CIMT and CCMT – successful synergy in rotation


CIMT_2021_Opening CeremonyThe CIMT – China International Machine Tool Show – has been held since 1989 every two years in Beijing and established its rank as the leading machine tool technology show in Asia already at the end of the nineties in the last century. Like the CCMT – China CNC-Machine Tool Show – the sister event in Shanghai in even years, CIMT is organized by CMTBA – the China Machine Tool and Tool Builders' Association.

Since 2009 CIMT has been staged at the New China International Expo Centre – NCIEC – in Beijing, occupying the whole venue including temporary halls build-up on the parking lots adjacent to the regular halls. IMAG, a subsidiary of Messe München, has organized already since 2007 German participations at CIMT supported by VDW – the German Machine Tools Industry Association. German machine tool technologies are worldwide known for their high-end quality and suppliers are famous for their tailor-made solutions for their customers. Accordingly since 1991 CIMT has been supported by the German government. For a long time, the German Group and German Pavilion at CIMT are forming up one of the biggest foreign participations there.
