Augsburg – Particularly in newly industrialising countries and developing nations, used machinery is essential for boosting technical development.

Visitor groups from the following countries have already registered with the ReTEC 2017: Egypt, Armenia, China,India, Iraq, Iran, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Turkey and the Ukraine. Enquiries from about a dozen additional international visitor groups have already been received.
The project manager of the ReTEC, Henning Könicke, explains why Augsburg is the perfect venue for the international trade fair: “We, AFAG Messen und Aus stellungen GmbH, have already been organising several international trade shows like the interlift and the GrindTec in Augsburg and the location has always proved to be a success. The atmosphere is personal and friendly and offers good opportunities for networking, apart from the exchange of information between professionals. We have already ensured that all the required framework conditions for ReTEC, such as the availability of hotel allotments and shuttle transfers to international airports, have been fulfilled.”
In November, the ReTEC participated in the UMEX 2016 in Chennai, India. At this trade fair for used machinery in the Asian region, visitors showed great interest in the RETEC 2017 in Augsburg. The ReTEC is supported by the inter-trade organisations FDM (Trade Association for Machine Tools + Tooling – Fachverband des Maschinen- und Werkzeug-Großhandels e. V.) and the EAMTM (European Association of Machine Tool Merchants). The priority areas of the fair are focussed on construction machinery, industrial trucks and agricultural machinery, as well as on metal working machines and machine tools.
