MSV Update

Between 10.10.2023 and 13.10.2023, MSV 2023 will take place as a face-to-face exhibition. The in-person event will occur in Brno, Czech Republic, at the Brno Exhibition Centre. The venue will not implement strict COVID-19 prevention measures. This is because the Czech Republic has removed its pandemic-related restrictions for the time being.


MSV Brno or simply referred to as MSV is an international exhibition specialized in industrial machinery and mechanical, electrical and precision engineering. It has been going on since 1959 and its 60-year history has managed to position itself centrally for the entire sector to the point it’s called the number-one exhibition of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe. MSV Brno unites all the local markets and creates economic bridges with the rest of the European continent. Another significant thing to highlight is that the exhibition fully integrates a variety of products, so cross-sales are more than possible. The product profile extends to ecological technology, electronics, bonding of metals, ceramic engineering, materials for mechanical engineering, rubber technology, surface finishing, heavy-current electrical engineering, hydraulics, chemical industry and cooling technology. Exhibitors value MSV Brno as it’s valuable as a procurement platform and a source for of-the-moment advancements and industry news.


MSV Brno, as a major international engineering fair, occurs on an annual basis in the city of Brno, Czech Republic, and editions usually fall at the start of October. The event runs for a total of five days and shares the stage at the Brno Exhibition Centre with several other related trade shows. The list includes Automtizace, Envitech, WELDING, FOND-EX, PLASTEX, PROFINTECH and IMT. BVV Trade Fairs Brno serves as the official organiser of the exhibition and doors are open for both professionals and the public. Opening hours are from 09:00 am up to 18:00 pm, while the last day concludes at 16:00 pm. Brno Exhibition Centre is centrally located in Brno and there are various options to get to the exhibition grounds – there’s the tram (line 1) and buses (lines 44 and 84). They run frequently throughout the day, so you have an easy commute ahead.
