Premiere of CeMAT RUSSIAMonday, June 22, 2009
HANNOVER, GERMANY — Deutsche Messe is pleased to announce CeMAT RUSSIA, the latest venture in its ongoing international expansion program. The new fair premieres from 28 September to 1 October 2010 at the All-Russian Exhibition Center, one of Moscow's top three exhibition venues. Deutsche Messe's cooperation partner for the fair is ITE Group Plc, a UK-based trade fair company with offices in 11 countries. Every year, ITE stages 50 exhibitions and conferences in Russia alone.
CeMAT RUSSIA spans all aspects of intralogistics, including materials handling and storage technology, packaging and order picking systems, materials flow solutions, warehousing systems and workshop equipment, packaging systems, transport systems, software, logistics services and outsourcing.
The Russian market for intralogistics products has enjoyed strong growth in recent years. The country's total warehousing and logistics center floor space grew by two million square meters (21.5 million sq. ft.) in 2008 alone. This has been a boon to Germany's intralogistics providers, who last year grew their export sales to Russia by 52.4 percent for a total volume of € 745 million. The Russian government is pouring billions of euros into new roads, railway lines and port facilities. Meanwhile, the Russian airport sector is in the midst of a consolidation phase, with the big airports steadily increasing their passenger and freight volumes while smaller, regional airports are being forced to close. Russia's airports may not yet be of the same quality as their western European counterparts, but they are being modernized and upgraded all the time. This is especially true of the big airports in Moscow and St Petersburg, whose terminals and logistics facilities will soon rival those of their major European competitors.
Of course, some infrastructure projects have been put on ice as Russia grapples with the global economic crisis. But even if 2009 and 2010 don't bring a repeat of the record growth rates of the recent past, the World Bank is still predicting that the Russian economy will grow by three percent. That's a solid basis for continued stable growth - and hence strong demand for logistics products and systems.
CeMAT Russia will run concurrently with and at the same venue as MDA RUSSIA, Surface RUSSIA and Industrial Automation RUSSIA under the parent brand "Industrial Trade Fair Moscow". This clustering arrangement will allow the four industrial tradeshows to feed into each other, generating cross-industry synergies and business. International exhibitors will benefit from this latest international rollout of Deutsche Messe's winning trade fair formula.
