Digital Meeting Place for Production and Assembly Automation

The digital trade fair platforms for Motek-Virtual and Bondexpo-Virtual are enjoying great demand. The online marketplaces are currently proving to be highly effective instruments for maintaining contact between manufacturers and users, and for implementing smart solutions for production and assembly in industrial applications.

The Motek international trade fair for automation in production and assembly, and the Bondexpo, international trade fair for bonding technology, have gotten off to a successful start with their new digital trade fair platforms, namely Motek-Virtual and Bondexpo-Virtual. Exhibitors and expert visitors alike can make convenient use of these virtual alternatives without risk or effort, and exhibitors can present their product innovations and trade fair highlights to an expert audience and maintain business relations with their customers. Ever since trade fair promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG and the exhibitor advisory board decided to postpone the trade fair from 2020 to next year and launched the virtual platforms, visitors and exhibitors have been using the new digital meeting places to ask questions and provide answers concerning industrial automation issues.

New Products and Sustainability Features

The exhibitors unveil their trade fair highlights and product innovations in virtual showrooms with a user-friendly structure. In addition to presenting photos, texts, data sheets and brochures, exhibiting companies also announce dates for exciting webcasts, for which trade visitors can register directly in the showrooms.

The fact that many exhibitors are highlighting their sustainability features to an ever greater extent is noteworthy. In times during which the personal professional exchange of information has been largely broken off due to the pandemic, the virtual trade fair presentation is a welcome and valuable opportunity for presenting new products and solutions for industrial production and assembly automation to potential customers. The integrated RFQ for individualised problem-solving, which generates direct business contacts, is particularly useful in this respect.

Economic Automation Solutions for Potential Customers Too

For many companies from the fields of production and assembly automation, as well as joining and bonding technology, the Motek/Bondexpo trade fair duo is one of the most important technical events each year – for the exhibitors as well as the expert visitors ... because industrial users need practically implementable and commercially viable automation solutions for modern production, especially in economically difficult times. And thus with the virtual format for the 39th Motek and the 14th Bondexpo, the globally recognised Motek/Bondexpo industry event offers a valuable opportunity for gathering information about 2020’s trade fair highlights at a digital marketplace in a concise and compact manner. Expert visitors can use the thematically focused search engine to accurately select any desired information via the trade fair’s nomenclature, or obtain relevant hits by entering keywords, and they can send RFQs for individualised problem-solving directly via the functional hit list.

Together with the exhibitors, trade fair promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG are steadfastly preparing for the next leading trade fair for the world of automation, namely Motek/Bondexpo 2021, with the objective of being fit for the future. Motek’s spectrum of products and services including components, assemblies, subsystems and complete systems for automated production and assembly, combined with joining technology as an essential constituent of industrial manufacturing, will be presented in Stuttgart from the 5th through the 8th of October, 2021.
