True to the motto "Deeper technology. Stronger community. Bigger experience!", the RATL team set off for the VDBUM Großseminar on January 30. The first kick-off for the new RATL 2025 site concept was the official starting signal for the civil engineering sector. Interested parties were able to engage in a personal exchange with our team and find out about the conditions and opportunities for new exhibitors. Existing exhibitors who have already confirmed their participation in the upcoming event were able to express their first desired placements and finalize them together with the team. In 2025, the focus of the trade fair will be on the unique live demonstration character with an optimized outdoor area, which will position RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE as a top-class outdoor demonstration trade fair experience.

We are very satisfied with how this year’s trade fair went. We concluded some promising deals at our stand that will probably lead to repeat orders, and had some excellent discussions.

By letting us show every machine live in action, this event brings us closer to our customers. I also like the combination of topics, as material not used in civil engineering can often be recycled. Meeting both customer groups in one place is what makes RATL so special.

No other trade fair in Germany offers so many demonstrations. We were able to showcase our products at the demonstration building site e-mobility and the special theme area wood and biomass. We also held live demonstrations at our stand itself. These demonstration options are absolutely unique.
