MSV 2015: A traditional industry meeting with new impulses

In odd-numbered years, it is a tradition at MSV to highlight transport and logistics sectors, and this year will be no different. After four years, the specialized exhibition Transport and Logistics returns to the Exhibition Centre; in 2011 there were 129 companies from 12 countries that took part, the proportion of foreign exhibitors reached 38%. The Transport and Logistics Fair in Brno will take place for the seventh time and highest participation is again expected in the fields of handling, assembly machines and equipment and storage technology.

The structure of MSV 2015 itself remains, the trade fair is again divided into nine sectors, with a whole new specialized section, Industrial Zones and Regional Development. Especially cities and regions can use this opportunity to present their industrial businesses development programmes, technology parks, unused properties and sites for construction. The partner of this section and the accompanying seminar on the same topic will be CzechInvest. The central theme of MSV 2015 remains: the Automation project – a presentation of measurement, control, automation and control technology across all disciplines. The project will also be very attractive to visitors with its Robotic Park, which will showcase the latest industrial robots able to work with people. The accompanying programme will again accentuate the topic of Digital Factory.

At the same time, the highlighting of foreign partners continues and the Special Focus Country of MSV 2015 will be South Korea. For the first time in history, approximately 15 South Korean companies will come to exhibit in Brno and the possibilities for cooperation between the two industrialized countries will be discussed in the accompanying programme. Another very interesting premiere event, the Reverse Exhibition, will be organized by the Japanese government agency for promotion of trade and investment JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization). A one-day exhibition of products where their Japanese producers are looking for suppliers among Czech firms will be an excellent opportunity to establish business relations.

The MSV, Transport and Logistics and ENVITECH trade fairs will take place from 14 to 18 September 2015. The organizers want to build on the successful last year, which was attended by 1636 exhibiting companies, among them 944 (57.7%) were from abroad. MSV 2014 was visited by 76 155 visitors from 53 countries, 10% among them were from abroad.
