A+A 2019 PREVIEW: International Trade Fair with Congress for Safety, Security and Health at Work

About the Fair:

a+aThis fall, the A+A International Trade Fair will be taking place November 5-8th at the Düsseldorf Fairgrounds in Germany. At the 2017 conference, exhibitors flaunted the latest trends in the fields of occupational safety, promotion of health at work and security management. “A+A is continually growing and underlines at all levels its relevance for the sector as the world’s leading trade fair and congress event,” reflected Joachim Schäfer, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf.

Here are the main product categories that will be featured at the show:

  1. Personal protective equipment;
  2. Health at work;
  3. High-risk prevention;
  4. Environmental protection at work;
  5. Prevention of property damage and quality reduction and;
  6. Measurement technology to avoid malfunctions and accidents.

Why You Should Attend:

Some individuals may be thinking, “Why should I attend this trade show? Especially, a show that is so far away. There are plenty of other events in the states. Is it really worth it?” While that may seem like a valid point, those personages should reconsider their opinion and read onward.

The A+A International Trade Fair is the number one International Event for Workwear.

Attendees in 2017 expressed overwhelming interest and enjoyment in high-quality personal protective equipment and protective workwear, which is increasingly worn in the private sphere. “While protective workwear in the past was generally uncomfortable and not particularly fashionable, employees today are often in public wearing these cloths. Thanks to the development of high-tech clothing in the sports and outdoor sectors, people no longer have to do without top design and optimum performance. This was also confirmed by the over 200 corporate fashion exhibitors and the newly designed fashion shows,” commented Birgit Horn, Director of A+A, 2017.

It is the world’s leading trade fair for safety, security and health at work.

Find the latest, most innovative products, topics and technology on the market, like smart skin sensors; measuring of vital parameters; back-friendly exoskeletons; smart fleet management; data glasses; and sensor-controlled fall protection. See these themes and products celebrated at A+A, and visit the companies who help lead the way on these innovations, including 3M, BORNACK, Honeywell, Uvex and the Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance (IFA).

A+A 2019 will offer an extensive lineup of the latest trends and products, while providing vital information for employees and employers on how to work safer, healthier and more proficiently.
