The Amazingly Successful K

Exhibitors and Messe Düsseldorf Take Stock

As K 2019 closed its doors, Messe Düsseldorf, Germany, estimated that it had been attended by around 225,000 trade visitors – some 7000 fewer than three years ago, said the K’s Director Petra Cullmann when asked. Werner M. Dornscheidt, Chairman of the Board of Management of Messe Düsseldorf, nevertheless hailed the figure as “a fantastic result”, as surveys had shown that the caliber of visitors had improved even further compared to last time around. The number of international visitors is also likely to have hit a new high (2016: 72%), although final figures will not be released until the end of the week.

According to Dornscheidt, international visitors in particular expressed great interest in recycling solutions. He was relieved that there had been no demonstrations by “opponents and revolutionaries” outside the grounds.

Ulrich Reifenhäuser, Chairman of the Exhibitors’ Advisory Board of K 2019, echoed his sentiments: “It was a really fantastic, amazingly successful trade fair” given the “less-than-ideal boundary conditions”, he said at the closing press conference. Handy solutions had been presented that would genuinely make a difference and “many more orders had been received than had been expected”.

The next K will take place in Düsseldorf from 19 to 26 October 2022. (kk)
