Site plan: everything on one level

Judging from last year’s feedback, we realised that many exhibitors wanted more compact exhibition areas that were closer together. This led us to rethink how our exhibition space for Platformers’ Days could be used. The result is not only an improved layout, but also a greater variety of ways for you to get involved!

Hall 1 now forms the centre of the exhibition area at Platformers’ Days, offering a large catering and networking area, along with high ceilings that enable the presentation of large machines. With eight gates, the hall is easily accessible from any part of the surrounding outdoor exhibition area. The Demo Area, which debuted in 2021, is now at the centre of the outdoor exhibition area. In 2023 it will be even better, with a professional show concept and expert presenters. The Electro Park, which was also first held last year, will return and take place in Hall 1.
