The editorial team at publishing house TIMGlobal Media share their views on the successful return for European B2B fairs so far in 2023.
The expectations for the first industrial fairs in 2023 were quite high. LogiMAT, HANNOVER MESSE, and Interpack in Düsseldorf, as well as MECSPE in Bologna or the upcoming SPS Italia event in Parma, are some of the highlights in a diverse portfolio of industrial events.
Industrial exhibitors continue to rely on direct dialogue with their customers and the intensive exchange of personal conversations to find solutions for individual problems. The first events of 2023 have also shown that international visitors from the Americas and Asia are back to meet their peers.
Across all the different industrial sectors present at shows, companies are looking for answers from three areas. What are the solutions to the shortage of skilled personnel and talents? How can supply chains be strengthened and organised more resilient for the future? What measures need to be taken to control (energy) costs and make the necessary contribution to the industrial transformation of society and industry?
To find exciting new answers and deliver solutions to our readers, for us as a B2B publisher, trade fairs are still an important place to discover new products, and trends and to talk to experts from different sized companies from start-ups to global groups. Without this diversity of information, it would be much more difficult to gain an overview of many different technologies and to identify the topics that are relevant to our industrial readers in their daily work or that will soon become important for them.
