K 2010: Opening of the K Trade Show
At K 2010 in Düsseldorf, Germany, from today to 3 November, over 3,000 exhibitors will once again be presenting their latest developments for all sectors of the industry. Companies from 57 countries have registered to attend.
The total leased exhibition space comes to 164,100 square meters, about 60 of this being occupied by companies based outside Germany. The number of German exhibitors registered currently totals 1,058, with a net area of 65,740 square meters.
Italy is traditionally the most strongly represented nation among the non-German exhibitors, and more than 400 Italian companies alone have booked a net space of 27,400 square metres to showcase their products. Also strongly represented among the European countries are Austria (8,100 square metres), Switzerland (6,100 square metres), France (5,000 square metres) and the Netherlands (4,200 square metres). 113 companies from the USA will be taking part, occupying some 4,500 square metres of exhibition space – an increase in relation to K 2007. Furthermore, the contingents from China (6,700 square metres), India (4,500 square meters) and Turkey (2,800 square metres) have grown appreciably. With 5,300 square metres, Taiwan is as strongly represented as in 2007. Appearing for the first time are exhibitors from Armenia, Chile, Indonesia, Pakistan and Vietnam.
To enable K 2010 trade visitors to conduct searches and find solutions in advance during the run-up to the fair, the companies are making intensive use of the communication platform offered on the trade fair’s Web portal.
