BIEMH, International Machine Tool Biennial Exhibition, will celebrate its next edition in May 2022. The event’s organising team has decided to postpone the call 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 prevent us from guaranteeing the quality of BIEMH as the main meeting point of the sector, with an appropriate offer adapted to the dimension and relevance of the field of advanced manufacturing and the participation of its main stakeholders. Having reached this point, the managers of the Bilbao Exhibition Centre, AFM-Advanced Manufacturing Technologies and AIMHE-Machine Tool Importers Association of Spain believe that the most reasonable option is to postpone the event. They would like to thank companies for their unconditional support during this period.
We have spent months working intensively, analysing and constantly monitoring the situation. In early March, the BIEMH organising team was forced to postpone the event to be held last May, when the WHO declared the state of Public Health Emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was a difficult decision and we doubled efforts to continue in the front lines as a strategic business tool, working closely alongside companies. In this scenario, we undertook to offer our exhibitors and visitors a completely 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 during these highly complex times.
From this moment onwards, the BIEMH team will work with this same level of commitment, which has characterised our 60-year journey. We strive to offer 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.
