Düsseldorf, May 2017 — From October 17 to 20, 2017, everything will revolve around Safety, Security and Health at Work in Düsseldorf. Trade visitors from all over the world will meet for the A+A International Trade Fair with Congress at the exhibition centre. We already know for sure today that A+A 2017 will present the world’s latest trends and products in the fields of safety at the workplace, health promotion at work and security management in companies. Around 1,900 exhibitors will take part in the leading international trade fair, and companies from all continents have registered.
Those coming to A+A in Düsseldorf in October will experience an industry in growth. The market for personal protective equipment (PPE) is considered especially dynamic: it currently boasts a volume of some EUR 18 billion worldwide. 38% of this (EUR 5.8 billion) are accounted for by E.U. markets, EUR 1.8 billion by Germany alone. Experts expect the market to continue growing.
At A+A 2017, international specialist retailers for personal protective equipment will find a complete overview of innovations — and more new impulses for their business than at any other event. Here, the international PPE Specialist Conference entitled “New Momentum for PPE Sales in a Digital World” this year also plays a pivotal role. On October 18, the Conference will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Congress Center Süd (CCD. Süd) at the Düsseldorf exhibition centre. Speakers from Amazon Business, Lyreco, Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions Inc., Uvex Safety Group and Zamro, to name a few companies, and from the Employers’ Liability Insurance for the Construction Sector will discuss with specialist retailers from throughout the world the challenges posed by the speedy growth of e-commerce, in particular. New regulations governing PPE and cooperation possibilities between manufacturers and dealers also feature on the agenda.
The lectures of the international specialist trade conference will be in English. Tickets cost EUR 110 online and EUR 135 onsite in Düsseldorf. Tickets include participation in all lectures of the specialist conference, a snack lunch and admission to A+A 2017.
