YEKATERINBURG, March 28. /TASS/. More than 620 companies from all over the world will take part the Innoprom-2017 international industrial exhibition to take place in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg in mid-July, an organizer of the event told TASS in an interview Tuesday.
"Early this year, or six months before the event, nearly 50% (of the exhibition’s total display area) was already reserved. We are now pleased to announce that currently only 10% of the display area remain vacant. Considering that we receive requests on a daily basis, we are sure that Innoprom will run at full capacity this year," said Anton Atrashkin, the director of the exhibition’s business program.
"This year, we expect some 620-650 companies, more than half of them foreign ones, including Japan’s Fanuk and Mazak, Germany’s Siemens and Siempelkamp, Sweden’s Volvo, along with Russia’s Rostec, Sinara, Avtovaz and many others," he added.
The exhibition will also feature four national displays of Japan, Germany, Italy and Korea.
"The Japanese side will include more than 100 companies. The country’s delegation has more than 500 members - chiefs of major companies, as well as representatives of small and medium-sized businesses," Atrashkin said.
Innoprom, an international industrial exhibition, has been held in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg annually since 2010. In 2012, the Russian government vested the exhibition with the federal status.
Last year, a total of 638 companies from 17 countries, including the United States, Austria, China, South Africa, Germany, Czech Republic, Japan, Taiwan and Italy, took part in the event. A total of 40 foreign delegations, representing potential buyers for Russian-made vehicles, machinery and equipment, visited the Innoprom-2016, signing 76 deals worth 4.5 billion rubles in total.
In 2017, the exhibition will be held on July 10 through 13.
