Special theme area "Rough Terrain"

Before you entered the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre for the Platformers' Days 2021, you were already greeted by the first-ever and sophisticated special theme area Rough Terrain - located directly in front of the main entrance - and given a first glimpse of the concentrated machine technology that the trade fair had in store for you.

On the 2,100 m² Rough Terrain playground with changing subsoils, slopes and other challenges and obstacles, machines and equipment from selected exhibitors demonstrated their strength in real-life work on rough terrain. Just like on a real construction site!

Participants of the special theme area in 2021:

Special show "Elektro-Park"

Trend topics such as electrification and sustainability are becoming increasingly important in businesses, but can be challenging in everyday working life. Visitors were able to see for themselves the benefits of an emission-free working environment at the special show Elektro-Park in the Atrium. A selected portfolio of quiet, economical and powerful machine technologies presented here provided information on their advantageous use - especially in view of increasingly strict noise and exhaust requirements.

Visitors were inspired by the solutions shown here for their operations and benefited from the concentrated market overview of this special show, which had machines and equipment ready - which score points without compromising on performance, operating time or durability!

Participants of the special show in 2021:

Z LAB Lecture Café

In the Z LAB Lecture Café (Booth H130), prominently located in the entrance area of the Platformers' Days hall exhibition, exciting practical presentations on digital rental processes awaited visitors on both days of the trade fair. There was the opportunity to exchange ideas with other professionals and experts on specific topics!

Product placement areas

The impressive product placements could already be marveled at in the entrance area of the Platformers' Days, giving a foretaste of what to expect during the rest of your visit to the trade fair. Visitors could also look forward to further exhibits from selected exhibitors in the hall area.

Participants in 2021:

Networking evening for exhibitors and their customers

As a great way to round off the trade fair Friday, the participants of Platformers' Days could meet at the subsequent networking event - open air in the cosy atmosphere of the Atrium - to discuss the latest planned projects or industry trends. Authentic, local food and drinks, as well as musical accompaniment with a hand for the right music at every stage of the evening, completed it perfectly in the late summer evening atmosphere.

Highlights were:

  • Live band followed by a DJ with the right music for every phase of the evening
  • Schnapps tasting from Walter Distillery
  • "GINtastic" welcome gift
  • Photo session in Black Forest scenery
