On June 2nd, after six days of trade meetings, we closed the 27th BIEMH with a very positive balance. Throughout this edition, we have welcomed over 34,000 visitors from 56 different countries, showing the growth in relevance of foreign professionals and the presence of buyers from "strategic" markets.
Without a doubt, this result has been possible thanks to the effort of the companies that, like yours, have bet for what is considered as a reference Trade Fair. The BIEMH organisation has tried to respond to this trust by creating a sales platform of first order. For this reason, we wish to thank you for your commitment with the Spanish Machine Tool Biennial and to enjoy with you and your team our shared success, which is mostly yours.
Since innovation has been the main axis of the Fair, in addition to the participation levels, the quality of the exhibition, the convergence of interests and the institutional support we have received, the event has been described as a true industrial and economical meeting, a proof of the strength of an avant-garde and business opportunity promoting sector.
We are aware of the difficult times that we are living in, in which having a sable and consolidated forum is more important than ever. And BIEMH is exactly that. Not only because it has been offering, for over 50 years the only international space devoted to machine-tools in our country, but also because it has known how to reinforce its most dynamic profile to adapt to the real needs of the industry by working alongside with the sector.
Please allow me to reiterate our gratitude for your continuous support.
