Outstanding exhibitor response for steinexpo 2023

Published 20/12, 2022 at 09:56

Almost 200 exhibitors have now booked their participation for steinexpo 2023. Around 70% of all the available space has now been allocated to exhibitors who are said to be looking forward to demonstrating their offering at the show which will be held from 23 to 26 August 2023.

Trade fair organiser Dr. Friedhelm Rese states: “We are incredibly pleased about the unabated popularity of and support for steinexpo 2023. Of course, we had hoped that our trade fair would remain a permanent item on the calendars of many exhibitors and interested parties, especially after the difficult years all sides had to weather. But even we were positively surprised by the ‘trade fair hunger’ that has manifested itself. It was already apparent at the long standing return exhibitors’ meeting in April that many were eager to finally be able to present themselves and their companies on site in the quarry again.” Industry leading companies including Kiesel, Komatsu, Liebherr, Volvo and Zeppelin on the construction machinery side and Finlay, Gipo, Keestrack, Sandvik, Sbm and Wirtgen from the processing sector have already confirmed their participation.

The show will be located at Europe’s largest basalt quarry which will provide even more scope and room for manoeuvre at the demo area A. This area had already been used to demonstrate large construction machinery at the most recent events. This time there will be the additional possibility of creating a high speed track and/or mogul track for dumpers. In addition, the stationary stand areas are compactly placed in this area.  The area for accessories will again be located in demo area B. and compared to 2017, it will now be slightly narrower. The space towards the rear of the upper demo area C is also slightly narrower.

The entrance area will be located on the approximately 15,000 m² new demo area D (former backfill). Arriving visitors can also expect another highlight in this area called ‘Quarry Vision’ of steinexpo 2023 which will form a representative of the visions within the industry. An area of approximately 2,000 m² in size will provide exhibitors with the opportunity to present their future innovations, which may not necessarily be ready for market yet in a way that is visible and tangible. Highly intelligent machines, vehicles and services will be on display.  In general, steinexpo 2023 will also look at ways to help smaller exhibitors present in a way that will appeal to the public. The area for indoor exhibitors will also have a dual focus with the previous large pavilion being divided into two parts featuring an exhibition pavilion focusing on a specific theme that will be open to visitors at each of two locations on two levels.

steinexpo is backed by MIRO (Association of German Mineral Raw Materials), The European Aggregates Association (UEPG), the Construction Machinery and Building Material Plant Association of the Association of German Machinery and Plant Manufacturing (VDMA) and the Association of the Construction Industry, Environmental Technology and Mechanical Engineering (VDBUM). With the support of the German Demolition Association in 2021, the demolition technology segment is now represented. As of July 2022, the Industrial Minerals Association Europe (IMA) is now also counted as a supporter of the show which will further strengthen and expand the international orientation of steinexpo. Together, the associations of the IMA umbrella organisation represent more than 500 companies in 28 countries with more than 23% of the trade visitors coming from abroad to the last show.
