At the Platformers' Days, around 100 national and international exhibitors with around 200 brands provide information on all important topics relating to the use of mobile lifting and height access technology on a total of 32,500 m² of exhibition space.

In addition to the technical exchange, the industry participants, including rental companies and users, particularly appreciate the opportunity to see the equipment in operation. The focus is always on the demonstrated technology, which allows direct comparison.

The industry event for hands-on experience and testing will be rounded off by a relaxed networking evening.
