Latest News for GrindTec

The 2023 edition of GrindTec will be hosted at the Leipziger Messe in Germany as a face-to-face exhibition. The hosting dates for the event are set between 07.03.2023 and 10.03.2023. Strict Covid-19 safety measures will not be present at the venue. This is due to the improving pandemic situation, which has resulted in the removal of the domestic restrictions as well as the travel limitations.


GrindTec has been at the heart of grinding and processing technology since 1998. The international trade fair is a reliable driving force in the international market for grinding technology and a constant source of innovations and trends. Trade visitors come to experience the full technological line up under one roof–tool machining systems, machine periphery and technology, grinding technology and machines, training, planning and management, and R&D. Although the industry sector at large is in a downward trajectory in terms of growth, GrindTec remains a stable constant that drives business relations.


Editions of GrindTec follow a biennial schedule and run for four days in March. Leipziger Messe serves as the official organiser and host venue. Messe Augsburg formerly occupied the position of host location. Only professionals are admitted to the event. Doors open from 09:00 am until 18:00 pm, but these hours are only average and are subject to change depending on the program. Both the current venue and the previous location are easily accessible by car. If you are relying on public transport, there are various bus and train routes, which allow you to reach the sites in no time.

Audience & Statistics

GrindTec extends a reach across Europe and beyond. There’s over 670 exhibitors and 19,000 trade visitors from all over the world. A cursory glance reveals representation from France, Austria, Germany, Great Britain, Finland, Sweden, China, the USA, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and Brazil. It’s this international nature of the trade fair that guarantees excellent business opportunities to grow brand recognition in new markets and break into them more effectively. It’s another good thing that 27% of visitors are singularly responsible for making purchasing decisions in their companies, then followed by 38% that make decisions in a collective. Visitors make up the entire corporate ladder. Entrepreneurs, co-owners, freelancers, board members, works managers, plant managers and branch managers all accounted for in the audience. This is in no small part achieved through the sponsorship of FDPW Fachverband Deutscher Präzisions-Werkzeugschleifer e.V.
