TiefbauLIVE 2019 - a look back

From 05. - 07.09.2019, the international recycling and civil engineering industry met as part of the RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE on the grounds of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, which turned for the third time into a mobile recycling yard and an open construction site: powerful wheel loaders and heavy-duty shredding systems showed their performance in full action. Construction pits were dug, road surface compacted, wood and metal shredded and building rubble sifted. Around 1,500 machines and devices were presented on the three days of the fair and a total of 3,000 tons of material were moved and processed.

Around 94 percent of the approximately 8,500 trade visitors were extremely satisfied with the presentation and quality of the exhibitors. The close combination of the two sectors was also convincing:
Around 59 percent of the visitors were interested in both topics of RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE.

Both exhibitors and visitors were extremely satisfied with the event. This will spur us on to make the next trade fair in 2022 even better. We want to further develop this unique combination of topics and live demonstrations.
