8 February, 2018, Moscow. The number of countries willing to showcase their production companies within a single national exhibit at the International Industrial Trade Fair INNOPROM has been growing steadily. Swiss mechanical and electrical engineering industries Association (Swissmem) is going to present 8 exhibitors, including TL Technology, StarragGroup, Alfleth Engineering, Galika, Erowa, Fischer Spindle, Sarix, and Blaser Swiss Lube.
Anastasia Martinen, Director of INNOPROM-2018,
“Switzerland is one of the leaders in metal processing and components manufacturing for mechanical engineering, and Swiss products will be met with great interest by other professionals attending the exhibition. At the same time, our European partners will be able to benefit from highly efficient participation in INNOPROM, the main display of industrial products, technologies, and services in Russia which brings together companies from over 100 countries and 60 Russian regions. We are the fastest growing exhibition in Eurasia. In 2017, INNOPROM attracted over 50,000 visitors, more than half of them professionals. I believe that this mutually beneficial cooperation will continue to grow from there.”
The Swiss national stand will be located in Pavilion 1 of the International Exhibition Center and spread over 120 sq.m.
Swiss machine tool builders seek to foster cooperation with Russian suppliers and have been actively developing their relations with Russia as of late. For example, in September 2017, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation organized a working meeting between Deputy Minister Vasiliy Osmakov and Swissmem representatives. The parties discussed localization issues in components manufacturing for mechanical engineering and main areas for the development of bilateral cooperation in mechanical engineering.
In 2017, national exhibits occupied 1/3 of the total INNOPROM area. Germany, Italy, Korea, Japan, and other countries present their national stands at INNOPROM.
The Republic of Korea will serve as INNOPROM-2018 Partner Country. The main theme of the upcoming exhibition is Digital Manufacturing.
Swissmem is a top Swiss Association of small and medium enterprises and large companies working in mechanical and electrical engineering. The Association has more than 1050 members. It was formed by the merger of two organizations: ASM (Association of Swiss Engineering Employers) and VSM (Swiss Association of Machinery Manufacturers), their history going back more than 130 years.
