MSV Brno or simply referred to as MSV is an international exhibition specialized within 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 highly important 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 the 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 within 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 general public.
