Student Day at EuroBLECH 2022

The young generation is increasingly gaining importance in the sheet metal working industry due to the digital transformation and the related changes to occupational profiles. In addition, the last few years have been challenging to get a foot in the industry due to insufficient in person events and networking opportunities. Therefore, EuroBLECH offers students the opportunity to visit EuroBLECH free of charge. On Friday, 28th October 2022, students will be able to get free entry to the show when presenting a valid student ID at the entrance.
