Holistic trade fair participation

Are you looking for additional visibility at the exhibition grounds of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre to round off your trade fair presentation perfectly?

This can include classic sponsoring, product placement or participation in one of the special theme areas or demonstration building sites. Interest aroused? Then let's get started!

Live demonstration formats

Five live demonstration formats

Key info on the demonstrations

  • 2-3 demonstrations of up to 30 minutes per day
  • Max. 2 exhibits per participant
  • Approx. 4-6 minutes of presentation time per participant (depending on the number of registered exhibits)
  • Provision of necessary infrastructure – individually adapted to the demonstration format (e.g. steel panels, power supply, roll‑ off containers)
  • Free material for demonstration purposes (incl. old wood, cuttings, mixed scrap metal, rubble, excavated earth)
  • Coordination of demonstration times on the respective demonstration formats to avoid topic clashes

Key info on your presentation

  • Short interviews between the presenter and your product specialist alongside the demonstration (focus on the product, rather than the company)
  • Moderation form in advance: coordination of the questions you would like to answer, bearing product focus in mind

Attachments Arena

And action: Show what your attachments can do!

Put yourself at the centre of the action in the Attachments Arena, placed between the recycling and civil engineering exhibition areas. Let your attachments do the talking in three action-packed shows as they perform demolition, recycling or ground preparation work in a spectacular show with daring stunts.

Demonstrate the power and robustness of your bucket separators, demolition hammers, bucket screeners, pulverisers, compactors and drum cutters. You can choose to present these parallel to each other or working together perfectly with other equipment to reflect a construction process.

Your product manager can highlight the major benefits of your attachment during the live demonstration. This is the perfect introduction and invitation to more detailed discussions at your stand after the show.

Special theme areas

Wood recycling sorting system and Sorting / demolition grapples

Special theme area wood & biomass

All about throughput!

Across the roughly 2,500 m² of the special theme area at the outdoor exhibition space, you will find the perfect conditions for demonstrating your solutions for screening, shredding and sorting of materials like old wood, logs and cuttings.

Use this platform to present your equipment for pre-sorting wood, removing residual materials and creating wood recyclate in a realistic working environment. Show how renewable materials can be efficiently processed, and impress the trade visitors with the throughput and other technical capabilities of your mobile processing systems.

>> Focus in 2023: Electrification in recycling technology<<

In 2023, the focus will be on electrically or hybrid-driven, mobile processing systems alongside diesel-powered recycling units.

We will organise the electrical infrastructure together with you so that your machinery can operate quietly, efficiently and effectively.

An energy fee is charged to exhibitors who make use of the electrical infrastructure. Price upon request.

The mobile scrap and recycling yard

Around 2,000 m² of outdoor exhibition space will be turned into a mobile scrap and recycling yard. This will have all the infrastructure you need to demonstrate your tailored solutions for shredding, storing, handling and processing scrap material.

What makes this area so popular among the trade visitors is the realistic demonstration of typical work processes. Take the opportunity to discuss how your products are perfectly suited to these applications with a presenter at the special theme area.

Demonstration building sites

Schaufelbagger und Straßenwalze

Demonstration building site civil engineering and road construction

Innovations in construction logistics and digital construction processes are the topics of the future in modern road, path and conduit construction, along with preservation measures.

The demonstration building site civil engineering and road construction presented by the VDBUM (The German Association of the Building Industry, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering) will showcase machinery performing typical processes here in perfect coordination, just like on a real construction site, several times a day.

Show off your technical solutions and demonstrate the benefits and developments of your machinery, equipment and vehicles in live operation!

Demonstration building site e-mobility in compact construction, gardening and landscaping

Compact, powerful, reliable and safe

Increasingly strict noise and exhaust pollution requirements in tenders for urban construction and demolition work mean that civil engineering, demolition, gardening and landscaping companies are faced with growing challenges. The solution is a low-noise, zeroemissions construction site that is also efficient.

Use the demonstration building site, developed together with the VDBUM (The German Association of the Building Industry, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering) and the Association of Gardening, Landscaping and Sports Ground Construction Baden-Württemberg, to present the benefits of your electrically powered solutions up close! Across a series of topical construction areas, the demonstration building site will showcase systems and machinery for earthmoving, transport, processing, compacting, gardening and landscaping in a zero-emissions construction process.
