ALUMINIUM World Trade Fair
continues on growth course in 2014
The ALUMINIUM World Fair is preparing for its 10th edition, to be held in Düsseldorf from 7 to 9 October. Seven months before the world's largest industry meeting place is due to open, almost 700 international exhibitors have registered for participation, and more than 80 percent of the exhibition space has already been booked. Trade fair organiser Reed Exhibitions is optimistic and expects to continue the success of previous years with ALUMINIUM 2014.
It just keeps growing and growing. When it moved from the Ruhr to the Rhine two years ago, the trade fair experienced quite a boost. And the signs point to further growth yet again for ALUMINIUM 2014, even if this will be slightly more moderate than at its Düsseldorf debut. Reed Exhibitions currently expects a five percent increase in exhibition space, as well as higher exhibitor and visitor numbers. More than 950 exhibitors are expected for the 10th edition of ALUMINIUM - two years ago, that number was 907 companies from 51 countries.
Already, Halls 9 to 12 of the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre are almost fully booked. As a result, the reserve space originally set aside in the four halls, which are organised along theme lines, has already been occupied. Therefore, a better gross-to-net ratio is the aim in allocating space in Hall 13, which will have a higher stand density and house both the "Surface" and the "Metalworking and Processing" segments under a single roof.
ALUMINIUM 2014 Conference
As the institutional patron of the trade fair, the GDA - the German Confederation of the Aluminium Industry will once again organise the ALUMINIUM 2014 Conference which accompanies the trade fair. Industry experts will give an overview of the future prospects of aluminium in a wide range of application markets from 7 to 9 October in the CCD Ost. The programme features a total of five sessions, on a range of subjects including, among, others Automotive and Markets. The call for papers started at the end of February. The conference language is English.
COMPOSITES EUROPE 2014
COMPOSITES EUROPE will again be held in Düsseldorf at the same dates as ALUMINIUM. At the European Trade Fair for Composite Materials, more than 400 exhibitors will present trends in the field of reinforced plastics. With a total of 1,300 exhibitors, the two events transform the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre into one of the world's largest lightweight construction forums. For trade fair visitors, passing from one fair to the other will be simplified: The ALUMINIUM admission ticket is valid for both fairs.
