The most significant industrial fair in Central Europe
News from the engineering and electro engineering industry
BRNO FAIR CITY - a new project for both exhibitors and visitors
The International Engineering Fair (IEF) is the most important industrial fair in Central Europe
Every year over 1,600 exhibitors and 80,000 visitors attend the fair, with over 35% of exhibitors and 10% of visitors from abroad.
Its attendees are mostly professionals, with over 70% of them influencing decision-making on investments and one third working in top management.
All the key areas of engineering and electrical engineering industry represented
The main topics of the fair are industrial automation and the presentation of measuring, controlling, automating, and regulating technologies for all the disciplines present at the fair. Electrical engineering, automation, and measuring technologies form its third busiest specialized area, right after machine tools and technologies and engineering materials and components.
Traditionally, the fair is closely observed by the media, with over four hundred accredited journalists. It features a top-quality supporting program, full of expert conferences, seminars, and workshops on current technical, business, and economic topics.
The fair doesn’t only present our city or offer business opportunities; its significance is much greater than that. It holds a lot of professional conferences, seminars, and workshops on current topics from the worlds of business and technologies. And it’s here, in our city dedicated to creativity, innovations, and studies, where each and every contribution to education is especially useful. I am sure that once the fair ends, people will leave Brno enriched with a lot of new facts and knowledge.
