The industrial automation industry's lead event

Motek performs a particularly important role within the heavy and light industry because it forms the vanguard for breakthroughs and cutting-edge advancements in automation at the stage of assembly and production. The international exhibition has been a source for innovation since its foundation in 1982, when it operated on a much smaller scope and in a different location altogether. Now, the program at Motek is one to keep a close eye on for features such as the Microsys Technology Park and Mechatronics Theme Park. As an exhibitor, you’re there to make an impression on the market and size up the competition. You also discover what’s happening in every related field since Motek covers every product group - dismantling machines, assembly machines, grippers, robotic systems, industrial robots, integrated systems and positioning systems.

Motek 2024

Motek's 2024 edition will be hosted as a face-to-face exhibition between 08.10.2024 and 11.10.2024. The exposition will be held at Messe Stuttgart in Germany. The hosting venue will not feature strict Covid-19 prevention measures. This is due to Germany removing its pandemic-related restrictions.

Stuttgart, Germany houses Motek every single year and the exhibition is usually put together early October. Motek is co-located with another related exhibition – Bondexpo. Both are the brainchild of P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG and run for a total of four days at Messe Stuttgart. Admission is given only to trade visitors and working hours are expected to start at 09:00 am in the morning and end at 17:00 pm in the afternoon, but be sure to double check once the new edition is announced. As to how to commute to Messe Stuttgart when you don’t have a rented car – that’s easy. The city offers you two equally reliable options – the bus system and the suburban train network. Both have good connections to the exhibition grounds and run frequently. If you’re staying close to Stuttgart Airport, you can take advantage of the shuttle bus service.

“The internationally leading Motek trade fair at the heart of the mid-sized business sector is the right place at the right time for the Arena of Integration to present networked Industry 4.0 in a practical, hands-on manner,” - Senator E.h. Wolfgang Wolf, Managing Director of the Board of the State Association of Industry in Baden-Württemberg (LVI);

“The Arena of Integration is the best example of the fact German technology companies are above all global leaders when they connect and team up with each other. What we’re experiencing at the Arena isn’t merely a unique and innovative approach to trade fair design,” - Thomas Bonschab, managing director of TiNC International GmbH and board member of the German Society for International Technology Transfer (DGIT);

“The Arena is a genuine bull’s-eye! In a highly convincing manner, it demonstrates that smart networking of promising solution concepts involving players with complementary expertise is an ideal path to successful innovation,” - Thomas Kathöfer, Managing Director of the Consortium of Industrial Research Associations (AiF)

Motek might be a specialized exhibition, but it still boasts some pretty impressive numbers that will convince you to exhibit next year. First, you’ll be exhibiting next to some other close to 1000 exhibitors, which make up the entire supply chain. Last edition registered attendance of 35,000 industry insiders – a perfect pool of potential customers. As a rule, the audience at Motek left the exhibition well satisfied with what they found and you’ll be, too, when you hear that the majority of visitors have decision-making powers in their companies. Visitors are often board members and managing directors, head of departments and authorized signatories. The variety of professional backgrounds is also more than satisfactory, since you’ll be networking with professionals from the machinery and equipment manufacturing industry, the electrical and electronics industries, solar production, the automotive sector and medical engineering field.
