SIMTOS 2016 to Showcase Latest Trends of the Global Manufacturing Industry

SIMTOS, which keeps breaking records in terms of scale every year, increased by 10.6% compared to year 2014.


SIMTOS 2016 (The 17th Seoul International Manufacturing Technology Show) will take place over five days from April 13 to 17 at the 1st and 2nd exhibition halls in KINTEX (located in Goyang City, Gyeonggi Province). The participants are 1,000 companies from 35 countries, and 6,100 booths are being organized, which is a much bigger number than the 5,513 booths in 2014. Up to 100,000 visitors, comprising 95,000 and 5,000 from Korea and overseas, respectively, are expected.

The scope of metal cutting, mold formed tubes, parts/ materials and motion control tubes is drastically expanded compared to former exhibitions. The exhibition will be held even in the lobby, which is the first time in SIMTOS, and it is expected to have increased displaying equipment items for overall metal processing including metal cutting and mechanical coupling. The portion of ‘economically feasible’, ‘process shortening & optimizing’, and ‘highly efficient’ equipment and relevant products becomes higher, offering solutions for manufacturers who are suffering from business depression and poor profitability.

A greater number of foreign buyers with high purchasing power visiting Korea.

It is expected that a greater number of foreign buyers will visit global exhibition SIMTOS in Korea to check equipment produced by worldwide makers including Asia and the latest market trends. Buyers from over 50 countries around the world including the Middle East, Vietnam, and Indonesia are planning to visit Korea. Also, it seems that 300 directly invited buyers who have high purchasing power will contribute to creating profits for participants.


Invited buyers include Brazilians who have purchasing potential in the Brazilian market, the biggest market in Central and South America, and about 100 buyers from Iran whose economic sanctions were relieved recently, and UAE, the center of the Middle East. A lot of European buyers from Germany, a leading country for alternative energy like wind power generation, as well as from Turkey, and Italy, were also invited.

Eight seminars arranged where bottleneck techniques, practical techniques, and optimization techniques will be introduced.

A total of eight seminars about production, manufacturing, and processing techniques are planned for machines, tools, measurement, robot/automation, CAD/CAM/software/3D printer, welding, and so forth. The objective is sharing information related to manufacturing solutions to solving issues from metal processing techniques, going beyond technical seminars oriented only toward a specific item. Smart factory technical seminars, especially, are planned to advance 4th-generation manufacturing business.

Effort to extend observation time and enhance convenience in observation for exhibition visitors

Untitled-85Photo information for exhibition products is provided so that visitors are well informed in advance with exhibition information for total six special halls in 102,431m2 of total exhibition area, and trackless trolleys and shuttle buses will be operating simultaneously between KINTEX Exhibition Center I and II for visitors’ convenience.

A ‘Performance event in hall 9’ is planned in the 2nd exhibition center, and a free sample event and sign- spinning are planned at the entry of the 2nd exhibition center. There will be events in participants’ booths through picket parades for the company event guide. Also, consideration for audiences’ convenience will be focused as much as possible, such as the lounge arranged at hall 8 in the 2nd exhibition center for consultation on items of interest and for their relaxation. | Blog Magazine of korean-machinery, brands and Goods
