CECE gives coveted patronage to a limited number of world-leading sector exhibitions. With this role, CECE contributes to achieving successful trade fairs and promote business and valuable networks that are created around these occasions.
As of 2015, CECE refined and launched a new International Exhibition Partnership Programme to strengthen some existing relations and create the framework to forge new ones.
Construction Equipment trade exhibitions, indeed, play an important role in fostering and creating business opportunities for manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and customers. Promoting visibility and cooperating with the major international or regional exhibitions is important for CECE and the over 1200 companies it represents.
According to the new programme, CECE Exhibition Partners can obtain Bronze, Silver and Gold Partner packages, thus profiting from a number of commercially attractive services, useful promotion activities and CECE market intelligence resources.
CECE has Gold Partnership agreements with Messe München, AEM and Intermat.
The Gold Partnership with Messe München replaced the previous arrangement between CECE and bauma, which is taking place every three years – next one in 2019. This agreement also covers exhibitions CTT Moscow and bauma China.
Starting in 2017, CECE has a partnership agreement with the US Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) – organisers of CONEXPO-CON/AGG, which takes place every three year – next one in 2020.
