GrindingHub debut a resounding success, organiser reports

GrindingHub 2022 has proved a major success, the event organiser has announced. More than 370 exhibitors showcased their latest grinding technology innovations, products and solutions on almost 18,000m2 of exhibition space.

A total of 9,500 visitors visited the three fully booked halls, with around 40% of them coming from abroad.

Wilfried Schäfer, executive director of the organiser VDW (German Machine Tool Builders' Association), commented: "We are more than satisfied with the success of this first ever GrindingHub. The entire concept, planning and organisation were a triumph. The new trade show for grinding technology proved a complete success thanks to the great response from visitors and the strong commitment of the exhibitors.”

The manufacturers from 23 countries pulled out all the stops for the debut event. They exhibited numerous grinding-related innovations – everything from new tool concepts through to innovative processes, procedures, and interface technologies.

A total of more than 240 machines worked live at the exhibition ground, many of them on large stands. After more than two years, visitors were finally able to experience grinding technology live and at first hand again.

The full exhibition halls as well as productive conversations and meetings were gratifying for exhibitors. Dirk Weber, executive director of Haas Schleifmaschinen in Trossingen summed it up: "What a great setting. Everything is so well organised and this is a great location – ideal conditions for the event. My overall impression on this third day of the event is excellent. It has been a great experience exhibiting here, and I can only recommend everyone to come to Stuttgart and the GrindingHub.”

Stefan Brand, managing director of Vollmer Werke, added: "Right from the outset, the halls have been full, the stand has been full – what more could a manager ask for?"

A visitor survey gave the debut event a grade of 1.8 on a scale from 1 to 6. Nearly 90% of respondents stated they would recommend GrindingHub to others, and 76% are intending to return for the next event in two years. In addition, one third of visitors said they were planning to follow up on investment and purchasing ideas they obtained at the show. Almost three quarters of all visitors have a decisive or advisory say in purchasing decisions within their companies.

The next GrindingHub is scheduled for 14-17 May 2024 in Stuttgart.
