In 2018 CME China Machine Tool Exhibition set a record already with 850 exhibitors. However CME 2019 seems to become even bigger. Up to date 85% of the exhibitors of the last CME re-confirmed their presence. As usual domestic companies and suppliers from neighboring Asian countries show a strong presence. For the first time a country pavilion from India will add spice to the show as CME has gained a reputation as a perfect platform to target the market segment of successful medium-sized private enterprise in China.
