The global flagship event on sheet metal working is expecting a huge turnout this year. Spread over nine exhibition halls and covering more than 90,000 square metres, this year’s event will be a unique opportunity to see the largest collection of sheet metal working technology in one place. Six months ahead of the show, over 90% of available stand space has already been secured. New this year are the Guided Visitor Tours showcasing the top picks in productivity solutions to increase output and efficiency.

From 22 to 25 October 2024, the 27th International Sheet Metal Working Technology Exhibition,
EuroBLECH, will open its doors again at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds in Germany. It is the world’s
largest exhibition for sheet metal processing, covering the entire supply chain in 15 different
technology sectors. Visitors can look forward to an impressive amount of live demonstrations and
world premieres, giving opportunity to explore, assess and discuss the benefits and gains of specific
technology solutions for their own production process.

EuroBLECH 2024 will be occupying halls 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 26 and 27 at Hanover Exhibition
Grounds, the world’s largest exhibition centre. The uptake on stand space has been immense, in
particular from international exhibitors, with more than 60% of exhibitors joining from outside
Germany. As such, the show mirrors the global significance of the sheet metal sector in the wider
economy. Besides Germany, the major exhibitor countries are Italy, Turkey, China, Spain, the
Netherlands, Switzerland, Taiwan, Belgium, Austria, France and the USA.

Live on the show floor: Smart machinery, tools and IT solutions

EuroBLECH provides numerous opportunities to watch innovative machinery live in action. It is worth
noticing that more than a quarter of EuroBLECH visitors do not attend any other trade shows – they
feel EuroBLECH already offers the best access to the broadest possible spectrum of tech suppliers,
with exhibits covering literally anything to do with the processing of metal sheet, tubes, profiles, plastic
hybrids and other related applications.

On display: stamping presses, CNC punching machines, press brakes and other machines and tools
for cutting, punching and forming; joining; welding and fastening; surface treatment and finishing;
process control and quality assurance; machine elements and components; CAD/CAM/CIM systems;
warehouse and factory equipment; material recycling; and much more.

New for 2024: Guided Visitor Tours

For the first time, visitors will be able to book carefully curated visitor tours. Also reflected in this year’s
motto for EuroBLECH, ‘The Power of Productivity’, the organised visitor experiences focus on
productivity-enhancing technology. The tours will include 10-minute presentations at each stop,
followed by a short Q&A session. There are two different tour options to choose from:

Tour 1 “Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)” covers key topics such as big data, remote analysis,
predictive maintenance, production monitoring, and part traceability. Participants will discover various products, tools and software to help them plan, optimise and monitor production with a view to
improving their overall productivity, efficiency and sustainability.

Tour 2 “Automation and Robotics for Efficient Production” demonstrates how integrated, bolt-on or
stand-alone automation and robotics systems can streamline production operations for greater
sustainability and productivity, even for small batches. These can range from handling, sorting,
conveyor, storage, and stacking systems to robots, co-bots and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).
Further information on how to book the Guided Visitor Tours will be published on the EuroBLECH
website closer to the show.

EuroBLECH 2024 Speaker Forum for valuable insights

In addition to the innovations and numerous live demonstrations on the exhibition stands, attendees
can benefit from the popular EuroBLECH 2024 Speaker Forum, two dedicated presentation theatres
for expert talks and panel discussions. Sessions run on all four show days and offer exciting insights
into the latest projects and product developments, as well as valuable networking opportunities and
meaningful exchange amongst peers. The speaker agenda will be published closer to the show.

EuroBLECH 2024 Industry Awards for technical excellence

The prestigious EuroBLECH Industry Awards are making a comeback at EuroBLECH 2024.
Recognition will be given for the most innovative products, solutions and digitalisation concepts in
various categories. The winners will be selected by industry professionals via online voting, starting in
autumn 2024 and the awards will be presented at the exhibition. More details will be published in the
run-up to the show.
