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

There is just one year to go until the next edition of the trade fair pairing RecyclingAKTIV (demonstration trade fair for waste removal and recycling) and TiefbauLIVE (demonstration trade fair for road construction and civil engineering). Following the successful premiere at the new location, construction and recycling experts will be returning to Karlsruhe between 5 and 7 September 2019. In the well-lit trade fair halls and on 75,000-plus square metres of open-air exhibition area, more than 200 exhibitors will be showcasing their latest machines and equipment in all areas associated with recycling valuable materials and the entire range of civil engineering machines, particularly those used in road construction and canalisation.

Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre offers an ideal infrastructure on its exhibition grounds, but also for visitors and exhibitors travelling to the RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE demonstration trade fairs.
Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre offers an ideal infrastructure on its exhibition grounds, but also for visitors and exhibitors travelling to the RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE demonstration trade fairs.

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.”

Karlsruhe offers ideal infrastructure for travelling to the event

By relocating to Karlsruhe, the trade fair also increased its appeal among visitors from different parts of Germany. Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion is an economically strong region with a high investment rate and a dense transport network. Jürgen Blattmann, local sales director at Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH, stresses the importance of infrastructural accessibility for a positive trade fair experience: “I was surprised at how many specialists from other parts of Germany were visiting TiefbauLIVE 2017. Karlsruhe is easy to reach by car, train and even by air – we even had customers who took advantage of the direct flights to Baden Airpark to visit the trade fair for a day. Even though my focus is on sales in Baden-Württemberg, the trade fair is still of national importance for Zeppelin.”

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.”
