International Hardware Fair 2018: Elsea flies to Cologne
The International Hardware Fair in Cologne enjoyed great success in 2016, when the high number of visitors confirmed the event’s important international role. This year, the event looks set to repeat that success and Elsea is proud to confirm that it will be amongst the companies present in Cologne from Sunday 4th to Wednesday 7th March 2018.
2018 International Hardware Fair: the numbers of this high-profile German exhibition
The International Hardware Fair in Cologne returns two years after the last edition in 2016, which hit truly exceptional numbers. The German city was literally invaded by 2,670 exhibitors from 55 countries (86% from abroad) and 44,000 visitors from 129 countries (63% from abroad).
The excellent results achieved by the exhibition reflect the hard work put in by the organisers, who have been managing the largest hardware event in the world for the last fifty years. For the 2018 edition, this twice-yearly exhibition has set itself the ambitious task of becoming an observatory for the economic performance of the hardware sector and a global showcase for thousands of companies.
To reach this goal, the exhibition space of the International Hardware Fair will be divided into four main areas:
- tools (manual and electric)
- industrial supply (machine tools, abrasive products, welding systems, accessories and equipment, safety at work, ladders and scaffolding, etc.)
- fasteners and fixings, fittings (locks, keys, handles, security systems, alarms, building accessories, etc.)
- home improvement (hardware and DIY: building hardware, small metal parts, paints, etc.)
2018 International Hardware Fair: Elsea will be exhibiting in the Industrial Supply hall
Elsea will be present on all four days of the International Hardware Fair, with a stand located in Hall 04.1, which is dedicated entirely to industrial supply. Visitors will be able to see the company’s wet and dry vacuum cleaners, designed and built for use in joinery workshops, body shops, building sites, food factories and pharmaceutical laboratories, to mention just a few. Elsea’s management team look forward to welcoming visitors to stand E-096 and will be happy to provide any technical information required concerning the vacuum cleaners on display.
