AMB has grown constantly since 2006. The exhibitor and visitor figures reflect this. The relocation to the new trade fair grounds directly at Stuttgart Airport and the market-oriented trade fair concept have helped this development considerably. 800 companies exhibited at AMB in 2006, two years later this figure stood at 1,306. The number of visitors also jumped from 50,000 to over 85,000. In 2010 the trade fair was able to increase its exhibitor figures to 1,346, and also the number of visitors rose further with over 86,000 visitors. At the same time, the number of visitors and exhibitors coming from abroad also increased. At AMB in 2014 the number of exhibitors evened out at the high level, the number of visitors grew to over 90,000. The last AMB 2016 recorded a number og 1.469 exhibitors and again around 90.000 visitors travelled to Stuttgart.
