Planning to attend CWIEME Americas in 2019? Not sure if you can afford the time away from the office, the travel costs, or gain approval from senior management? 

  • 2-day event tailored for design engineers and purchasing managers of the electric motor, generator and transformer OEMs. 
  • Dedicated networking functions on the Show Floor 
  • CWIEME Central theatre covering technical challenges for the OEMs, offering solutions to break those bottlenecks. 
  • Increased focus on e-mobility, and how the OEMs can prepare for the demands of the emerging technology.

Top 5 Reasons To Attend


A trip to CWIEME Americas can save you weeks of research and supplier meetings. Previous visitors have described the show as the “Google of the coil winding and electrical manufacturing world”, a real-life search engine that puts them directly in touch with all the suppliers they are looking for. 

Others tell us that the internet simply cannot provide the sourcing options that CWIEME can. Visiting the show provides countless more contacts and ideas than weeks of desk-based research. 

As well as seeing your existing contacts, the addition of a New Exhibitor Zone in 2019 means you’ll find 100+ companies exhibiting for the first time, all in one convenient hall.


For many, CWIEME Americas  has become the preferred location for their supplier and client meetings. Scheduled long in advance of the show and taking place on neutral ground, these meetings can be used to discuss all business matters. Often customers will find themselves talking to than their regular contacts, sometimes more senior company representatives and also members of departments. 

The new CWIEME Matchmaking tool makes organising meetings pre-show even easier, connecting you instantly with the right people for your business needs and allowing you to make plans in real time.

“You meet a lot of people here. I also see a lot of people from my own organisation, which is a good opportunity to catch up. Yes, it certainly opens doors."


Where else can you attend high-quality seminar sessions delivered by industry experts, each one packed with a wealth of educational content, customised to match your needs and fill your knowledge gaps - all for FREE? 

The cost for commercially-run conferences with comparable content could run into thousands of euros. What’s more, a number of our visitors have discovered new automated processes that have enabled them to speed up their production lines and either increase output or reduce costs per unit.


Conversations with other visitors and exhibitors can lead to surprise discoveries and profitable future cooperation. For example, vendors who plan to restructure or who are in financial difficulties, opening opportunities for you, competitors whose companies are about to diversify their product range, expand into new sales territories or who have lost valuable customers. Such valuable information is sure to be well received when you report back to the office.

“I think the exhibition is a better way to find new technology as everything is here on display."


When it comes to important purchasing decisions that will impact your business both financially and strategically, there is no substitute for live product demonstrations and face-to-face meetings with whole team including service & R&D engineers; who will tend to give you a more open and informative view of the opportunities. 

No matter how well written or illustrated, no company brochure or website can offer the same experience as an exhibition. Only the brave would risk making such decisions without testing or sampling the product for themselves. Having a personal connection with your suppliers leads to better pricing and significantly better service. You’re top of their list

We trust the these key points have convinced you that a visit to CWIEME Americas is an essential date in any coil winding and electrical manufacturing professional’s calendar and look forward to seeing you in May.
