The exhibitors from 30 countries and five continents will feature at the 62nd International Fair of Technique and Technical Achievements, held at Belgrade Fair on May 21 – 25. From more than 600 exhibitors, among them manufacturing or design companies, scientific research and educational institutions, trade organizations, start-up projects and innovative individuals, the international participants make even a third. Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Austria… will have their National Exhibitions. It seems the title of the exclusive participant this year belongs to the Ministry of Economy of the United Arab Emirates.

The exhibitors announced more than 100 technical and technological innovations, exclusiveness, innovations or premieres in the wide range of technical and technological sectors – 3D technologies, robot application, CNC machines, laser and recycling electrostatic powder painting (plastification), energy more efficient engines – and compared with the last year, obvious is the increased interest in the additive and 3D technologies, i.e. procedures and devices used for prototype and functional product manufacturing technologies from diverse materials.
Already traditional basis of the Technical Fair is the tool exhibition Integra (tools, machine tools, numerically controlled machines. Processing and measurement centers) and the exhibiting product range within electrical engineering and thermal technics, materials and components for the industry, then welding and measurement equipment. Further follow processing equipment, robots, software and communication lines for industrial revolution of the fourth generation and industrial automation, telecommunications, installations, industrial and home electronics, metallurgy and metal casting, transport and logistics, etc.
Inevitable and in some sections also key part of the Technical Fair is the professional side event program, including trade international and B2B meetings, thematic exhibitions, educational features, demonstrations and presentations, knowledge tests and competitions.
