Into new dimensions with AMB 2018

Registration deadline for AMB 2018 / Increased amount of exhibition space opens up new possibilities
The registration deadline for AMB 2018 expired on 30 June 2017. This means that the project team must now examine the registrations which were received and prepare placement proposals for the exhibition stands. "Since AMB exhausted all the capacities of our trade fair centre in the last few years, it was impossible to take account of every exhibitor request. Another 15,000 square metres of gross exhibition space will be available with the new Paul Horn Hall (Hall 10). We will therefore be able to satisfy the demand by exhibitors and increase the attractiveness of the trade fair for our visitors by presenting even more products and innovations," said Ulrich Kromer von Baerle, President of Messe Stuttgart. The additional space will also enable us to optimise the assignment of the existing exhibition areas. AMB 2018 will be thematically restructured: the L-Bank Forum (Hall 1) and Hall 3 will contain machining tools and chucking tools. Hall 4 and Oskar Lapp Hall (Hall 6) will focus on lathes and automatic lathes. Hall 5 will feature grinding machines, tool grinding machines and everything relating to them. Alfred Kärcher Hall (Hall 8) will present the innovations in sawing and cutting-off grinding machines, surface technology, marking systems, hardening and heating machines, lubrication and cooling, and safety and environmental engineering. Halls 7, 9 and the new Paul Horn Hall (Hall 10) will round off the exhibition programme with milling machines, metal-removing process machine tools, measuring systems and quality assurance, as well as flexible production cells/systems, machining centres, gear cutting machines and drilling machines.
AMB 2018: a total of more than 120,000 square metres (gross) will be available, i.e. an area roughly corresponding to the size of 17 football pitches. 
Companies which registered before the closing date on 30 June 2017 will receive the first placement proposals from autumn 2017 onwards. The AMB 2018 website contains a film with detailed information on the new layout of AMB 2018 and the topics that will be presented in each hall.

"Digital Way" will be staged for the first time during AMB 2018 and will be devoted to increasing digitalisation in production. "The new concept comprises a congress, an accompanying exhibition and showcases. Visitors will be able to experience real applications and best practices here live. The associated plans are already in full swing. Over the course of the year we will launch specific offers for participation in the accompanying exhibition and the conference," said Gunnar Mey, Department Director Industry at Messe Stuttgart.
