Machine Tool Fair records rush of German exhibitors

11th CCMT

Munich/Shanghai, July 9, 2019 – Nine months before the opening of CCMT 2020, interest in the Chinese machine tool fair is stronger than ever before: Until the beginning of July, German exhibitors have registered more than three times as much exhibition space than in the same period of 2017. Machine tools from Germany are still in great demand in China. Currently, the country takes almost 20 percent of the German machine tool exports. That is why the CCMT which takes place from April 7 to 11, 2020 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, has become a must go for German companies from the industry which want to do successful business in China.

In 2018, the CCMT closed with a visitor record: Almost 126,000 visitors informed themselves at around 120,000 square meters about the industry's innovations. The German exhibition space alone grew by nearly 40 percent in comparison to the previous event. "For machine tool producers from Germany China is still the most important export market. Trade fairs such as the CCMT or its sister event CIMT in Beijing play a significant role in showing presence in the country and maintain personal contacts. Regarding the amount of registrations that we have already received, it becomes apparent that the CCMT will continue to grow in 2020", explains Peter Bergleiter, Managing Director of the German trade fair partner IMAG. At the CCMT 2020 there will again be a centrally located German country pavilion. There, German companies can showcase their products within an official group participation which is supported by the Federal Ministry of Economy.
