Mesago Messe Frankfurt to expand its portfolio with RosMould

Nov 9, 2017

Mesago Messe Frankfurt increases its portfolio of technology shows with RosMould – the international trade fair for mold-making, prototyping, and 3D technologies in Moscow. The agreement for purchase was signed by Moldexpo LLC, the owner of the show, and by Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, part of the Messe Frankfurt Group.

“Russia remains one of the countries with high potential for economic growth as well as exhibition business. On the market, we can see a rise in demand for machine tools for such key sectors as power generation, transport, automotive, and agriculture. Since 2006, RosMould has united specialists from a wide range of industries, providing innovative solutions in the design and engineering of products and equipment for prototyping as well as the manufacturing of molds, die molds, and stamps. Messe Frankfurt is one of the key players on the exhibition market worldwide, with strong expertise in many business fields. Its experience will contribute greatly to the further development of RosMould,” notes Dmitry Sorokorensky, President of Moldexpo LLC.

Petra Haarburger, President of Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH, adds: “The purchase of RosMould is an important step in expanding our corporate portfolio. We believe firmly in the positive prospects for forward-looking manufacturing technologies on the Russian market. Our experience with leading exhibitions like formnext powered by tct or SPS IPC Drives and the good understanding of the Russian market by our group company, Messe Frankfurt RUS, are key factors for the future successful development of RosMould.”

As an exhibition for the mold-making market of tomorrow, RosMould is an important industry platform for industrial innovations in Russia. By bringing industrial designers and product developers together with manufacturers, vendors, and end users, it promotes new products and developments. Additive manufacturing and 3D printing have become an integral part of RosMould and also open up new potential for mold-making. “As the organizer of formnext, the world’s leading exhibition on additive manufacturing and intelligent industrial production, we are the perfect partner to help establish this modern production technology more strongly in Russia and Eastern Europe as well,” says Sascha F. Wenzler, Vice President for formnext at Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH.

Messe Frankfurt RUS is the Moscow-based subsidiary of the international exhibition concern. The portfolio includes nine international brands of exhibitions and forums in Moscow, Kazan, and Astana. Events such as Modern Bakery Moscow, Interlight Moscow powered by Light+Building, and Heimtextil Russia are among the leading professional trade fairs in Russia and the CIS countries.

The Russian subsidiary operates two national Chinese trade fairs, initiated by the government of the People’s Republic of China – the China Commodity Fair and China Machinery Fair.

“This investment allows us to offer an outstanding platform to the Russian and international high-technology market. With our expertise and global sales network, we are able to transfer innovations from the knowledge holders to the local market. Messe Frankfurt RUS and Mesago see a lot of potential in such trade fairs,” says Eugen Alles, Managing Director at Messe Frankfurt RUS.

The next edition of RosMould will be held on 15-17 May 2018 in the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Center.
