Motek Stuttgart

08. - 11. October 2024 | World's leading trade fair for automation in production and assembly

Founded in 1982, the Motek in Stuttgart has established itself as the leading global trade fair for production and assembly automation, feed technology, material flow, as well as streamlining through handling technology and industrial handling. Every October, it showcases cutting-edge achievements in mechanical engineering and automation process chains. Organized by the renowned P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG, the Motek stands out as a unique fair representing the entire process chain within these sectors..

Messe Stuttgart, one of the most modern exhibition centers in Europe, offers the perfect backdrop for Motek. Not only are innovative solutions from the core areas displayed, but advanced detail and system solutions for efficiency and economic improvements in various industrial sectors are also presented. Key industries such as automobile manufacturing, machinery and equipment production, the electrical and electronics sectors, medical technology, solar production, as well as metal and plastic processing companies and their suppliers, are the primary target groups of the fair.

A distinctive feature of the Motek is its integration of other trade fairs. In combination with Bondexpo, an international trade fair for adhesive technology, valuable synergies arise. This combination expands the potential visitor base and business opportunities, and also brings future-relevant industry topics to the forefront. A high-quality supporting program, addressing current and future trends, enhances the fair's offerings and is greatly appreciated by both visitors and exhibitors.

In summary, the Motek in Stuttgart is an essential rendezvous for professionals in the fields of automation, material flow, and handling technology. It not only represents the technological vanguard in these sectors but also serves as an excellent platform for networking, knowledge exchange, and business development. Within the impressive setting of Messe Stuttgart, thousands of industry professionals gather annually to explore innovations and actively shape the future of the industry.
