15-18 March 2022 Augsburg Fairground

 In March 2018, The last big meeting of the grinding technology industry took place at the Augsburg Trade Fair Centre in March 2018. GrindTec 2018 was also the most successful to date since its premiere twenty years earlier. With 19,100 top-class trade visitors from around 50 countries, the leading international trade fair for grinding technology achieved its third best attendance.To date, around 40,000 international industry experts are part of the network  and the trend continues to rise. GrindTec 2020 was well on its way to continuing this success story for the industry.

It is only one more year until the industry will meet at the world’s leading trade fair for grinding technology, GrindTec, in Augsburg. But things will start getting exciting as early as Easter, because from April 6, GrindTec will regularly keep the industry regularly updated with the latest advantages of the next event.

Well-known partners but also new supporters have already positioned themselves in order to make their ideas, suggestions, special products and services for the industry available to the visitors via these channels.

GrindTec project manager Joachim Kalsdorf comments: “When it became clear that there would be no GrindTec in 2020 due to the pandemic, we started to bundle all our forces and ideas in order to be able to offer our visitors real added value in the waiting time until GrindTec 2022. We are pleased to be able to start our program already after Easter.“

In recent years, GrindTec has established itself as the most successful meeting for international grinding technology. In 2022, it will finally once again offer the urgently needed platform for the presentation of innovations, for the initiation of new contacts and for the cultivation of existing business connections. In the past, GrindTec has always been regarded as a source of impetus for the industry economy and all the more hopes are now resting on the signal effect expected from this first major meeting of grinding technology.

Significant advantages for exhibitors until June 30
GrindTec organiser AFAG is offering a whole range of benefits to companies that register by June 30, 2020 at the latest. In addition to an early bird rate for stand rental, these exhibitors are guaranteed a refund of the stand rental paid in the event that the trade fair is cancelled due to the pandemic. Regular conditions will then apply from July 1. This new two-tier pricing model will also be continued in the future.

Free customer invitations for the first time
For many companies, the invitation of customers devours a not inconsiderable part of the trade fair budget. With GrindTec 2022, this aspect will also change: Exhibitors can invite as many of their customers as they wish and they will receive the guest tickets free of charge.

The registration phase has begun

The first registrations have already been received by the project management, and discussions have been going on for weeks with numerous companies. The clear tenor: participation in GrindTec 2022 is not up for discussion for the large majority of the companies which had registered for 2020. The planning of the halls will begin in June 2021, the current participation documents will be offered on the homepage of Grindtec 2022:

GrindTec 2020 update

February 27th, 2019 9:25 am | by Admin

The world’s leading trade fair in grinding technology is increasingly in the focus of international companies
The 300 registrations for the GrindTec 2020 in just under five months speak for themselves, while the leading platform for grinding technology is becoming more and more international. Whereas at the GrindTec 2000 just 15 percent of the 164 exhibitors came from outside Germany, most recent figures showed 45 percent of the 644 companies. The number of countries represented also rose accordingly from 8 to 30. The increasingly intensive development of the markets in Asia has contributed significantly to the internationalisation of the GrindTec at a whole series of trade fairs.

GrindTec: a greater presence at international trade fairs
GrindTec has developed into a known factor in the world of grinding technology. Whether at the Cimes in Beijing, the IMTS in Chicago or the IMTEX in Bangalore, in fact wherever the AFAG and the FDPW are at work, the GrindTec is known and appreciated as the leading trade fair in its sector. The organiser and sponsor will be presenting GrindTec from 18–20 March 2019 in the lecture forum at the Grinding Technology in Tokyo and it will have a booth of its own for the first time.

Even more service for exhibitors and visitors
Although a whole range of new hotels in Augsburg will be available in the coming years, there will always be exhibitors and visitors who prefer staying in nearby Munich. They will now be pleased about a further shuttle bus line. From 17–21 March an additional bus will run between the centre of Munich (bus station) and the exhibition centre in Augsburg. The Munich airport has already been long connected with Augsburg via a shuttle bus line. Timetables are available at
