IranConMin 2018 proves a success

Munich/Tehran, 29 November 2018 – Despite a difficult environment, the Iranian trade fair for construction and mining IranConMin can look back on another successful event. The 14th staging of the trade fair for construction machinery and mining, which took place from 2-5 November 2018 at the Tehran Permanent Fairground, drew in about 15.000 visitors and around 200 exhibitors from eight countries. The companies taking part were particularly impressed with the high quality of visitors to the event.

The construction and mining sector has traditionally played an important role in Iran. IranConMin has been the biggest and most important trade fair in the industry for years, which brings together international exhibitors with the most important decision makers and experts in Iran. In 2018 too, high-ranking government representatives attended the trade fair, including Dr. Reza Rahmani, Iranian Minister for Industry, Mine and Trade, who had only taken office a few days previously.

Germany, China and Poland each had their own pavilion, where companies from the respective country were present at a joint stand. The Iran Mining Conference took place at the same time as the trade fair, where the aim was to encourage an exchange of knowledge between mining experts. This year, the focus was on finding the right balance between profitability and environmental and safety issues in mining.

Exhibitors hold on to Iranian market: Despite the difficult situation at present, the majority of the international exhibitors rated this year's IranConMin as good to very good, and praised the high quality of visitor contacts in particular.

Munich, 28 June 2018 – For the 14th time, the Iranian trade fair IranConMin has invited the movers and shakers of the international construction and mining industries to Tehran.
From 2-5 November 2018 exhibitors will meet at the Tehran Permanent Fairground, where 15,000 square meters of floor space will be dedicated to showcasing their product portfolios for all items related to mining, construction machinery and construction systems. Germany and China will each be represented with their own pavilion, while Poland, Finland and Italy also plan joint appearances. In 2017, around 20,500 professional visitors attended the largest and most international construction trade fair in the region, as did around 300 exhibitors from 15 different countries. Iran continues to offer interesting growth opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises in particular.

The IranConMin has been the largest construction trade fair in Iran for a number of years, which brings international exhibitors together with the most important decision-makers in Iran and experts from the construction and mining sectors. The trade fair is accompanied by a seminar program which also encourages exchange away from the trade fair stands. There, international experts will discuss the challenges and opportunities faced by the construction and mining sector and showcase current product developments and trends. Since the event began in 1994 it has been hosted by IMAG GmbH, a subsidiary of Messe München, which organizes the IranConMin together with its partners Palar Samaneh Co. and IranMineHouse. IMAG’s involvement in Iran goes back a long way, ever since it organized the first German industrial exhibition in Tehran in 1960.


IranConMin – the positive trend continues

Munich, December 5, 2017 – There was once again considerable interest in IranConMin in 2017: some 20,500 visitors attended this year's trade fair for mining, construction machinery and construction systems, which took place from November 4 to 7 in Tehran. Nearly 300 exhibitors from 15 countries showcased their product portfolios on a surface area of 16,000 square meters. As a result, the 13th edition of the region's biggest mining and construction fair was able to maintain the previous year's upward momentum.

The importance of IranConMin to the Iranian market was demonstrated at the opening of the fair, with top-level government representatives in attendance such as Iran's Minister of Industry, Mining and Trade, Mohammad Shariatmadari. There was particular interest in the mining sector, reflected in the fact that the mining conference was held at the same time: here, top-level experts spent two days discussing the opportunities and challenges facing the sector, the main focus here being on environmental issues. In Iran, the efficient and environment-friendly extraction of raw materials such as iron ore, copper and zinc is becoming increasingly important in order to reduce dependency on mineral oil and increase quality and security in work and life in general.

Iran: The time for waiting is over

After the easing of sanctions on January 16, 2016, Iran is becoming the preferred trading partner in almost every industry. The prospect of lucrative deals that Tehran can make after the unfreezing of funds coupled with an almost decade-long investment backlog puts Iran, with its population of 80 million inhabitants, in worldwide focus as a trading partner. This is also confirmed by the international exhibition company IMAG from Munich as an organizer or partner of six trade fairs in Tehran.
