An extra hall for DACH+HOLZ International 2020

An extra hall, additional forums and a new Architects’ Lounge with a Future Shop: DACH+HOLZ International will take place in Stuttgart 28th-31st January 2020, featuring a range of innovations.

“We are planning to completely redesign DACH+HOLZ International in Stuttgart and add on another hall,” says project director Robert Schuster. “This means that 2020 will see six halls being used rather than five.”  Schuster goes on to state that there will be more opportunities to interact, a better-quality visitor experience, a range of exhibitions from numerous different companies and optimised visitor guidance: the structure of the new hall and the range of industries will ensure significantly enhanced cross-linking of trades across all the trade show halls. While the fields of frontage, pitched roofs and flat roofs as well as conventional insulation will now be mixed across three halls (4, 6 and 8), Hall 7 will house the full range of metalworking products. The field of timber construction will be found in Hall 10, which will present the full package of materials in the timber construction industry; including timber processing machines, wood-based materials and wood-based insulation boards. “Numerous renowned machine manufacturers in timber construction are already on board. Stuttgart has never seen a range of exhibitions of such breadth and depth,” Schuster enthuses.


New forums, even greater knowledge transfer

Holzbau Deutschland (German Timber Construction Germany), Zentralverband des Deutschen Dachdeckerhandwerks (Central Association of German Roofing Trades) and BG BAU (Professional Association for the Building Industry) will join forces in Hall 9, including a Speakers’ Corner – a new platform for knowledge transfer which will be used by associations to address common topics such as safety at work. The Architects’ Lounge with a Future Shop in Hall 6 is another new feature which is intended to get visitors discussing and interacting with each other. Hall 6 will also be where the general expert forum will present industry-specific lectures on the key topics of young talent, digitisation, timber construction and sustainability.


Digital construction: BIM your life!

More and more construction projects are being optimised using BIM: if you don’t want to miss this digital revolution, find out about the opportunities and offers currently on the market; and DACH+HOLZ International will also be providing helpful guidance. On Thursday 30th January 2020, the forum will focus on the topics of BIM and digitisation. Experts and solutions providers will give tips and best practice examples that can be utilised by every company. An innovation trail is also planned, allowing visitors to the trade show to try out useful applications and tools for the building industry.


“Triple Wood” Roadshow

A further highlight of DACH+HOLZ International will be the European roadshow “Triple Wood”. Sustainable timber constructions from seven Alpine countries – Germany (Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria), Italy, France, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Slovenia – will be exhibited in Hall 10. Various projects, including office and engineering constructions, renovations and commercial buildings, will be presented alongside handicraft businesses which were involved in the projects and will provide information in the forum about how they helped execute such projects.


The biggest platform for roofers, carpenters and plumbers worldwide

Ranging from tools and EDP solutions to machinery and skylights – DACH+HOLZ International is the only trade show in the world that focuses exclusively on the topics of roofing and timber. “With around 600 exhibitors our visitors receive all the valuable knowledge possible about product and process innovations and are able to handle and compare products,” says project director Robert Schuster. “There is no other trade show that offers such a comprehensive range of exhibitions at this magnitude for carpenters, roofers and plumbers. We are also pleased to host foreign delegations such as the IFD International Federation for the Roofing Trade and the TCE Timber Construction Europe, the European roofing association for carpenter and the timber construction industry”. The trade fair’s host city of Stuttgart offers international visitors outstanding infrastructure, and the trade show grounds themselves have superb public transport connections; regardless of whether visitors arrive by car, train, bus or aeroplane. In fact, Stuttgart Airport is just a short walk from the hall.
