The international ceramics trade fair ceramitec, which took place at Messe München on June 21–24, featured 356 exhibitors from thirty-four countries and attracted over 10,000 attendees from eighty-four countries.

Given the travel restrictions still in place for a number of countries, and geo-political uncertainties, the organisers were keen to highlight the trade fair’s positive response. “We’re very happy with how the trade fair went,” stated Dr Jürgen Blumm, Managing Director of Netzsch-Gerätebau and chairman of the advisory board for ceramitec. “Naturally, the number of visitors was down, but we did have an above-average number of specific inquiries regarding short-term investment needs from companies all over the world. That’s why ceramitec 2022 is already a great success for us.”

Hélder Almeida, Sales Manager at metalcértima, added, “The quality and international mix of specialist visitors was truly at a very high level. The people who were at our stand wanted to do business with us.”

Karl Liedel, an authorised representative of Lingl Anlagenbau, explained, “Our expectations for ceramitec 2022 were more than met. Many familiar faces stopped by the stand, but numerous new contacts were also made. Right now, it’s vital that we talk about decarbonisation and help customers to save energy. That requires platforms like ceramitec, as they provide a place where experts can meet to discuss things. Last but not least, attending ceramitec confirmed for us that personal contact is more important than ever.”

Mathilde Forestier, Communication and Events Director, Pôle Européen de la Céramique, which organised a joint stand with fifteen co-exhibitors and two trade forums in the conference program, emphasised, “Our presentations attracted large numbers of visitors. The people were well-versed and interested in what was on offer. Specifically, during the discussions afterwards, we often saw that solutions and innovations are also needed especially in processing many different materials and thermal processes in order to meet the current challenges.”

Collin Davis, Executive Director of Capital Goods Shows at Messe München, stated, “I was delighted that the trade fair attracted so many specialist visitors from countries abroad. This proves how important ceramitec is on an international level. However, feedback from our exhibitors indicates very clearly that personal contact at trade fairs is essential. More than once, I heard people saying, ‘Finally, we can meet in person again’.”

The next ceramitec trade fair is scheduled to be held in Munich, Germany, April 23–26, 2024.
