FEIMEC 2020 launches its new sales cycle as the ‘largest exhibition in the industry in Latin America’

The third edition of the machinery and industrial equipment trade show FEIMEC will have even more exhibition space than in previous years. Its official launch occurs within a moment of positive expectations for the Brazilian market.

Within the marketplace’s positive expectations for economic growth, the third edition of FEIMEC 2020 – Brazil International Machinery and Equipment Exhibition has been launched.

The exhibition will take place in Sao Paulo on May 5-9, 2020 and will have 62,000 sq m of exhibition space, 700 exhibitors and will receive over 65,000 industry professionals.

According to data from the “Manufacturing Poll” research study from CNI (the Brazilian National Confederation of Industry), the investment intent in the first quarter of 2019 in the manufacturing sector reached its highest level in the past four years, which reinforces the industry’s strong confidence in the return to prosperous times for the country.

The event is the only large-scale, national exhibition in Brazil in 2020 and will showcase the latest technologies and products from diverse segments, such as machinery and equipment, automation, quality control and measurement, tools and devices, welding and surface treatment, machine tools, valves, pumps, compressor, motors, gearboxes, drive systems and other product segments related to the value chain for manufacturing industry, as well as banks, service providers and industry development agencies.

The exhibition will occupy 62,00sqm – 20 per cent more space than in the previous edition – at the Sao Paulo Expo Exhibition & Convention Center, the largest and most modern exhibition center in Latin America.

The trade show expects to receive 65,000 buyers and industry professionals (a 30 per cent increase from 2018) from diverse range of manufacturing industries, such as metallurgy, automotive, auto parts, appliances, electronics, aerospace, packaging, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and hygiene, oil & gas, paper & pulp, mining, among others.

These attendees visit FEIMEC in search of new solutions, new technologies, and new suppliers, and most of them are directly responsible for purchase decisions at their companies or play an important role in the purchasing process (85 per cent).

The innovative project Ideas Park, a space dedicated to presentations, workshops and speaking sessions about topics that have a direct impact on the manufacturing sector today and in the future, will maintain its focus on the technical and professional development of industry professionals, as it has done in past editions.

FEIMEC, recognized as the official exhibition for the machinery and equipment industry, is an initiative of ABIMAQ – Brazilian Machinery Builders’ Association – and Informa Markets, and counts on the support of over 80 national and international industry trade associations.
