Dear visitors and exhibitors of ceramitec,

ceramitec 2018 is just around the corner: the international key trade show for the ceramics industry will open its gates from April 10 to 13. The ceramitec team and I are looking forward to welcoming you on the exhibition grounds of Messe München.

For four days, some 600 exhibitors from around the globe will present their complete offer of machinery, equipment, plants, processes and raw materials. All sectors will be represented – ranging from classic ceramics to industrial ceramics through to technical ceramics and powder metallurgy. Participants may look forward to a comprehensive conference programme and the newly created “Additive Manufacturing” special area.

By tradition, ceramitec is also home to heavy clay ceramics. Thus, one of the highlights of the event is the Heavy Clay Day on April 11. Under the slogan “Building the Future with Bricks”, experts will discuss new trends in roof tile production, point out the advantages of brick fast firing or report on the status of digitization in the brick industry. In addition, the “Award Zi Best Service Supplier 2018” will be presented for the first time in the course of this promotion day. The award presentation will be followed by a get-together. By means of a readers’ vote, the trade journal Zi Brick and Tile Industry International confers this award on the supplier who offers the best customer service.

Furthermore, the German Ceramic Society DKG will conduct its annual meeting for the first time in parallel with ceramitec this year. Whereas the trade show and the practice-oriented ceramitec forums offer solutions particularly tailored to present-day challenges, the scientific lectures of the DKG point the way to the future.

analytica - the International Trade Fair for Laboratory Technology, Analysis and Biotechnology - will take place on the exhibition grounds concurrently with ceramitec. Particularly the analysis, quality control and laboratory technology segments will be offering exciting connecting points for the ceramics industry.

We look forward to welcoming you at ceramitec 2018 and wish all visitors and exhibitors fruitful talks, new contacts and successful business.

Sincerely yours,

Gerhard Gerritzen
Deputy Managing Director of Messe München GmbH
