Experience machine technology. Discover innovations. Expand your network.

Reaching new heights at the Platformers' Days - the trade fair for mobile lifting and high-access technology. The industry hub has brought together the Who-is-who of the aerial work platform, crane, and forklift sectors for over 20 years and, in September 2023, is attracting a tech-savvy audience from Germany and neighboring countries to the exhibition location in Karlsruhe for the second time.

Intensive product consultations in real-world applications, a wealth of knowledge exchange among industry peers, and the unique networking opportunities during the day and at atmospheric evening events distinguish this trade fair!

In this year, you can look forward to approximately 100 exhibitors who will be presenting themselves on an outdoor area of around 20,000 square meters as well as an indoor area of approximately 12,500 square meters. With an adapted site concept that ensures shorter walking distances through interconnected exhibition areas, thus guaranteeing more compactness, the Platformers' Days will also be a valuable decision-making platform for investments in 2023. The combination of a hands-on machine experience with direct comparison opportunities and practically presented trend topics offers the opportunity to stay at the industry's forefront. On-site, the displayed machines, equipment, and vehicles can be directly compared, allowing you to determine the model that best suits your own company's needs.

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.
