Moulding Expo: Next regular trade fair in 2023

Moulding Expo: Next regular trade fair in 2023

Lack of prospects forcing the industry and the organiser to cancel the event in 2021 // Virtual Innovation Day will provide access to trade fair highlights


Moulding Expo will not take place in 2021. Since the last Minister-President Conference also did not open up any prospects for the trade fair industry, it is no longer realistic to successfully stage Moulding Expo in June 2021. In addition, the risk for everyone involved is too high. The trade fair advisory board, whose members include exhibitors such as DMG Mori, Meusburger and Deckerform, along with the professional and promotional supporters, i.e. the Federal Association of Pattern and Mould Making (BVMF), the VDMA Precision Tools Association, the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association (VDW) and the German Association of Tool and Mould Makers (VDWF), felt compelled to decide not to hold the trade fair in June 2021. The next regular Moulding Expo will be held as scheduled at Messe Stuttgart from 13 to 16 June 2023.


Right up to the very end Messe Stuttgart attempted, in its capacity as the organiser of Moulding Expo, to satisfy the wish of the European tool, pattern and mould making industry and its suppliers for the popular and important physical industry meeting point. Road of Tooling Innovation was added to the accompanying programme as an additional highlight while the trade fair profile was further enhanced with a revised forum concept and the Aachen Tool Making Academy (WBA) as a new partner.


By staging a virtual Innovation Day on 10 June 2021, the organisers of Moulding Expo now want to implement an initial and purposeful measure on the road to Moulding Expo 2023. The objective is to make the highlights from the planned accompanying and talk programme in 2021 internationally accessible at no cost despite the cancellation of the physical trade fair. This virtual Innovation Day is being organised in agreement with and through the support of the trade fair partners. Further information and a detailed programme will be published shortly.


About Moulding Expo

Whether a hidden champion or a large group, the best that the first-class international tool, pattern and mould making industry and its suppliers have to offer will meet at Moulding Expo from 13 to 16 June 2023.


The international trade fair for tool, pattern and mould making is divided into several exhibition areas. The focal point of Moulding Expo is the tool, pattern and mould making industry which is very user-oriented with its injection moulding tools, die-cast moulds and forming tools, as well as gauge construction and jig and fixtures manufacturing. The trade fair also features systems and service providers in the areas of plastics technology and metalworking: from machine tool manufacturers, material suppliers, hot runner suppliers, measuring and test equipment suppliers and machining tool manufacturers through to software companies.
