Just one year until RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE
Demonstration trade fairs will be taking place for the second time at Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre in 2019
This year, two important new exhibitors will be making their debut at the biennial trade fair: Austrian shredder specialist Lindner and German manufacturer Pfreundt, the world market leader in mobile and stationary weighing systems. As well as this, Kölsch, Doppstadt and Hammel have confirmed that they will be among the recycling exhibitors at the event and Wacker Neuson, JCB and Lehnhoff among the civil engineering exhibitors. Project manager Claudia Nötzelmann is justifiably satisfied: “The recycling and civil engineering sectors are dynamic markets. We are very pleased that our two trade fairs have firmly established themselves over the years, allowing us to build upon our solid exhibitor and visitor base in the very busy 2019 trade fair year. We are delighted at the confidence and trust being shown towards us.” A small number of open-air exhibition areas are still available.
High visitor loyalty
Trade visitors from both sectors used the 2017 trade fairs as an information and investment platform. These include decision-makers from recycling, waste management, construction and demolition companies and managers from civil engineering, gardening and landscaping firms. Some 85 percent of visitors to the last event intend to return next year. One of these is Thomas Glaser, managing director of RTS Glaser GmbH, a civil engineering and pipeline construction company from neighbouring Bruchsal: “I visited TiefbauLIVE to find out about new developments in the sector. The exhibition grounds are very well structured so I was able to find all the information I needed in just a few hours. My attention was caught by the hydraulic screening bucket by Finnish manufacturer MultaVEX, which was being demonstrated live at the BML Baumaschinen stand. The screen bucket won me over completely and has since been used in my company for screening sand. I will definitely be returning to Karlsruhe in 2019.”
Optimised layout planning
Karlsruhe is not only easy to reach, but the city itself also boasts an ideal infrastructure. Nonetheless, the organisers are planning a number of small changes to make the exhibition grounds even better. As Claudia Nötzelmann explains: “For a start, we will be using the main entrance in the west of the trade fair grounds in future. Here, our visitors will find ideal infrastructural conditions – taxi rank, suburban rail station and parking spaces are all centrally accessible and a permanent visitor entrance is situated there as well.
This time around, we will also be positioning all the hall exhibitors along the main route into the open-air exhibition area. By steering visitors along this new route, we expect to facilitate even more contact between visitors and exhibitors.”
