Optimum forecasts for eltefa 201930.01.2018
eltefa has continuously reinforced its leading position as Germany's largest state trade fair for the electrical industry. This is also reflected in the positive development of eltefa 2019. The starting signal for exhibitor acquisition has already been given,
and the allocation of floor space is in full swing. Around one year before the event, many exhibitors have secured their stand areas in Stuttgart. Almost 60 per cent of the exhibition area of 25,000 m² has already been booked.
Optimised hall concept with more exhibition space
The extension of the Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre with the Paul Horn Halle (Hall 10) and the new Entrance West offers eltefa many new possibilities.
With the new Paul Horn Halle (Hall 10) and the Entrance West, industrial technology will have its own entrance and in future will be even more compact than before. After a successful first event, "Switchgear construction in focus" will now go into its second round. The solution park with specialist forum in the Paul Horn Halle (Hall 10) will present current industrial and building applications and provide first-hand expertise.
In 2019, the adjacent Alfred Kärcher Halle (Hall 8) will focus on lighting systems – and only on lighting systems. "The proven architects' congress AID (Architects and Engineers in Dialogue) will take place in the exhibition area in this hall for the first time," says Reiner Schanz, Project Manager for eltefa. "This will result in optimum contact between exhibitors and architects".
Building engineering will present itself in Hall 4 and the Oskar Lapp Halle (Hall 6) with its "regular exhibitors," without any noticeable changes to the usual hall layout.
Optimum prospects for 2019
Thanks to the dynamic development of sustainable energy generation, intelligent energy distribution and the trend towards the smart home, electrical engineering is becoming increasingly important. In 2017, the comprehensive offer of eltefa on a total of 21,000 square metres of floor space brought together almost 23,000 visitors and around 480 exhibitors from Germany and abroad.
Also with regard to visitors, the signs for 2019 are good. Over 76% of visitors at the last event stated that they would attend eltefa again.
9 out of 10 visitors would recommend the trade fair to others.
