Both trade fairs will now be introduced in virtual format in 2020, with the physical event postponed to 23-26 June 2021

After careful consideration and feedbacks from the exhibitors and stakeholders, Informa Markets, the organiser of METALTECH & AUTOMEX, have officially announced the rescheduling of both events.

The two global metalworking and automation physical events, originally scheduled to take place from 10 to 13 November 2020 at Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC) Kuala Lumpur, will resume on 23 to 26 June 2021.

The decision was made in light of the uncertainties currently posed by the global pandemic and the subsequent travel control measures that disrupted most business activities and restrained the participation of international exhibitors and visitors to the physical event. Influential players from the Malaysian manufacturing industry have echoed their support to METALTECH & AUTOMEX 2021, promising a greater comeback to the show floor.

Given the continuing uncertainties for professional events to take place effectively in June matched with our desire to host an excellent event for our community, we have made the difficult but responsible decision to postpone METALTECH & AUTOMEX 2020.
