The move to a new location follows a successful debut.
The wfb tool and mould fair will be held 19-20 June, 2013, in the west-central German city of Siegen, according to organiser Carl Hanser Verlag. The site was selected due to the concentration of tool and mould shops in the area and follows the first instalment this year of the fair, which was held in the southern city of Augsburg (See: Exhibitors tout quality of wfb visitors).
Some 1,500 visitors attended this year's show, the organiser said, noting that around 40 companies have already signed up to exhibit at the fair in 2013.
The director of fair organisation, Petra Ziegler, said wfb mobilises regional resources and focuses on nearby value-creation chains. "This is about local sourcing instead of global sourcing."
