Important Information

Unfortunatelly time and time again exhibitors are contacted by dubious companies wanting to include them in so-called Trade Fair and Exhibitors’ Directories, such as FAIR GUIDE, International Fairs Directory or EXPO-GUIDE. In most cases these are publishing companies who have not been authorised by the Trade Fair Organiser and who change for insertions in various directories after giving the impression that their services are free of charge. >> read more


Digitization - The most important future topic of our time - also for industry and trade. But which potentials, possibilities and fields of application already exist today? Get an overview now with the new Touchpoint Digital Workbench at the electrotechnology 2019 trade fair. (in German)



elektrotechnik traditionally addresses not only the German market but also the markets in the Benelux countries. Dutch consulting firms, installation firms and representatives from local government and organisations use the trade fair to inform themselves about the latest technology trends and to exchange information with their German counterparts. The closeness in terms of distance and language results in many cross-border projects that benefit from similar standards. Exhibitors and visitors from the neighbouring countries, Belgium, Luxemburg and The Netherlands, are regulars at this German trade fair. In 2017, for example, 62.5 per cent of the foreign guests at elektrotechnik came from The Netherlands. In 2019, this exchange will be further promoted.
