Experience machine technology. Discover innovations. Expand your network.

The Platformers' Days - Leading trade fair for mobile lifting and high-access technology - takes you high above the ground. For over 20 years, this industry event has brought together the platform, crane and forklift sectors, and in September 2023 it will welcome a highly qualified trade audience from all over Germany and neighbouring countries to the Karlsruhe trade fair for the second time.

Intensive product consultation in real operation, concentrated knowledge transfer among industry colleagues and the unique networking character during the day as well as at an atmospheric evening event are the hallmarks of the trade fair!

At the location premiere 2021, around 2,000 visitors gathered information from more than 100 exhibitors from 10 countries during two concentrated days of the fair. With an optimised site concept, ensuring shorter walking distances via linked exhibition areas and thus more compactness, the Platformers' Days will again be a valuable decision-making platform for investments in 2023. The mix of up-close machine experience with the opportunity for direct comparison and practically prepared trend topics is a great way to keep your finger on the pulse of the industry.


Platformers' Days 2023 from 8-9 September

The success story of this traditional industry event will be continued and the industry will meet for the second time at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre on 8 and 9 September 2023.

Thanks to the expanded range of products and services, the Platformers' Days will cover the entire value chain of the industry: In addition to working platforms, cranes and lifting and industrial trucks, the focus in 2023 will once again be on complementary products such as battery technology, software, transport for equipment and machinery and services.

Platformers' Days 2021: Review

"Finally experiencing trade fairs live again" was the unanimous credo of exhibitors, visitors and trade fair management.

The premiere of the Platformers' Days also heralded the restart of Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre's own trade fair business after a three-year break due to Corona. Satisfied faces and the joy of seeing each other again characterised the mood. The participants gathered information from over 100 exhibitors from ten countries, who presented their new products, machines and equipment from the mobile lifting and access technology sector at the first edition of the Platformers' Days at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre.

Who was there?

The exhibition space doubled compared to the previous fair and was already occupied four months before the start of the fair. A quarter of the regular exhibitors even more than doubled their stand areas and were thus able to present a wider product range than in previous years. The trade fair management was pleased about a fifth of new exhibitors and numerous product premieres. For the outstanding quality of the exhibitors, 99 percent of the respondents gave top marks.

"It was the right decision to visit the Platformers' Days 2021 in Karlsruhe: High information content, wide range of innovations and a convincing overall concept! Simply the perfect new location" reports Dieter Beyer, Owner of Beyer Mietservice.

This business event kept what it promised! For trade visitors, it was a concentrated trade fair for mobile lifting and height-access technology in an absolutely professional setting. Once again, our thanks go to Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, the organisers, the numerous exhibitors and their staff. The effort was worth it! For us, it was two intense days, which we used in a very concentrated manner. Also the networking with our branch colleagues did not fall short.

Platformers’ Days has become a regular date in our trade fair calendar. This is where decision-makers from manufacturers and sales organisations come to meet their most important customers, above all those who lease powered access equipment. We are looking forward to the new location in Karlsruhe, and are pleased that the event will retain its family feeling while welcoming new visitors.
