Final decision: Demonstration trade fair postponed to 5 to 7 May 2022

RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE will kick things off: first live demo fair in 2022

"The opening perspectives of politics, which have been lacking up to now and are currently accompanied by many uncertainties, give trade fair organisers and their customers hope, but due to the incidence-based nature, these lack essential foundations of real planning security. Therefore, the decision to postpone the fair until 2022 is very regrettable for us, but unavoidable in close consultation with our advisory board members," states Messe Karlsruhe Managing Director Britta Wirtz.

The fact that trade fairs are still only allowed to take place with certain incidence values as well as the necessary long planning lead time for the outdoor trade fair led to an increased number of cancellations by important exhibitors in the past three months. "Unfortunately, due to the planning uncertainty, numerous key players and brands have meanwhile made the fundamental decision not to participate in any more on-site trade fairs in the current year 2021. This reduces the attractive, broad range of products and services at our demo fair and would - as we believe - be reflected in visitor reticence. A market cross-section that is incomplete in terms of products and visitors does not meet our standards," explains project manager Olivia Hogenmüller.

In the trade fair year 2022, RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE will fully exploit its conceptual strength as a customer-oriented live demonstration trade fair for machine technology as well as the construction and environmental sectors.

"Back to live" - virtual events are only a temporary alternative to live events for us. We want to finally appeal to all senses (see, hear, touch) with our visitors again. The presentation of our equipment and services as well as the personal contact with our customers are the main reason for our participation in RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE. We rely on working together with Messe Karlsruhe to define the necessary, comprehensive and functioning hygiene measures. Of course, we adapt the entire booth concept to the "new normal". We would even reduce our machine selection in order to allow social distancing. Our goal: To finally take off again personally with the required safety for guests and visitors.

Across the three days of RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE, we meet both new and existing customers from across Germany and the surrounding countries. We use the live demonstrations at the demonstration building sites as a platform to present our products to a wide audience. Customers can then come to our stand for further discussions. We have exhibited here for many years, as it is an essential date in the calendar.
