The intercontinental tool grinding and machining event
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.
The 2025 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 11.03.2025 and 14.03.2025. 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.

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.
After a four-year hiatus, the 2022 edition of GrindTec marked the successful restart of the trade show. The face-to-face event was held in Messe Augsburg from 15.03.2022 to 18.03.2022. The exhibition centre had the latest and strictest coronavirus security measures in place. The safety plan included precautions such as mandatory face masks and the most recent variant of the entry policy. 7,100 attendees from 44 countries took part in the event. This included 300 exhibitors from 22 countries. 72 percent of the attending played a decisive or co-decisive role in creating investment agreements.
GrindTec Leipzig 2023, Intec 2023 and Z 2023 took place simultaneously. The events were held in Leipziger Messe between 07.03.2023 and 10.03.2023. The event space for the live trade fairs spanned 50 000 m2 and featured the wares of 821 exhibitors from 29 countries. A total of 19,300 visitors from 49 nations overviewed the presented products, with more than 50% of the group being decision-makers. Of the visitors, 85% stated that their attendance was beneficial. Additionally, 96% would recommend the events to other industry members, and 93% will attend the upcoming GrindTec, Intec and Z.
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.
