Ceramitec 2024 organiser Messe München has announced the conclusion of another successful event. The biennial show included some 466 exhibitors from thirty-six countries across 33,000 m2 of exhibition floor space. Attendees numbered over 13,000 from eighty-four countries, an increase of 30% over the 2022 exhibition.

“Ceramitec 2024 is a great success,” added Dr Jürgen Blumm, Managing Director of Netzsch-Gerätebau and Chairman of the ceramitec Advisory Board. “Compared to the last event in 2022, there were significantly more visitors and many new contacts made. The exhibiting companies also showcased innovations this year, especially in the areas of automation, sustainability and energy efficiency. All in all, it is a great event with many world premieres and advancements from the exhibitors along with many enthusiastic visitors.”

With a strong contingent from outside of Germany, the event proved again its global appeal. “With an international share of 57% of visitors and 65% of exhibitors, ceramitec has clearly demonstrated its relevance for the ceramics industry as a whole,” stated Collin Davis, Executive Director at Messe München. “We have seen the topics here that are driving the industry, from digitalisation to zero emissions, decarbonisation and resource efficiency as well as new applications for ceramic solutions — at the stands, but also in our conference programme.”

Stephan Eirich, President of Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich, stated, “Ceramitec 2024 once again made Munich the world capital of the ceramics industry. Numerous decision-makers and experts were on hand providing deep insights into the challenges and opportunities facing the industry. The result was productive talks highlighting genuine interest in technical solutions and innovations.”

Johannes Heckmann, CEO of Nabaltec AG, said, “For us, ceramitec is the trade fair in Europe where the refractory and ceramics industry comes together. As always, the quality of discussions with the expert audience is outstanding.”

Dr Moritz von Witzleben, Managing Director at Inmatec Technologies, added, “For us, ceramitec is an industry highlight and the most important trade fair – there is simply no alternative.”

The next ceramitec will take place from March 24-26, 2026, again in parallel with analytica, the world’s leading trade fair for laboratory technology, analysis and biotechnology, at the exhibition grounds in Munich.
