Visiting BIEMH, International Machine-Tool Exhibition, will not be just attending a trade fair: scheduled to take place from May 28 to June 2, it will be the best chance to get close to Spanish companies, which are specialised in high-performance and customised machinery.
26 editions of experience and an ongoing technology research and development in machine-tools make Spanish manufacturers and it’s most representative fair, BIEMH, a reliable reference in sectors such as railway industry, aerospace, automotive industry and wind energy in several countries.
In fact, 85% of the manufacturers in Spain are based in the Basque Country region, within an 80 km radius of Bilbao Exhibition Centre, where all these types of machinery will be on show at the exhibition. To complete this, visits to the production plants will be organised with the co-operation of AFM, the Advanced Manufacturing Technologies Association of Spain, and SPRI, the Basque Development Agency.
Manufacturers will predominate in BIEMH: over 60% of the exhibitors that have already signed up for it are manufacturers of machines, tools and accessories.

The remaining sectors have also achieved significant bookings: electrical, electronic, hydraulic and pneumatic equipment, metrology, control and CAD/CAM/CAE equipment and other machinery and equipment.
