ENGINEERINGNET.EU -- Deutsche Messe is further expanding its foreign trade fair business with a new show in Milan.
The new show, TPA Italia, is a trade fair for power transmission & control (fluid power), hydraulics and pneumatics - a specialty area in which Deutsche Messe has many years of international experience.
It will be the first time the German-based trade fair operator has ever taken one of its flagship Hanover Fair showcases to another EU country.
The new fair will be staged near Milan, in May 2014 as part of a joint venture between Deutsche Messe and Fiera Milano.
It will be held every two years so as to alternate with MDA (Motion, Drive & Automation), Deutsche Messe's trade show for power transmission and control held in the odd-numbered years as part of Hanover Fair in Germany.
TPA Italia will replace the Fluidtrans Compomac and Mechanical Power Transmission shows, which were held for the last time on 8 to 11 May 2012 in Milan.
Deutsche Messe has been steadily expanding its foreign trade fair portfolio, which currently spans 6 continents. In 2012, the lineup features nearly 50 events being staged around the globe.
