Why Your Visit is Worth It 

Part of the consistent success of Aluminium is the fact that aluminium is a widely used material in construction and manufacturing as part of alloys or by itself. With the rise of precision technologies and innovative processes across all industry branches, Aluminium plays an even greater role as a B2B platform and a source for inspiration. As an exhibitor, you enjoy greater visibility and have a seat at the table where the biggest conversations are taking place. Have a look at the statistics to see the value in having an exhibition booth: 

  • 1000+ exhibitors had booths last edition;
  • 27,500 trade visitors from all over the world were present;
  • 80,000 square metres were dedicated as an exhibition space; 

Industry Relevance 

Aluminium takes the stage at Messe Düsseldorf and has twenty years of experience under its belt to ensure that a professional visitor from every level has a productive time at the trade show. The first ever Aluminium took place in 1997 and has since run on a biennial basis. What contributes to its reputation as a champion event for the aluminium industry is its sheer abundance of product categories – connection technology, recycling, auxiliaries, alloy trading, prefabricated buildings, refractory, traffic control systems, semi-finished products, metal working and processing, joining technologies, rolling mills, automation, primary production, casting, furnace technology, heat treatment, recycling and surface treatment. 

Aluminium stays on top of new technologies and megatrends that are changing the industry as a whole. That’s why the trade show remains such a valuable platform for companies to learn what’s on the horizon and what’s now possible. Right now, most conversations revolve around sustainable practices with climate-neutral aluminium, new mobility, digitalisation for efficiency, additive and digital manufacturing and trends to do with construction as we’re at the rise of the so-called mega cities. Current estimations predict that over two thirds of the world’s populations will live in cities and aluminium is going to play a crucial role in getting there. 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

Internationalism is the key word when you think about the trade event. Organisers refer to it in the official press releases as the “United Nations of Aluminium” and there’s a reason for that. You have visitors from 123 nations attend last edition with the prediction for that number to stay the same. That’s easily the entire world under one roof. Of course, the centre is Europe since the trade show takes place in Germany. 

However, the last decade has seen rising interest from buyers based in South Africa, the United States, Brazil, Japan and New Zealand. This number has jumped from 108 countries in the past. A similar process is taking place within the makeup of the exhibitors that rent booths. Speaking of exhibitors, the quality is undeniable. You’ll exhibit side by side with European Aluminium, TRIMET Aluminium SE, TOMRA Sorting Recycling, Impol, OMAR and ALRO SA. 

Additional Value of Attending 

Exhibitor visibility remains the most important task for the trade show. The exhibition space has several special shows organised in pavilions that highlight specific areas of productions. These are the Primary Pavilion, Foundry Pavilion, Surface Pavilion and Magnesium Pavilion. The upcoming 2022 edition introduces two new special shows. 

The Innovation-Plaza Additive Manufacturing & Digital Manufacturing tackles groundbreaking solutions and technologies for manufacturing in the context of the digital age. The Innovation-Plaza Sustainability & Recycling encompasses environmental technology and recycling in order to create a true circular economy. If you’re a start-up and don’t neatly fit anywhere so far, then the Start-up Area is for you. Position yourself most effectively and gain new contacts. 

Finally in terms of discovery, Aluminuim provides the Welcome Desk area. Here you can see a lot of the supporting programme, do some matchmaking and have meetings. At the same time, this is the starting point for Audio Guide Tours that introduce potential buyers to relevant exhibitors.
