BIEMH is about to hold its 31st edition in Bilbao, Spain and programming will run for five full days in the middle of June. The international trade fair is traditionally held in mid- to late May, but the pandemic has made some changes. BIEMH is meant for a professional audience only and the work hours are set for 09:30 in the morning until 18:00 in the afternoon. Be sure to check the schedule for any changes. Bilbao Exhibition Centre and AFM organise the exhibition at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre every two years in close collaboration with AIMHE. The Bilbao Exhibition Centre has a terrific location, some 13 km from Bilbao airport and 2 km from the ferry. If you’re staying in Barakaldo, you can catch the city bus KBus. In Bilbao, there’s Line 3136 Bizkaibus and metro line 2 from the “Ansio” station, which takes you directly to the exhibition centre.

  • “We are encouraged by the reactivation of the sector in Europe, which means that the fair will be more technological and innovative. We are distributors of Spanish, Italian and Turkish companies of cutting and forming metalworking machinery and we are very interested in exploring the possibilities offered by additive manufacturing,” - Rosario Soto, President of DISMA;
  • “We came to offer multi-process continuous 5-axis technology under the supervision of Industry 4.0,” - Mikel Almandoz, Commercial Manager of IBARMIA;
  • “We are going to invest in new machines and we are interested in buying equipment, so our visit to BIEMH is very interesting. It is the first time we come to the fair, and our first impression – mine and that of other American delegates – is very positive, both from the aspect of the organisation and the exhibition. The equipment’s offers has a very high quality,” - Blaine Young, Tooling Coordinator at SPX Process Equipment (United States)

As we’ve already touched upon, BIEMH is a leading business platform in Europe and this is very clearly seen in the numbers. The last physical edition had over 1750 international exhibitors on the show floor and together they attracted an audience that reached 42,400 trade visitors. Together they generated 136,000 business contacts, which is a strong reason why you should attend. It’s a proven way to generate new business in a meaningful way.
