Supplier Show for Mechanical Engineering
A very important reason for the high innovation density in OWL is the intensive networking of the companies. FMB – The Supplier Show for Mechanical Engineering is not only a part of this network but has been an important communication platform for this network since 2005.
Currently, the 16th FMB (04 to 06 November 2020) is being prepared. The booking status is good, and there are special reasons for this year. Christian Enßle, Portfolio Manager FMB: "The exhibitors, with whom we see a lively exchange of ideas, miss personal access to customers and potential customers. We therefore expect that the need for communication and information will be high in the second half of the year.
In addition to the technology trends - above all digitisation - the trade fair organisers believe that this year there will be a topic that will be discussed more intensively than in previous years. Chris-tian Enßle: "Many companies have found that their supply chains are unstable during the crisis. In the coming months, they will reassess their purchasing strategies from this point of view and, for example, build up second suppliers or increasingly rely on regional suppliers. The FMB offers the perfect forum for this. And it shows the innovations of the suppliers in a Europe-wide "hotspot" for automation, digitalisation and Industry 4.0.
