314 trade fairs outside Germany planned in 2018
German exhibition organisers are planning 314 foreign trade fairs in 38 countries next year. The number of trade fairs will grow especially in Southern, Eastern and Central Asia and in Latin America, whereas a small decrease is to be registered in Europe and North America. The brochure “German Trade Fair Quality Abroad 2018”, published by the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (AUMA), provides an overview of these events organised by members of AUMA.
The main region continues to be Southern, Eastern and Central Asia, where 162 events will be taking place, followed by European non-EU countries (55), Latin America (26), the Middle East (23), North America (21), the EU (18), Africa (6) and Australia/Oceania (3). A total of 15 members of AUMA organise their own trade fairs abroad.
These trade fairs cover almost the entire spectrum of industry – from automation to construction technology, energy, food industry and vehicles to agriculture and forestry, machinery and textile industry.
The brochure entitled “German Trade Fair Quality Abroad“ lists the trade fairs by industry and venue. Information on main products and services, year launched, intervals and contact details is provided for every fair. The brochure targets export-oriented companies both in Germany and abroad.
