Coronavirus Event Update

The 2023 edition of Blechexpo will be held between 7.11.2023 and 10.11.2023. The trade fair will take place at Messe Stuttgart as a face-to-face event. The venue will feature the latest COVID-19 prevention measures to ensure the safety of attendees. This will include a 3G entry policy and social distancing regulations. As per the entry policy, attendees need to show recovery, immunisation or negative test certificates. They must also maintain a social distance of 1.5 metres. Due to the travel restrictions that have been recently implemented by Germany, attendees need to show 3G documents when entering the country. 


Blechexpo remains the definitive source for trends in metal processing, as it is at the heart of the metalworking industry in Germany and on the territory of Europe for that matter. The international exhibition extends its portfolio to the entire value chain – sheet metal components, automation and handling technology, metal assemblies, production, finishing and surface treatment. As a platform for procurement, it is unrivalled and offers exhibitors unrestricted access to major industrial markets outside Germany.

Audience and statistics

Blechexpo, which was known as Südblech at the year of its foundation, prides itself as a source of innovation, but also research and education for metal working. One of the biggest incentives for the latter is the coveted Blechexpo Award and one of the biggest highlights is the forum program, which has invited the biggest specialists in the field today to give talks on the next generation of technology. There’s also cross-market potential for exhibitors with the co-held Schweisstec.
