R+T has been characterised by enormous growth ever since it moved to the new Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre. The trade fair will be held for the next time from 27 February to 3 March 2018. "The cooperation with the exhibitors and the entire R+T trade fair team was incredibly enjoyable and always very pleasant," said Melanie Brenner, the outgoing Senior Project Leader, and added: "I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the exhibitors and partners for their cooperation and the mutual trust over the last few years." Her tasks will be performed in future by Philipp Götz, Senior Project Coordinator, who will then organise the leading world trade fair for roller shutters, doors/gates and sun protection systems together with the team headed by Sebastian Schmid, Department Director. Philip Götz first worked in the area of market research in 2011 and then moved one year later to the project team for the "IT & Business“ trade fair. Philipp Götz: "I am very much looking forward to future cooperation with the R+T team. I will be glad to put forward my ideas in order to successfully shape our leading world trade fair and offer our visitors and exhibitors the best possible service."
