The 4-yearly welding event is back

After 5 years, your welding event is back: Welding Week. On 14, 15 and 16 May, the metal sector of Belgium and the Netherlands will once again come together in Antwerp Expo.

From now on, you can also find solutions for all your metalworking needs at Metal. At Subcontracting, you will meet industrial suppliers specialised in metal parts and machining.

These 3 trade fairs are organised together and give shape to the umbrella name of: Advanced Manufacturing Belgium.

are eager to show you the latest technologies: from welding equipment and automation, robots/cobots, CNC machines, sheet metal working machines, cutting machines, virtual welding, surface treatment to the best industrial suppliers in metalworking and metal parts.


During the fair, BIL will organise the welding symposium, Belmetal will present the Steel Warriors award. You can become Belgian virtual welding champion at VDAB or weld your own message on VCL’s wall of flame.
