Aug 21, 2014 | By CENS

Continuing to promote buyer guides that help Taiwanese manufacturers, exporters and traders explore markets overseas, CENS attended three global trade shows in July, including EASTPO-Shanghai International Machine Tool Fair, PAACE Automechanika Mexico, and EMMA Fair Myanmar.

EMTE and EASTPO-Shanghai International Machine Tool Fair
EASTPO-Shanghai International Machine Tool Fair is a one-stop platform for leading manufacturers seeking to penetrate the dynamic marketplace in Asia. The fair this year jointly took place with EMTE for the first time, running July 14-17 at Shanghai New International Expo Center in Shanghai, China.

Some 650 international exhibitors from 24 countries showcased their latest machinery & related equipment, with the four-day fair drawing some 47,754 visitors from 54 nations. Local visitors made up the majority of the participants with the biggest groups coming from provinces and cities in southeastern China, namely Anhui, Jiangsu, Shanghai and Zhejiang, with buyers from India, Japan, South Korea and Southeast Asia making up the majority of international visitors.

EMTE-EASTPO is a strategic east-west partnership of two established machine tool show owners from Europe and China, namely ECIMO—the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries and Shanghai EASTPO Culture Development Co., Ltd.

Frank Brinken, chairman of the Economic Committee of CECIMO, remarked at the opening ceremony: “We are very pleased with the outcome of our maiden efforts to stage the first EMTE-EASTPO exhibition—a high quality showcase of innovative technology and practical solutions presented by leading names from around the world.”

The first joint fair featured eight national pavilions and groups from the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, S. Korea, Spain, Switzerland and Taiwan. The fair brought together some of the world's leading machine tool manufacturers eyeing the vast market opportunities in China.

Zhuang He Ting, deputy general manager of Mitsubish Heavy Industries (Shanghai) says: “We have chosen EMTE-EASTPO machine tool exhibition as launch pad to showcase new technologies, products and innovations. The exhibition has proven to be a high quality platform that is well supported by exhibitors and visitors.”

Tornos Technologies (Shanghai) and WhizCut of Sweden AB were also delighted with the quality of visitorship. “The visitor turnout exceeded our expectations. We had over 150 quality business leads from a number of sectors—automotive, aerospace, electronics and electrical, healthcare and watch-making. We transacted on-the-spot sales and will continue a number of negotiations with potential buyers,” says Sun Weimin, general manager (Greater China) of Tornors Technologies (Shanghai).

Chris Schmidt, managing director of WhizCut said: “WhizCut had a great show. The contacts we received are now leading to a lot of good business.”

CENS booth displayed a variety of buyer guides with Taiwan Machinery being most popular.
