Many sub-sectors of the metal-working industry are included with the branches of industry "Manufacture of basic metals" and "Manufacture of fabricated metal products". Manufacture of basic metals includes the production of pig iron, production of steel and non-ferrous metals and their processing: cold drawing, forging, drawing. The Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy divides the production of metal products into the following sectors: steel industry, non-ferrous metal industry, foundry industry, and steel and metal processing.
It is true that the golden age of the coal and steel industry in Germany has long been history. However, Germany as a location for the metalworking industry remains one of the country's main economic pillars for all stakeholders. Especially the know-how of the small and medium-sized enterprises, grown networks in the value chain and political reliability ensure the attractiveness of Germany as a location.
In Germany - as the No. 1 trade fair country - the most important leading trade fairs also take place in the metalworking sector. In the following you will find three examples.
CWIEME is the acronym for "Coil Winding, Insulation and Electrical Manufacturing Exhibition" and is an exhibition for the coil winding, electric motor, transformer, generator and electric mobility industries.
A must for all stakeholders of components, production technologies and raw materials as a supply chain for coil windings, generators, transformers, electric motors and electric mobility technologies. Exhibitors and visitors come from EMEA (Europe, Middle-East & Africa), Asia and America. The Hyve Group also hosts the CWIEME in Shanghai and Chicago, in addition to the CWIEME in Berlin.
In addition to the exhibition, which will take place in four halls of the Berlin Exhibition Grounds, the organiser will also be offering a matchmaking service that will connect buyers, CEOs and engineers with the right exhibitors. The Connect app was developed for this purpose for 2020.
In the last few years, CWIEME has developed from a rather visually "boring and nerdy" trade fair to a very chic leading trade fair for the industry. Anyone who regularly visited the fair could see that the stands were becoming more and more attractive and eye-catching from year to year. The stands have become more exclusive with private meeting cabins, meet & greet areas, elaborate displays and exhibits.
With the Event-Metrics data, it can be seen that the first day of CWIEME is used for visitors to look around the fair, gather impressions of the stands and also to look at them several times. On this "walking around day", the number of visitors is evenly distributed throughout the day.
The second day of CWIEME is the busiest day of the fair and visitors are more intensively engaged with the exhibitors' products and services. The average time spent at the stand is therefore around 25 minutes. During the presentation times at 11am and 3pm, there is a drop in visitor numbers.
The third day of the fair is the last day of this three-day event and the least visited day of the fair. This also means that the number of visitors at the exhibition stands is declining. In addition to the number of visitors, the average duration of discussions is also reduced. The median here is 20 minutes and becomes even lower towards the afternoon.
The HARDWARE FAIR is the largest and most international exhibition of its kind in the world. The fair takes place regularly every two years. Due to the Corona Pandemic, the date for 2020 was cancelled and moved to February 2021. The fair is divided into four thematic areas:
In an area of 165,000m² 2,770 exhibitors will present themselves. In 2018 about 47,000 visitors visited the fair. This represents an increase of 9% to 2016. 87% of the exhibitors and around 70% of the visitors came from abroad.
With "Global Competence in Hardware", Koelnmesse has bundled its worldwide portfolio in the hardware sector with the intention of offering exhibitors a wealth of advantages through worldwide networking. This network includes the Hardware Fair Cologne, Hardware Forum Italy, China International Hardware Show and Asia Pacific Sourcing.
According to official figures from the organizer Koelnmesse, there were approximately 47,000 visitors at the INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR in 2018. The first day of the fair shows large fluctuations in the number of visitors per hour, while on the second day of the fair there are 2,000 to 2,200 visitors in the exhibition hall, making this day the most visited day of the INTERNATIONAL HARDWARE FAIR.
On the last two days the number of visitors has been falling steadily. While Event-Metrics still recorded 16,500 visitors on 06.03., only 12,500 visitors were measured on the last day. From 2pm on the last day of the fair, the number of fair visitors decreases rapidly.

The name SPS is derived from the English "smart production solutions". The annual fair deals with the topics: Smart and digital automation, simple sensors or intelligent solutions. The SPS Nuremberg is the highlight in the automation industry. The range is broad, but the focus is currently on digital transformation in industry. The SPS as an innovation platform and source of ideas ensures exchange and networking with competence at eye level.
In 2019 SPS had 1,585 exhibitors, 548 of them international, and the 63,700 trade visitors are proof that SPS is highly relevant to the industry.
In addition, there will be various accompanying events, such as trade fair forums by, for example, the two associations ZVEI and VDMA with specialist presentations and discussion rounds. In 2018, Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH organised a Hackaton for the first time. The aim is to create new business models, such as cloud, machine learning, big data or artificial intelligence.
SPS Italia, SPS Automation Middle East and SIAF Guanzhou are worldwide branches of SPS Nürnberg.
According to the fair, there are 1,585 exhibitors and about 63,000 visitors. The analysis of Event-Metrics data shows that the first day of the fair is weak with just over 6,000 visitors.
