The 61st International Engineering Fair will once again show visitors the latest innovations and trends in the area of industrial technologies. From 7 to 11 October 2019, more than 1,600 exhibitors from dozens of countries around the world will be exhibiting in Brno. In addition, an interactive exhibition focusing on the digitisation of industry and a number of conference and networking events are being prepared.
Digital Factory as the main theme of MSV 2019
Ongoing digitisation in all areas of human activity brings constantly new, more advanced but at the same time realistic production models. This year's special exhibition in Hall A1 entitled Digital Factory 2.0 will be an illustrative and highly advanced example of digital transformation. Those interested will learn about the principles of production digitisation and individual products, tools and solutions through exhibitors' presentations. Other solutions focusing on the digital future will be presented at exhibitors' displays in individual industry halls. A supporting feature of the Digital Factory 2.0 exhibition will be an eponymous conference with the subtitle "Czech Republic as an industrial superpower? ". It will take place on 9 October at 9 am in Hall E. The future of Czech industry in the digital era and the second wave of industry 4.0 as a chance for the Czech economy will be discussed.
From the Basque Country to China: the whole world exhibits in Brno!
Companies from at least thirty countries head to MSV every year, and this year it will not be any different. “The interest in participation is traditionally high and, as in previous years, the entire exhibition centre will be occupied. The largest sectors at MSV remain machining and forming. A significant increase in new interesting companies from the Czech Republic and abroad is recorded at the Transport and Logistics fair, ” says MSV director Michalis Busios. Out of more than 1,600 exhibitors, one half will be foreign and world market leaders will bring the best of their offer to Brno – from high-performance machine tools to the latest generation of industrial robots. Most foreign exhibitors will come again from Germany , where two traditional official participations, backed by the federal states (Bundesländer), are also announced. The larger display, featuring 15 companies, is being prepared by Bavaria, the smaller display called “Mitteldeutschland ” with five companies will represent the federal states of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia.
