“The AEE is the only platform that provides the necessary technical depth for car body construction along the process chain – and this trade fair concept is a success. is the message of NürnbergMesse and Vincentz Netzwork, responsible for the Automotive Engineering Expo, which took place at the end of May in Nuremberg. The figures of the two organizers confirm the upward trend. 20% more exhibitors (2017: 97) and trade visitors (2017: 1,202). A development that can be seen.
The event is still young. It has taken place three times so far, the trade fair at which automotive suppliers and manufacturers can exchange information on products, developments and trends in the field of “body construction”. KOHLHAGE Fastenerswas there for the first time this year. “The automotive industry is very interesting for us. Because we have the know-how and the products to play our part in this demanding market environment,” says Marc Schreiber, Managing Director of KOHLHAGE Fasteners. “There are not so many opportunities in this industry to meet all relevant people simultaneously in one place, no matter whether they are existing customers or project developers for tomorrow’s customers. At the AEE we had almost every OEM operating in Europe at our stand during the two days of the fair. It was worth it. In addition to good conversations, we also took concrete inquiries with us. What more could you ask for when you visit a trade fair as an exhibitor?” That is why the conclusion Schreiber drew after this year’s trade fair appearance is clear: KOHLHAGE Fastener will again be exhibiting at the Automotive Engineering Expo in 2019.
