German organisers with a strong presence abroad
German exhibition organisers are planning 316 foreign trade fairs in 38 countries in 2017, reports the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (AUMA). A total of 16 members of AUMA organise their own trade fairs abroad. The number of trade fairs will grow especially strongly in the Middle East. Africa will be represented more strongly in 2017 as well, while a small decrease will be recorded in South, East and Central Asia, Europe and North America. Nonetheless, the main regions continue to be Southern, Eastern and Central Asia, where 154 events will be taking place, followed by European non-EU countries (65), the Middle East (25), North America (23), the EU (18), Latin America (19), Africa (10) and Australia/Oceania (2). These trade fairs cover almost the entire spectrum of industry including the machinery, the textile and food industry, agriculture and forestry, medical technology, automation and construction technology.
