SIAF Guangzhou and Asiamold successfully open on 11 August with over 650 exhibitors
Aug 11, 2020

Postponed from their original date in February due to the COVID-19 outbreak, SPS – Industrial Automation Fair Guangzhou (SIAF) and the concurrent Asiamold fair successfully open today at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou. Powered by the world-renowned SPS Smart Production Solutions in Nuremburg, SIAF Guangzhou is the premier hub for intelligent industrial automation solutions in South China, while Asiamold covers the latest mould-making, 3D printing, metalworking, foundry, die-casting, laser and bearing technologies. Over 650 exhibitors will utilise 40,000 sqm across five halls to showcase their latest manufacturing solutions and innovations.

Mr Hubert Duh, Chairman of Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, commented: “The manufacturing industry is one of the most important industries in China and we are very excited to open SIAF Guangzhou and Asiamold, our first two fairs in Guangzhou since January 2020 and be able to support the industry by providing a key trading platform for manufacturing businesses in the South China region. Catering to the increasing demand for protective gear and health equipment, Asiamold’s new Mould and 3D Printing Epidemic Prevention Technology Display Zone located in Hall 1.2 will present the manufacturing processes of various products. With this zone and other smart manufacturing solutions on display, we hope to help industries resume normal operations as soon as possible.”

Mr Martin Roschkowski, President of Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, co-organisers of the fairs added: “Various industries continue to be challenged by the COVID-19 virus outbreak which temporarily suspended numerous global businesses and production lines. The ongoing pandemic has had a huge economic impact globally, but also presents new opportunities for the manufacturing industry, introducing an urgency for manufacturers to upgrade and incorporate automated technologies, particularly in China as being the world’s factory. In light of the current healthcare emergency, through the collective efforts of SIAF Guangzhou and Asiamold, the group’s first trade fairs to open in Guangzhou, China this year under the smart manufacturing cluster, we hope to help the industry recover and support the growing manufacturing industries across Asia.”

Extra health care and hygiene precautions will be in place
