MachinesEventsSouth-East European INDUSTRIAL Мarket - issue 3/2011

15- 18 March 2012, Metropolitan Expo, Athens, Greece

“T Expo” has started the preparation for the organization of the 6th international exhibition “Metec – Construction Machinery”. This edition is held under a sense of optimism which is triggered by several new facts from the market.

The interest shown from Arabs and Europeans in investments, the start or restart of more than 100 projects which concern infrastructure and transport networks, the simplification of procedures in NSRF (program for development) in order to increase the rates of absorption as well as the acceleration of other public and private projects of which approval was pending on environmental permitting service, are some of the facts that foreshadow the market’s exit from the deep crisis as well as the exhibition’s success.

The new “meeting of the giants” will take place from Thursday March 15 till Sunday March 18 2012 at the “Metropolitan Expo”. It is the country’s most contemporary exhibition center located next to the international airport of Athens, the “Eleftherios Venizelos” and has proved to be the ideal place for the exhibition’s organization.

A sense of particular interest is given by the fact that the 6th edition is simultaneously organized with the international exhibition “DOMICATEC – Building & Renovating” on a relevant subject concerning building materials and will take place on another hall of the exhibition center.
In “METEC – Construction machinery” participations include companies that construct or represent:

The exhibition attracts executives from technical firms, contractors, engineers, building site surveyors, researchers, quarry developers, mine developers, transport companies, warehouses, etc. Furthermore, executives from public technical organizations, Local Authorities, owners and operators of work machinery, traders, etc. will be present.
