Event spotlight Gen-next is the future of machine tool industry
Euroblech 2018 will be inviting young students to attend the fair in order to encourage them to work for the growing sheet metal working industry. The show will also be organising a job board for young talent to be recruited across diverse countries.
Mark Zuckerberg, Chief Executive Officer, Facebook launched ‘Facebook’ when he was just 19. Evan Spiegel (28), Co-founder and CEO of Snap Inc. is one of the youngest billionaires in the world.
An ignited young mind can change the world and even create innovations like never before. Their sheer vigour, sense of imagination and endless possibilities to establish their idea makes them stand out from the crowd and accomplish their goals. Such young talent should be nurtured to create pioneering leaders of the future and like many other industries, the machine tool industry has also recognised this.
Attracting the youth towards the machine tool industry becomes a challenge at times as students are not aware of the numerous opportunities in the sector. To resolve this major hurdle, trade shows from this industry usually arrange interesting sessions and exhibitions to attract the young crowd. For instance, this year, the 25th international sheet metal working technology exhibition – Euroblech 2018 which is expected to be held from October 23-26 in Hannover, Germany has chosen ‘Digitalisation’ and ‘Industry 4.0’ as its core topics. The new age topics, in line with global industry happenings, have got young students excited to be a part of the machine tool industry and the trade show.
To further encourage youngsters to attend this event in large numbers, the show will be hosting an exclusive ‘Student Day’ at its venue. On this day i.e. October 26, Euroblech will grant students the opportunity to visit the trade fair free of charge. The youngsters only need to present their valid student identification cards at the entrance. This is only valid for a day, on all the remaining days students will be charged a reduced student fare of €15 per day for the ticket.
Job board for youngsters
This is not all! Another attraction for students is Euroblech’s job board which will also prove to be the ideal platform for youngsters to get job placements. Here exhibiting companies from different countries such as Austria, Belgium, China, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom are expected to advertise their latest job openings. The job board is also available online at www.euroblech.com/2018/english/visitors/job-vacancies/
All in all, Euroblech 2018 looks like the perfect venue for budding students to mark their entry into the sheet metal working and machine tool industry. We wish all the youngsters all the very best for the show.
