After taking cognizance of the prevailing situation of the global pandemic in India, the Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (IMTMA) has rescheduled its flagship event ‘IMTEX FORMING & Tooltech’. IMTEX FORMING 2022 & Tooltech 2022, along with Digital Manufacturing 2022, will be held at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) on June 16-21, 2022. Meanwhile, IMTEX, with a focus on metal cutting, will be held in January 2023.IMTEX 2023 & Tooltech 2023, along with Digital Manufacturing will be held at BIEC from January 19-25, 2023.
Commenting on the decision to constantly reschedule its flagship exhibition, V Anbu, Director General & CEO, IMTMA and BIEC, said, “The decision was not easy for us. However, keeping in view the sentiments of the manufacturing industry stakeholders, we had to take this challenging step. On a brighter note, the decision would enable us to specifically focus on metal forming technologies in June 2022, while the spotlight will be on metal cutting technologies in January 2023. The measure would also enable us to move back to our original calendar of holding metal cutting and metal forming shows in odd and even years respectively.”
Anbu further added, “The time gap will give every stakeholder optimism, energy and new ideas to give IMTEX FORMING (in physical format) a successful restart after a prolonged gap. IMTMA foresees that the flagship exhibition will be a great booster to the growth of the manufacturing industry.”
India’s economy is all set to accelerate further with manufacturing industries resuming operations in full swing. The country is on the path of realising its growth targets. IMTEX FORMING & Tooltech 2022 will be a strong enabler in ushering machine tool and manufacturing growth.
All mandatory protocols to hold a safe exhibition will be strictly adhered to in holding the show in June 2022 and in the future as well.
