CeMAT ASIA with strong performance
619 exhibitors from 21 nations in four show days - with these numbers the CeMAT ASIA closed in November 2017. The logistics event took place at Shanghai's SNIEC exhibition center and announces also record numbers in the visitor participation.
This year's showcase at Shanghai's SNIEC exhibition center attracted 98,742 visitors, states the organizer. CeMAT ASIA 2017 occupied some 60,000 square meters (645,800 sq. ft.) of display space, up from 52,000 (559,700) in 2016, and featured smart industrial trucks, collaborative robots and integrated logistics systems from manufacturers from all around the world. "This year's CeMAT ASIA was an absolute record-breaker in terms of exhibitor and visitor participation and presented the latest high-tech Logistics 4.0 applications in a dynamically growing market," commented Marc Siemering, Senior Vice President Industry, Energy, Logistics at Deutsche Messe AG.
The exhibitor list included leading robot manufacturers plus virtually most of the world's top names in integrated logistics systems. Industrial trucks and accessories by prominent manufacturers were also part of the show. According to the organizer, this year's exhibitors were very satisfied with the show, with the majority indicating intentions to return next year. So, visitors to this year's show once again benefited from a highly informative and rich program of supporting events, featuring many examples of current best practice from such diverse areas as the automotive industry, fashion logistics, packaging equipment, medical technology, mechanical engineering, agricultural machinery and shipbuilding.
CeMAT ASIA is organized by Deutsche Messe AG and Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai Ltd, and is further enhanced by powerful synergies with the co-located shows PTC ASIA (power transmission and control technology), ComVac ASIA (compressed air and vacuum technology), Industrial Supply ASIA (industrial subcontracting solutions and lightweight construction) and APEX ASIA (access equipment). The next CeMAT ASIA will be held from 6 to 9 November 2018 in Shanghai, China.
