trends in the MEM industry, the trade fair power duo PRODEX and SWISSTECH has now come to an end. Despite the challenging economic climate, over 770 exhibitors presented their products and solutions. The organisers, the partner associations SWISSMEM, SWISSMECHANIC and tecnoswiss, and the exhibitors are delighted with the level of visitor interest.
Exhibitors pleased with SWISSTECH success
SWISSTECH was also very successful despite a difficult economic climate: 440 exhibitors showcased their products and solutions in trade fair halls 1.1 and 1.2 to around 21,000 industry visitors from purchasing, procurement, production and manufacturing.
Industry Skills 2016: Swiss experts unveiled
A total of 60 participants were hard at work at both trade fairs throughout the week. Industry Skills is an important platform for promoting talent in the MEM industry. It was jointly organised by the associations Swissmechanic and Swissmem. The new professional champions from automation (team of two), electronic and structural engineering as well as polytechnicians in CNC milling, CNC turning and automation were crowned on the final day of the trade fair. The gold medal winners of Industry Skills 2016 have the honour of representing their profession at the upcoming “WorldSkills 2017” professional championships in Abu Dhabi.
The majority of the exhibitors are convinced that the trade fair power duo can help Switzerland strengthen its status as an industrial centre.
The next PRODEX and SWISSTECH will be held from 14 to 17 May 2019 in Basel.
