The two exhibitions will sit within the Easyfairs DACH portfolio.

We will utilise the evident synergies between our present shows and FMB in order to create more value for the industrial communities we serve. As an international and fast-growing company, we have ambitious plans to further develop and expand our portfolio in Germany and Switzerland.”
