MSV 2011 again throughout the Brno Exhibition Centre

MSV 2011 again throughout the Brno Exhibition Centre

53rd International Engineering Fair will take place from 3 to 7 October 2011 as the most important industrial show held in the new member countries of the European Union. Interest in participation is again rising, and most surfaces including the largest exhibition halls are already sold out.

The fair reflects economic recovery
    "Preparations are in full swing and we register high interest in participating. After last year, which reflected the beginning of economic recovery, this is another testimony of the positive mood of industrial firms," stated MSV director Jiří Rousek. He also confirmed that the number of applications is already higher than last year in many fields, while new ones are still coming. "We see returning exhibitors who last participated in MSV in 2008, before the economic crisis, while some traditional participants expand their exhibition space. Most of our largest buildings, including Halls P, V and F are filled almost to full capacity," Rousek specified.
Interest in the fair corresponds with positive development of the economy and the growth of industrial production in the Czech Republic but also in Germany and throughout Central Europe. Domestic exports are driven beside the automotive industry especially by engineering and energy sector.

Hall P will belong to metalworking machines
  The largest exhibition hall in Central Europe becomes the main presentation centre of the important branch of machine tools for the third time. Visitors can look forward to the largest number of machinery exhibits headed by the novelties of leading domestic and international manufacturers. Although IMT, the specialized machine tools trade fair does not take place this year, the extent of exhibition space booked in this branch already exceeds last year's reality of the IMT fair 2010. "Recovery in engineering fields, which is now talked about a lot, is a reality and is clearly manifested in the participation interest", commented Jiří Rousek.
There are no rules for exhibitors restricting the machine presentation, therefore producers want to present to potential clients really the most interesting parts of their offer. There are reports of specific machine exhibits, which we will see in Brno. For example, Kovosvit MAS will present its new product of the year - five-axis multi-centre MCU 5X 630VT with turning possibilities.

Exhibitors, who significantly increased their exhibition space in comparison with last year, include companies like STROJÍRNA TYC, ITAX PRECISION, AGIE CHARMILLES or DK machinery. Companies that exhibited at MSV last in 2008 and return this year, include Mikron MORAVIA (machine tools), FEIN elektronáradie (machine tools and turning machines and tools), DAYTON PROGRESS (standard parts for forming machines) or SEMACO (machine tools), who participated in MSV in 2005.
      The whole "Machine Tools, Welding Equipment, Surface Finishing and Tools" branch presents most newcomers. The most interesting premiere will involve the participation of YAMAZAKI MAZAK Central Europe. An offer of machine tools brings to Brno for the first time the companies RIPRON, S.O.S. DIFAK, MACMATIC, MAIER CE PELUG-TECH or Pavel Pardovský. Premiered foreign participants include the English Eclipse Magnetics Ltd (abrasives) or German company Peiseler (cutting tools).

Key branches of this year’s edition
Exhibitors in other industries also look to the future with greater optimism and want to seize the new opportunities brought about by the economic recovery. The most numerously represented branch group will again feature Materials and Components for Mechanical Engineering, where in comparison with the last two years the participation of companies and the extent of leased surface increases. For the very first time, the Italian steel company MARCEGAGLIA will take part in MSV and present its range of welded steel tubes and pipes in an extensive exhibition. A similar range will also be exhibited by another premiere participant, Benteler Distribution Czech Republic. Newcomers also include LubTec company, offering centralized lubrication technology or Oiles Deutschland, a German company supplying friction bearings.
 Organizers registered a significant expansion of exhibitions also in the field of Materials and Components for Mechanical Engineering - the most striking example is VÍTKOVICE, who rented a stand area of 300 m2. MORAVIA STEEL will again occupy the entire pavilion H with their exhibition. Other businesses also intend to present themselves in a generous way this year, among them SCHWER FITTINGS whose CEO Tomáš Rýpar told us: "We did not miss MSV even in times of crisis, which of course was challenging, but I think the attendance paid off. We did not disappear from the market for customers and this year in turn we exhibit in greater glory than in the past two years." SCHWER FITTINGS will among other things introduce a new range of fittings for a very challenging technology in Brno, namely distribution of clean gas with high tightness and resistance against aggressive media.
Exhibitors of materials and components, who last attended the Brno trade fair in 2008 and are   returning this year, include the company SCHAEFFLER CZ, VK LOŽISKA, KOVOBEL, VISIMPEX or the Austrian company GRAESSNER.
  
Substantial fields of MSV on a long-term basis also include Plastics, Rubber and Chemistry. Last year's K fair in Düsseldorf already showed that the crisis in this sector has passed and due to dynamic growth of the automotive and electrical industry as major customers, the demand for plastics technology continues to rise. Major exhibitors like KUBOUŠEK, PLASTOCHEM or WITTMANN BATTENFELD extend their exhibition space year by year, we see the return of such firms as MAPRO and MOLD-MASTERS. Foreign exhibitors in a premiere include the Slovak company MIKON, ADDIPLAST from France or the Israeli company POLYMER GVULOT. The domestic industry newcomers include Plastics Cluster and Company G-FIX with industrial adhesives and aerosols.
Another branch, which already occupies a larger area than last year, covers Drives, Hydraulics and Pneumatics. After three years, FESTO company exhibits once again, offering pneumatic components; the CHARVÁT Group is an example of a company expanding their exhibition area and new participants include Austrian GKN Service Austria in the field of hydraulic components and systems.

  
A display of advanced technologies
This year primarily focuses on the efficiency of industrial production. New solutions for efficient use of inputs, reduced energy consumption and materials and thus increased competitiveness come to the fore. An offer of these advanced technologies is far beyond just power generation industry, but rather permeates all sectors. Yet specifically the whole Power Engineering and Heavy-Current Electrical Engineering branch is where organizers expect interesting participation. For the first time, the Russian company Atomexpo will be a regular exhibitor in the field of Nuclear energy and after a few years, Phoenix-Zeppelin Electric Division are back at MSV, offering power generators.  
The Czech Association of Energy Sector Employers as expert guarantor will be present, representing member firms and vocational schools at their stand. They will also participate in the accompanying programme on "Strategies For Competitive, Sustainable and Safe Energy".  
The premiere participation of Camfil Farr, a world leader in production and development of air filters and air cleaning solutions deserves attention in the field of environmental technology. An interesting fact which also confirms the positive development of the economy, is the highest ever participation of financial institutions - banks, insurance companies and leasing companies in the branch of Research, Services and Institutions.
It remains to be said that this year's focus on optimizing costs and streamlined manufacturing will be complemented by the 6th International Fair for Transport and Logistics organized in parallel. Transport and Logistics offers innovative solutions for procurement, warehousing, handling, packaging and distribution of goods.

  
Foreign exhibitors return
  The industrial market in Central Europe is growing and companies from Western Europe, but also from other parts of the world want to take advantage of new business opportunities. "We are delighted by increased interest by direct foreign exhibitors, mainly from Germany, Slovakia and Italy," said Jiří Rousek in this context. Visitors will get to know the offer of a wide range of major companies, who have never exhibited in Brno before, but who feel that this year was the right time to penetrate new markets. One of the foreign exhibitors who will attend MSV for the first time, is a global company BS&B Safety Systems based in the Netherlands that develops and manufactures special components and equipment for pressure measuring and control.
Traditionally, most applications arrive from Germany, especially in the fields of machine tools and materials and components for mechanical engineering. Two dozen German exhibitors applied for participation in the fair for the first time, and German participation generally exceeds last year with both the number of firms and occupied surface space. Individual German Lands again want to extensively present themselves and prepare their official participation, representing dozens of companies from various industrial fields. The largest exhibitions will feature Baden - Wuerttemberg and Bavaria, followed by Hessen, Thuringia and after a pause, Saxony and Rhineland - Palatinate return to Brno too.
Another interesting return is the official Swiss participation, organized by the Switzerland - Czech Republic Chamber of Commerce. Other Swiss companies exhibit separately, namely in the field of machine tools, among them for example Swisstool Export - Gruppe or TEXIMP. A large stand of Alfleth Engineering will feature eighteen companies from Switzerland, Germany, Italy, France and India.

Official stands, which clearly show how much weight each country attaches to MSV in Brno, will be opened by several more countries. Traditional Slovak participation is guaranteed by the Ministry of Economy SR, Austrian participation takes place under the auspices of the Austrian Embassy Commercial Department and the French participation is supported by the French-Czech Chamber of Commerce. This year’s attractions include the planned official participation of Belarus, and even two large stands of export promotion institutions from Turkey, which document the current boom of this new economic power. There will of course be also non-European exhibitors, among whom mainly companies from India and China rose in numbers.


Poland is the partner country of MSV 2011
  For the fourth time, the Brno Trade Fair continues in the tradition of partner countries, which gradually welcomed Germany, Slovakia, Austria and this year it is Poland - currently the third most important trading partner of the Czech Republic. The Polish partnership takes place under the patronage of the Polish Minister of Economy Waldemar Pawlak and his office supported the significant participation of Polish exhibitors at this year's MSV. This fair is included among nineteen events, where the state pays 50 percent of the costs to Polish firms (up to CZK 150,000).
Poland will have its official exhibition stand at this MSV located in the central Hall V and it will include an exhibition of industrial design. The Poland - MSV 2011 Partner Country project  will also comprise bilateral events lead by the second year the of Czech - Polish Economic Forum, which was first held at the Polish embassy in Prague in 2010.


Industry seeks young professionals...
  ... and the International Engineering Fair organizers meet its needs. After a two-year break the JobFair project will be here again, responding to the new demands of employers for skilled workers. "After a period of stagnation, a lack of young professionals in engineering and other industries is again beginning to show, which a sign of continuing recovery. The JobFair should help solve this problem," Jiří Rousek explained. Purpose of the JobFair project which was held last at MSV 2008 is to facilitate contacts between employers in different industries, and job seekers, including students. 
An attractive contest for young mechanical engineers in CNC machine tools programming continues at the fair at the same time, while in the past years it received a very favourable response. It is organised by the Association of Engineering Technology and the young contestants produce a programme specified by a drawing directly on site within a time limit. The best results of their work are directly applied to the exhibited machines and the winners take away a workpiece made according to their programme.
The Technology Transfer and Innovation project enters its third year – a trade fair contact centre with a presentation of universities and scientific research capacities offered to the industry. Technical universities and research centres will be provided space in Hall A1, and again there will also be a foreign exhibitors, among them the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
