The EMO metal working trade show’s organisation confirmed until 2027

EMO Milano 2015 will be followed by EMO Hannover 2017 and 2019.

The European Association of the Machine Tool Industry (CECIMO), owner of the brand EMO, signed an agreement with the German machine tool builders’ association (VDW) and Fondazione UCIMU, the operating structure of UCIMU-Sistemi per produrre, the association of Italian manufacturers of machine tools, robots, and automation systems, to secure the organisation of the next six editions of the EMO trade show on behalf of CECIMO.


The EMO fair shall take place in the following sequences:

• 2017: Hannover – Germany
• 2019: Hannover – Germany
• 2021: Milan – Italy
• 2023: Hannover – Germany
• 2025: Hannover – Germany
• 2027: Milan – Italy

EMO is the leading international trade fair for the machine tool industry
EMO covers the entire bandwidth of the global machine tool market. At its last edition, EMO Hannover 2013, taking place from 16 to 21 September, over 2,100 exhibitors from 43 different countries were present to showcase their innovations to industrial users from around the world under the event’s slogan of ‘Intelligence in Production’. Over the six days of EMO, the event attracted a total of just under 145,000 trade visitors from over 100 different nations. Visitors from outside Germany numbered more than 50,000, or one in three.


A long-lasting successful partnership
VDW (Germany) and UCIMU (Italy) are member associations of CECIMO and they represent the two most important European countries in terms of machine tool production and consumption. Both organisations have an excellent track record in organising EMO on behalf of CECIMO, and CECIMO is very pleased to continue the fruitful collaboration.

‘Let’s build the future’ at EMO Milano 2015
Italy will host the 2015 edition of EMO at the prestigious exhibition centre Fiera Milano from 5 to 10 October. Visitors can expect to find machines to build the future: cutting-edge solutions making it possible to achieve what mankind has imagined, technologies to improve our quality of life, and much more. The wide offer of machine tools presented will attract users from all the sectors using metal working systems. A record number of visitors are expected at the 2015 edition of EMO Milano because it takes place during the last stretch of Expo Milano 2015, and because the Italian government has agreed to refinance its “Sabatini” law, which has been such a boost for the purchase of machine tools in Italy.

EMO’s origins
Since its creation in 1950, CECIMO has committed itself to the promotion of the machine tool industry worldwide and a machine tool exhibition was created for this reason in 1951. It was organised for the first time under the name of EMO (Exposition de la Machine-Outil) in 1975 in Paris. The EMO fair takes place every uneven year and in 2003, the initial EMO cycle (Hanover-Paris-Hanover-Milan) was modified by CECIMO into Hanover-Hanover-Milan. EMO® is a registered trademark by CECIMO and receives the support of its fifteen member national associations.
