Today ALUMINIUM, the world's leading trade fair for the material and its industry, opened its doors. After four years and two cancellations due to pandemic, the industry has longed for this moment. The fair, which also celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has more than met expectations with 720 exhibitors from over 50 countries. With a completely revised concept, it is breaking new ground. This year, ALUMINUM is primarily focused on decarbonization and sustainability. The aluminum industry is undergoing an unprecedented transformation process and will undergo fundamental change in the coming years. The companies here are demonstrating the path they have already taken with their products and innovations.
Rob van Gils, President of Aluminium Germany, emphasized: "We are pleased to finally be back at ALUMINIUM. Especially in the time of the energy crisis, when everything is at stake for many companies, ALUMINIUM offers a platform to stand together and - even if it is not easy at the moment - sends a signal of confidence. Aluminum is and will remain the enabler for the realization of the European Green Deal. We are part of the solution."
Conference moves to the center of the fair
For the first time, the Conference will be held on all three days of the trade show. With this logical step, the trade show is positioning itself even better in terms of organization and content - the Conference is a must for every expert in the industry. The program covers the hot topics of sustainability, mobility, additive manufacturing and building & construction. In Hall 3, decision makers from business, industry and politics as well as from think tanks and NGOs will come together at the Conference and share their views on industry and materials. This enables an even more intensive dialog and helps to sharpen the focus in order to successfully master the tasks ahead.
ALUMINIUM 2022 will take place from September 27-29 at the Düsseldorf exhibition center.
