The EMTE-EASTPO Machine Tool Exhibition will be held in Shanghai at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre from 14 to 17 July 2014. The joint exhibition will leverage on the combined strengths and expertise of three partners: CECIMO, EASTPO Culture Development, and MP Organisation.
Mr Filip Geerts, director general of CECIMO, the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries, says: “Our purpose is to meet the need of European machine tool builders to have another machine tool exhibition at the right place: Shanghai and time: on even years to meet their potential customers. This exhibition should respond to our quality standards for exhibitors and visitors.”
CECIMO had the great opportunity to partner with EASTPO and MP to jointly organize a large-scale machine tool trade exhibition in Shanghai for the Asian market. It gave CECIMO the opportunity to graft itself to one of the three largest machine tool exhibitions in China and the region, namely the Shanghai International Machine Tool Fair, better known as EASTPO. The collaboration agreement was signed by the partners in Singapore on 19 February 2013.
Responsible for securing the bid against strong European contenders, Ms Sylvia Phua, CEO of MP lnternational, said: “We are deeply honoured to be selected by CECIMO as their partner in this venture. This is yet another endorsement of MP’s capabilities as an international exhibition organiser.”
