Exhibitor Information

The Intec International Trade Fair for Machine Tools, Manufacturing and Automation is now a regular event in the European trade fair calendar. Embedded in an environment characterised by the manufacturing industry, mechanical and plant engineering, the automotive industry and renowned research institutions, the fair is an efficient, practice-oriented platform both for globally active industry leaders and innovative and solution-oriented SMEs from all over Germany and Europe.

Good reasons to exhibit

Leading trade fair

Intec takes place in the spring, therefore providing an ideal platform for the first investment decisions of the year. The main focus is on machine tools and systems for upstream and downstream processes in automated production as well as the entire spectrum of manufacturing technology for metal processing. There is no other trade fair where eastern German machine tool production is so well and widely represented.

Knowledge transfer and networking

As a hotspot for interdisciplinary technology with a conference programme that brings together research and practice as well as economic policy and international cooperation, Intec is an essential event for dialogue between providers and users.

Skilled, professional visitors

The professionals visiting Intec work in industrial processing, trades, services and research. Over half of them are directly involved in decision-making processes. One in five visitors travels over 200 km to the fair from countries such as Poland and the Czech Republic. For more than one in three visitors, the Intec in Leipzig is the only fair they attend.

Strong double act

The trade fair combination of Intec and the Z Subcontracting Fair is unique in Europe and focuses on mechanical and plant engineering, the automotive sector and other applications in the metal and plastics processing industry. Exhibitors and visitors to both fairs can benefit from the synergies this creates.
