Registration begins for AMB 2022 international trade fair


After the suspension of last year’s event, AMB — the international exhibition for metal working — will get back into its regular cycle and take place again at the Stuttgart trade fair center September 13-17, 2022. All major exhibitors from the metal working and processing industry will present their innovations and further developments to the interested professional visitors over five trade fair days.

“We’re really excited to finally be able to stage trade fairs again,” said Gunnar Mey, department director industry at Landesmesse Stuttgart GmbH.

The Trade Fair Advisory Board supports the project team in its endeavor. At the kick-off meeting in June, all companies pledged their full backing for the trade fair. The companies present in the meeting were DMG MORI, INDEX-Werke, HAHN+KOLB, EMCO, GF Machining Solutions, CHIRON Werke, FFG Europe, KASTO, GÜHRING, CERATIZIT, ISCAR, Hartmetall-Werkzeugfabrik Paul Horn, MAPAL, NAGEL Werkzeug-Maschinen, Ilg + Sulzberger, and Römheld. “The trust placed in us from exhibitors and partners makes us extremely proud and confirms us on our way to a great AMB 2022,” said Mey.

The current market data presented by the promotional supporters of AMB including the VDMA Precision Tools Association, the VDMA Software and Digitalization Association, and the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association (VDW) approve the impressions of the Trade Fair Advisory Board and give a positive outlook on the current economic developments. Increases in incoming orders are good signs for a successful restart of AMB, which gathers momentum with the announced registration phase.

The next important milestone for exhibitors at AMB 2022 is the start of the planning phase in October.

Around 90,000 international trade visitors and 1,500 exhibitors are expected at the twentieth AMB, which will be held at the Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre. On an exhibition area of more than 120,000 square meters (gross), the focal points will be innovations and further developments for metal-cutting machine tools, metal-removing process machine tools, precision tools, measuring systems and quality assurance, robots, workpiece and tool handling technology, industrial software & engineering, components, assemblies and accessories. AMB 2020 will be backed by the promotional supporters, i.e. the VDMA Precision Tools Association, the VDMA Software and Digitalisation Association, and the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association (VDW).
