In just ten weeks, the Ceramitec 2012 trade fair opens in Munich, Germany, and it’s looking like it will be everything the organizers have been promising.

According to a press release last week, there will be about 600 exhibitors, with more than half of them hailing from outside of Germany. That includes The American Ceramic Society; come see us in hall B6, booth 127. The companies are from all regions of the globe: Europe, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Iran, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Peru, Russia, Ukraine and the U.S. New to the exhibit hall this year will be companies from Taiwan and South Africa.

Some of the manufacturers that visitors can expect to see include Bedeschi, Bongioanni, Burton, Dorst, Eirich, Eisenmann, Frey, Grün, Händle, Imerys, Keller H.C.W., Komage-Gellner, Laeis, Lingl, Lippert, Loomis, Morgan Technical Ceramics, Netzsch, Osterwalder, Reimbold & Strick, Riedhammer, Sabo Hellas, SACMI, Saint-Gobain, Sama, Stephan Schmidt, Tecnofiliere, Tecton, Treibacher and Zschimmer & Schwarz.

Energy efficiency will be central theme of the trade fair, and there will be lectures and panel discussions on the topic as part of the Ceramitec Forum. The forum is described as “platform for information gathering, knowledge-transfer and for research and development.”

There is much more to the fair that warrants a perusal of the well-organized Ceramitec 2012 website.
