From September 15–19, 2020, the heart of metal working will beat in Stuttgart for the 20th time. Every renowned exhibitor will then present their innovations and further developments for the metal working and processing industry over a period of five days at AMB, International Exhibition for Metal Working.

This platform was created together with the industry in 1982 and has been systematically developed since. AMB set new records in 2018. Never before was so much exhibition space (125,800 square meters) occupied or so many exhibitors (1,553) and visitors (91,016 from 83 countries) recorded at the Stuttgart Trade Fair Center.

“With the new Paul Horn Hall, we took an important step in the Master Plan of Messe Stuttgart in 2018 and also, ultimately, for the further development of AMB – the urgently required increase in the amount of exhibition space,” said Ulrich Kromer von Baerle, CEO of Messe Stuttgart. Kromer von Baerle said the results from the last financial year are confirmation that Messe Stuttgart can continue forging ahead with the expansion plans that were announced in the 2025 Master Plan.

The CEO of Messe Stuttgart is again expecting that the trade fair grounds will be fully occupied at AMB 2020.

“The increase in the amount of exhibition space has enabled us to restructure the halls according to topics. This new structure has proved very popular and will therefore only be finely adjusted for 2020,” said Kromer von Baerle.

The more than 90,000 expected visitors will find solutions and concepts for future   production and will meet existing and potential partners at AMB 2020.

The exhibitors will then showcase all their innovations for metal-cutting machine tools, metal-removing process machine tools, precision tools, measuring systems and quality assurance, robots, workpiece and tool handling, industrial software and engineering, components, assemblies, and accessories. The latest topics will include, for example, digitalization in production, additive manufacturing in metal working, or further developments in e-mobility.

The registration phase for exhibitors has begun and will run until June 30, 2019.

AMB 2020 will be backed by the promotional supporters, i.e. the VDMA Precision Tools Association, the VDMA Software and Digitalization Association, and the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association (VDW).
