This year's MSV International Engineering Fair will take place from 8 to 12 November 2021 in Brno. The main topic will once again be the digitization and automation of industrial processes. The fair will also focus on the field of 3D printing, which is currently quickly developing.
Strengthening contacts with existing customers, new business opportunities and physical presentation of a company and its products. These are the three most common reasons why exhibitors take part in trade fairs. This follows from a survey conducted by Trade Fairs Brno in March 2021. 768 exhibiting companies from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and other countries took part in the survey. The aim of the survey was to answer the question of what potential will trade fairs have in the post-Covid period.
Given the decision of the organizers to cancel this year’s Brno fair Mazak company decided to prepare a series of new activities. These will allow clients and partners to stay in touch with company representatives and new products Mazak company prepared for this year. The activities will include special open days at the company headquarters, virtual seminars and individual meetings with key clients from Czech Republic and Slovakia.
"It was not an easy decision, the most difficult one I had to make. The cancellation of the MSV was a responsible decision towards the exhibitors and all our partners, but at the same time it is a corporate disaster", comments Mr. Jiří Kuliš, CEO of BVV Brno Trade Fairs Co.
Due to the COVID situation, the traditional Brno International Engineering Fair, scheduled for October 5 – 9, held regularly since 1959 at the Brno Exhibition Center, in the Czech Republic has been canceled. The decision was taken the Board of Directors of Veletrhy Brno (BVV Trade Fairs Brno Co.) on June 25, 2020, on the basis of a thorough consideration of all factors and risks associated with the holding of the fair, including an evaluation of the current health rules for trade fairs and mass events. This breaks the long uninterrupted tradition of the fair, which in the last decade has become the leading industrial fair of Central Europe. “The MSV fair has never been canceled. But we had to end the lingering uncertainty surrounding its holding. It was the most difficult decision I ever had to make. After cancellation of AMB Stuttgart, the MSV is another COVID victim among leading European shows," announced Mr. Jiří Kuliš, CEO of BVV Trade Fairs Brno.
The MSV International Engineering Fair is a key European fair in the field of engineering and manufacturing. Despite the current situation, preparations for the 62nd MSV are continuing as planned. The future of industry will be presented in Brno, Czech Republic on 5–9 October 2020.
Robots, the Internet of Things, virtual simulation systems and control by means of artificial intelligence – this year's MSV confirmed the massive advent of digital technology into industrial practice. All covered areas of the exhibition grounds were sold out and the whole Brno lived with the largest Central European trade show. The exhibits of 1,662 exhibiting companies from 30 countries were seen by more than 81 thousand visitors in five days. The companies were satisfied with both the number and quality of visitors and their interest in the exhibited products.
