72,068 professional buyers during 3-day shows

News 21.03.2018

Asiamold - Guangzhou International Mould & Die Exhibition successfully brought to a close its 12th edition of the fair. Held concurrently with SPS – Industrial Automation Fair Guangzhou from 4 - 6 March at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, the two fairs hosted 896 exhibitors and welcomed 72,068 professional buyers during the three-day shows. Enjoying year-on-year growth, the fairs continue to strengthen their position as a critical trade platform for both the industrial automation and the mould, die casting and additive manufacturing markets in China.

Before commencing her presentation on the 3D printing process, Ms Kim Francois, Managing Director, Materialise China, asked the audience whether they understood or had ever used 3D printing before. When just a few hands were raised from a packed seminar audience, it was clear that despite the undeniable industry buzz and growing awareness of 3D printing, knowledge about its application is still limited. Recognising this demand for a high-level gathering of key industry professionals in the 3D printing sector, Asiamold established the Guangzhou International 3D Printing Technology Application Summit which invited 13 speakers to deliver a range of insights into the industry over the two-day summit. Talks varied from the approach and impact of 3D printing in the China and European markets respectively, to how the mould and 3D printing industries can work together collaboratively.

Feedback from both exhibitors and attendees underlined why a concurrent event programme of talks and seminars is so useful alongside the exhibits. Seminar speaker, Ms Francois, explained: “It’s a no brainer for us as a company to take the opportunity of presenting at the summit and meet people from our target industry. It was a great chance to explain more precisely just what it is that we do and how we can provide important business opportunities for companies not yet incorporating 3D printing technology.”

The overwhelming feedback from both exhibitors and buyers at the show was that new 3D printing technologies do not have to replace traditional manufacturing techniques, but that they can be used by companies to simplify production lines, lower manufacturing costs and speed up production, ultimately increasing revenue and profitability. Many 3D printing exhibitors spoke of new business contacts made at the fair with companies who are in the beginning stages of employing 3D printing technology into their own production lines.

Key figures for AOG18 (combined with SIAF18):

•    896 exhibitors from 20 countries and regions (+12.7%)
•    72,068 visitors from 40 countries and regions (+12.5%)
•    60,000 sqm across 5 halls
•    231 buyer delegate groups (+6%)
•    80 presentations delivered during the concurrent event programmes

High quality seminar programme invites leading industry professionals to shed light on exciting new technologies and solutions

The concurrent event programme was organised to provide a comprehensive business platform for visitors, featuring the debut Automobile Lightweight Product and Technology Summitas well as the Guangzhou International 3D Printing Technology Application Summit.

The new Automobile Lightweight Product and Technology Summit hosted six noted speakers during the conference, delivering in-depth talks about the ways in which the auto industry can make lightweight automobiles by using lightweight materials, laser welding and die-casting. Integrating lightweight materials can thus create a more efficient and cost-effective production process. As the automotive industry is a key sector of visitors to the show, the summit was an ideal learning and research occasion for industry professionals to tap into cross-sector business opportunities.

With such a promising array of mould making, die casting, laser welding and 3D printing technologies on display at the show, it will be fascinating to see the progress of the industry in the South China region by the time Asiamold descends on Guangzhou next year.
