The registration period for AMB 2020 ended on June 30. The project team is now starting to examine the registration forms received and is preparing the first placement proposals for the exhibition stands.

“AMB is a permanent fixture in the industry’s diary. This is also demonstrated by the high demand for exhibition space at AMB 2020,” said Gunnar Mey, department director industry at Messe Stuttgart. It is certain that the 20th AMB, which will be held at the Stuttgart Trade

Fair Centre, September 15–19, will again be booked completely and will occupy the entire area of the trade fair grounds.

Several companies that attended AMB in 1982 talk about their connection with the exhibition, and what makes it so attractive.

Lothar Horn, managing director of Paul Horn GmbH, sees a special connection with AMB.

“We have a close association with AMB and have grown continuously together. In 1982, we exhibited at the event as a small Swabian company,” he said. “Nowadays, we take part in AMB as the world market leader for precision tools. For us, AMB is like our own living room where we welcome our customers. It also clearly sets the standard as to what we want to present in terms of new products and innovations.”

Holger Hehl, area sales manager at Chiron-Werke GmbH & Co. KG, said AMB is definitely the centerpiece of machine tool construction and the ideal meeting point for the industry in southern Germany.

“Every world market leader presents their innovations here and we have a platform to show metal cutting in detail to customers and interested parties,” Hehl said.

Werner Gerstner, sales manager at Carl Zeiss AG, attended the first AMB in 1982 and is still impressed by the exhibition concept.

“AMB has always set standards and supported a large number of changes in technology,” he said. “Every important topic is examined here and exhibitors show their portfolio solutions relating, for example, to electric mobility, Industry 4.0 or the Internet of Things.”
