Registration Opens for the International Trade Fair Trio Intec, Z and GrindTec

Preparations have begun for the next edition of the industrial trade fairs Intec, Z and GrindTec. From 11 to 14 March 2025, the trade fair trio will be welcoming the metals processing, subcontracting and machine tool industries to Leipziger Messe for the first important industry event of the year in Europe. This international trade fair trio brings together providers and operators from all over Europe, thus creating a central point of contact for companies looking to enter the markets in eastern Germany and its neighbouring countries. Registration is now open for exhibitors.

In March of this year, globally active technology leaders from the machine tool industry, renowned providers of precision tools, specialists for automation solutions, innovative suppliers and well-known providers of tool processing systems, among others, used Intec, Z and GrindTec as an attractive, efficient marketplace. The latest edition of the international trade fair trio was a great success. 821 exhibitors from 29 countries presented their new products and 19,300 visitors from 49 countries attended the event.

“Our trade fair trio has proved itself to be innovative, high-performance and international. Exhibitors and visitors alike were very satisfied with the trade fairs. This gives us a great basis for our preparations for the next edition of Intec, Z and GrindTec”, explains Markus Geisenberger, Chief Executive Officer of Leipziger Messe: “In 2025, the trade fair trio will once again offer an optimum start to the year's investment decisions, making it a must-attend event in the industry. Exhibitors and visitors can look forward to four days packed with inspiration, networking and great business opportunities.”

Proven and Successful Trade Fair Concept Remains in Place

At Intec, Z and GrindTec 2025, new technologies in the metals processing, subcontracting and machine tool industries will once again be in the spotlight. Intec is dedicated to informing visitors about machine tools, machine components, tools and clamping devices as well as manufacturing automation and robotics. Z specialises in flexible and innovative subcontracting services for the industry, whereas GrindTec focuses on abrasives and grinding machines as well as tool machining systems and their automation. "Our trade fair trio covers the entire value chain in metal processing. The three trade fairs complement each other perfectly. We plan to continue with this successful concept and further develop it to meet the needs of the industry. For example, we want to attract and inspire more visitors from Eastern European countries such as Poland and the Czech Republic to the internationally orientated GrindTec in the future. This has already worked very successfully at Intec and Z for many years", explains Project Director Ulrike Lange.

Alongside numerous conversations at the exhibition stands about current trends in the industry, the conference programme will provide information on trending topics for the future such as additive manufacturing and value creation from hydrogen. Additional topics in focus include the challenges and opportunities of digitisation, sustainable production and the efficient use of resources, as well as the issue of recruiting new talent to the industry.

First Exhibitors from Germany and Abroad Have Already Registered

Companies interested in taking part in the next edition of Intec, Z and GrindTec can now register online. The first companies from Germany and abroad have already secured their stand spaces. Companies registering by 14 October 2024 can benefit from discounted stand prices.
