Motek Attracts
Countless

Expert Visitors with Decision
-
Making Authority


Frickenhausen
,

12 October

2012
.
The fact that the annual Motek
international trade fair for
handling, assembly and automation

technology is by far not just a venue for information and
communication between suppliers and users is substantiated by statements from numerous
exhibitors at the recent 31
st

Motek. For example, a mid
-
sized manufacturer of special
machines was able to ann
ounce that he concluded a million Euro deal on the last day of
Motek 2012, and other companies of all sizes also reported concrete orders
and

targeted
RFQs for stand
-
alone solutions and complete systems. And thus not only is a trend finding its
continuatio
n at Motek, as commented by Erik Felle, managing director of Atlas Copco:
“Motek is our most important trade fair. This has been confirmed again this year. Companies
may be sending a smaller total number of employees to important trade fairs, but precisely

the
right people attend Motek.” Hen
rik A. Schunk,
managing

shareholder of Schunk GmbH &
Co.,
is singing the same tune
and issued a press release with the following announcement
when the event was only half over: “Outstanding feedback received at our booth

demonstrates that efficient production automation harbours enormous potential.”


Increasing exhibition of robotic systems fits into this pattern as well, of which 58 units could
be observed in action at this year’s Motek
that

were demonstrated by manufact
urers and
above all system suppliers, system integrators and equipment suppliers. Trade fair
promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG are taking this fact as an invitation to further expand
offerings in the area of “process applications for robots and handling

systems” at next year’s
Motek, in order to provide experts from all over the world with highly practical added value.
Speaking of experts, with 35,647 expert visitors the event experienced a slight decline in
comparison with last year (36,852), as opposed

to which exhibitor numbers increased

minimally from 1051 to 1062 (including Bondexpo with 106 and 122 exhibitors in the
respective years). The exhibitors came from 23 different countries and occupied more than
645,000 square feet of overall exhibition flo
or space, which is roughly the same as last year.
Growth was also recorded with regard to expert visitor internationalism: in 2011 visitors came
from 87 countries and this year from 93. A further indicator of growing internationalism and
Motek’s great impo
rtance as the world’s leading trade fair for the automation of production,
assembly, material flow, test technology and packaging is the large number of accredited
trade journalists, namely more than 200.


Due to the fact that, to an ever greater extent, a
ssembly technology is considered the “elite
class” where production is concerned, as is more and more frequently the case in the
globalised world of production and as a result of the
marriage

of components manufactured
at locations around the globe, Motek
is plainly the most important information,
communication, business and procurement platform. Living up to this demand in a lasting
and emphatic fashion is the goal of private trade fair promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG,
as well as the exhibitors from b
oth inside and outside of Germany. With regard to the
exhibitors, this was made apparent by the many newly designed and enlarged booths, and
the creative presentation concepts. And this has underscored, and will continue to
underscore, Motek’s
value

as par
t of the marketing mix on the one hand, and is acceptance
as an industry platform with powerful economic force on the other hand. Where the event
promoters are concerned, this is rendered tangible by, amongst other things, “double”
commitment to the presen
tation of special shows such as the AoI Arena of Innovation, Virtual
Fort Knox and the theme parks, as well as the exhibitor forum. For example, alone the once
again fully booked exhibitor forum was attended by more than 650 visitors
,

who were thus
able to

gain further in
-
depth knowledge on
-
site in a time
-
optimised manner.


The next Motek international trade fair for assembly, handling and automation technology will
take place from the 7
th

through the 10
th

of October, 2013.
