The boost the industry needs!

NORTEC conveys the future and future viability

Never before in the 30-year history of NORTEC has the production industry been under comparable pressure to adapt. NORTEC responded with an innovative trade show concept tailored to the needs of the market players who feel this pressure the most: small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). At the Manufacturing trade fair and the new Campus for SMEs, small and medium-sized enterprises get clear answers to the questions that concern them - from optimizing and making production more flexible to getting started with Industry 4.0.

New exhibition concept

An innovative concept of fair trade and campus turns a visit to NORTEC 2022 into an educational journey that leaves no question unanswered. NORTEC is where decision - makers, buyers and users meet experts who speak the language of medium – sized businesses. The trade fair for production focuses on the latest technologies, systems and services for production- and manufacturing.

We look forward to seeing you there!
