Automotive, tourism and comics on the one hand, logistics, lasers and finance on the other – trade fair Stuttgart presents itself as a broad-based location. As the sixth largest exhibition centre in Germany, the area is both the venue for various public fairs and trade fairs. The most well-known trade fairs in the B2C sector include Caravan, Motor and Tourism (CMT) and Retro Classics. In the past, trade fair Stuttgart also hosted Comic Con Germany. The trade fairs include leading international trade fairs such as

  • the Metalworking Exhibition (AMB),
  • Bondexpo (industrial bonding technology),
  •  Invest (finance and investment),
  • LASYS (laser material processing) and
  • the Logimat (distribution, material and information flow).

The mix of public and trade fairs attracts more than one million visitors to trade fair Stuttgart every year. With a total of ten halls, including the International Congress Centre Stuttgart (ICS), the 120,000 square metre site offers ideal conditions for this. The transport connections are good and there are direct connections to the A8 motorway, the B27, the airport and the S-Bahn. More than 8,000 parking spaces are available to visitors arriving by car in the nearby multi-storey car park.

Software solutions, automated storage and conveyor systems or even new safety concepts: Logimat is the leading trade fair for distribution and the flow of materials and information.

The trade fair newspaper LogiMAT daily informs visitors about the wide range of information on offer and is available free of charge every day at the entrances.

Also very important is LASYS, which provides information on new technology in laser-assisted material processing. Since 2008, the three-day trade fair has been held in Stuttgart every two years and has enjoyed growing success. In 2016, LASYS attracted 6,000 trade visitors from the mechanical engineering, automotive, optical, plant and apparatus engineering and metalworking industries. Among other things, the trade fair will show application examples for laser micromachining, laser sources, laser macromachining and beam sources.

In 2018, more than 12,000 visitors took part in the fair with more than 140 different exhibitors. One focus of the two-day event is on technical contributions and an extensive stage program, which is organized in close cooperation with renowned media partners such as ARD and Handelsblatt.
