10 reasons to be there.

The advantages of the Platformers’ Days

Here are 10 solid arguments for why you should present your brand and products at the leading event for mobile lifting and powered access equipment.

The PD package makes things easy

The PD package has all the services you need to make your trade fair a success, from full catering during the entire exhibition and evening events to electricity, parking spaces and tickets for guests and exhibitors.

Clearly structured exhibition grounds

The large “Nord” and “Atrium” open-air exhibition areas are directly accessible from the bright hall area, including the event hall at the main entrance to the exhibition grounds. These spaces offer excellent facilities, from high load-bearing capacity surfaces to electricity, water and WiFi provision.

The circular visitor management system starts and ends in the hall area, and features small drinks and catering islands in the outdoor areas to ensure even visitor distribution.

Strong partner network

Platformers’ Days relies on a strong network of industry associations, including the IPAF as a conceptual partner and event partners bbi and BSK. This combined industry expertise ensures that the event will continue to grow and develop successfully.

Professional event team

Our professional event team has plenty of experience in outdoor demonstration trade fairs. They are looking forward to working together with you and can offer the support you need to perfectly present your business.

An event with a proud history

Platformers’ Days is a unique event in the region and can look back at 20 years of success. The move to the new venue at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, with its excellent outdoor exhibition space and outstanding infrastructure, provides the conditions for the event to grow and continue its success, while maintaining the strong focus on networking.

Focus target groups

Platformers’ Days is where the experts of the industry come to meet, including the leading leasers, operators and specialised users of mobile lifting and powered access equipment. With around 3,000 visitors expected over two days, the event offers the chance to cement existing business relations, make new contacts and discuss the latest developments with market players.

Full catering

Enjoy a comprehensive range of catering services, from a solid breakfast to a rich lunch offer and afternoon snacks in the decentralised catering areas in the hall and outdoor area. Take advantage of the opportunity to discuss future projects or market developments with your customers and business partners at any time, simply and conveniently, while enjoying a snack together.

The daytime catering offer is rounded off by a themed evening event, which awaits you and your customers in a special atmosphere and with a certain charm for a cosy end to a long day at the fair in direct connection to the hall exhibition area.

A very special evening event

Our unique evening event lets you enjoy a relaxed, family atmosphere as you meet your customers, make new contacts and raise a glass together to a successful trade fair. Enjoy the region’s beautiful late summer weather with good food and local drinks, and take the opportunity to continue discussions with industry partners.

Held on the evening of the first trade fair day (Friday, 10 September 2021), our networking evening offers true Black Forest charm. Whether you choose to spend the evening indoors or in the sunshine, you will be able to discuss your future projects or industry trends with your team, customers and fellow market players. As the summer comes to a close, enjoy authentic local food and drink at the Platformers’ Days networking evening and toast a successful day’s business. Our DJ will be on hand with the perfect selection of music, and you will even be able to try special schnapps varieties from the region.

On the evening of the last assembly day be-fore the trade fair (9 September 2021), we would like to invite you and your team to our “Welcome to Karlsruhe” kick-off event, where we look forward to discussing the benefits of the new venue with you.

Please note: If the planned evening event of Platformers' Days takes place, Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre will examine the proportionality of the event at short notice on the basis of the current legal basis and will then either adapt the concept to the requirements applicable at the time of the event or possibly cancel it.

Experience technology up close

Sometimes the best way to judge what a machine, system or vehicle can do is to see it live in action. If you think this is the best way to present your products, then Platformers’ Days is the event for you. Take the opportunity to show what your flagship products can do and wow your potential customers with their capabilities.

The special theme areas and special show formats offer additional space for exhibitors at Platformers’ Days to present their systems, machinery and vehicles in practical live demonstrations.

Excellent transport connections & accommodation

Whether you arrive by car, train or plane, the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre’s excellent transport connections make it easy for you and your customers to arrive at the heart of southwest Germany’s economic powerhouse. We will also offer a free shuttle bus service running regularly between the trade fair and selected Platformers’ Days partner hotels during the event (including evening events).
