GrindingHub 2024: Registration now open
After successfully launching the event last year, the organizer VDW (German Machine Tool Builders' Association) – in cooperation with Messe Stuttgart and Schleiftagung, and with the “Machine Tools” sector of Swissmem (Association of the Swiss Mechanical, Electrical and Metal Industries) on board as institutional patron – is keen to repeat the success as it opens registration for the event. Dr. Wilfried Schäfer, Executive Director of the VDW, is full of anticipation: “We launched the GrindingHub in 2022 – attracting large numbers of satisfied exhibitors and visitors. We want to build on this in the coming year. We are already looking forward to seeing everyone again in Stuttgart and are extending a warm invitation to all grinding experts – encouraging them not to miss this highlight in the industry calendar.”
The success of the GrindingHub is also confirmed by the positive feedback from exhibitors. Along with many others, Bernd Dürr, Head of the Grinding Business Unit at the Emag Group in Salach, was highly impressed by the event and is planning to return: “We are more than satisfied with what we achieved at the GrindingHub. The event provided us with an excellent platform for presenting our machines, technologies and services to a broad trade audience and for establishing valuable contacts. We really appreciated the opportunity to network with other exhibitors and professionals from the sector. We were most impressed by the overall concept and firmly intend to return to the GrindingHub.” In 2024, the focus will again be on grinding machines and abrasives, but also on the entire production environment of grinding technology, such as appropriate software tools, process peripherals, and measuring and testing systems. Interested companies can registernow to secure their place at the grinding technology trade fair. Further information is also available on the GrindingHub homepage at www.grindinghub.de.
The hybrid nature of GrindingHub means that those who don't want to wait another year until the next event can find out now about the latest grinding technology. This is because the GrindingHub is there for its participants even in the years with no fair: The VDW, in cooperation with the IndustryArena business network, offers the industry a digital platform under the 360°SPECIAL brand. On 23 May 2023, companies will be given the opportunity to give 6-minute pitches on their new products and technologies to an international online audience, and to make contact with potential customers. The event will be presided over by an expert moderator and also include scientific presentations on current topics. Further information can be found on the website at www.grindinghub-digital.de.
