May 2014 – Come July, world-leading machine tool manufacturers will converge at the first EMTE-EASTPO machine tool exhibition held from 14 – 17 July 2014.

Over 650 international exhibiting companies have confirmed their participation at EMTE-EASTPO. They include Bystronic, Carl Zeiss (Shanghai), Emuge-Franken Precision Tools (Suzhou), Fastems, Five Machining Systems (Shanghai), Hermle, Murata Machinery, Starrag, United Grinding (formerly known as Korber Schleifring) among others. In addition, six national pavilions from Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Spain, South Korea and Switzerland will also be represented at the exhibition.

EMTE-EASTPO is a strategic east-west partnership of two established machine tool show owners from Europe and China. Leveraging on the partners’ strong track record, EMTE-EASTPO brings together advanced technology, cutting-edge innovations and high performing machinery under one roof. It also serves as a one-stop business and networking platform for exhibitors to meet and network with their buyers in the region.

Echoing this sentiment is Korea Association of the Machinery Industry (KOAMI), organiser of the Korean pavilion. “EMTE-EASTPO will be important for Korean machine tool manufacturers eyeing the China market. We foresee the exhibition to be an effective platform for them to reach out to their buyers and meet potential business prospects in the region,” said managing director, Kim Yong Kook.

In addition, Milan Ráž, managing director of Czech Trade Promotion Agency shared: “We will be organizing a Czech Republic pavilion in co-operation with the Association of Engineering Technology (SST) at EMTE-EASTPO 2014. The exhibition will serve as the ideal platform to showcase our machinery and technology as well as to expand our clientele with key buyers from China and the rest of Asia. We are pleased to be part of EMTE-EASTPO and look forward to new business opportunities in Asia.”
