BIEMH, International Machine Tool Biennial Exhibition, will celebrate its next edition in May 2022. The event’s organising team has decided to postpone the event which was to be held next November due to the uncertainties caused by the current context and after collecting the views of exhibiting companies, once the preferential reservation period ended.
The doubts generated by the pandemic make it difficult to guarantee the quality of BIEMH as the main meeting point of the sector, with an appropriate offer adapted to the scale and relevance of advanced manufacturing and the participation of its main stakeholders. At this stage, the managers of the Bilbao Exhibition Centre, AFM-Advanced Manufacturing Technologies and AIMHE-Machine Tool Importers Association of Spain consider that it is more reasonable to delay its celebration and thank companies for their unconditional support during this period.
Intensive work, analysis and constant monitoring have been carried from early March, when the BIEMH organising team was forced to postpone the event to be held last May, after the WHO declared the state of Public Health Emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a difficult decision and efforts were doubled to continue at the front line as a strategic business tool, working closely alongside companies. In this scenario, it was decided to offer exhibitors and visitors a fully tailored format in the month of November. “We make it yours” was the motto chosen to express BIEMH’s will to help the recovery of the sector, in this time of great complexity.
From this moment onwards, the BIEMH team will work with this same level of commitment, which has characterised its 60-year journey, towards the ultimate goal of offering a large-scale international meeting point for leading companies and the most comprehensive vision of 4.0 innovation. The event will be held from 30 May to 3 June 2022.
