interlift continues its growth course: 600 exhibitors aimed for in 2017

Augsburg – interlift’s growth is unabated: in 2017 the world’s leading trade fair is heading for a new exhibitor record. Interlift’s project management expects around 600 participating lift companies in Augsburg in October. This would mean an increase of at least 10 per cent in comparison to 2015. 430 exhibitors are currently registered; considerably more than 120 firms will be there from joint presentations from Italy, China, the German federal state of Saxony and also from Korea for the first time. In addition to this there are a great number of smaller participating companies which will be included in the coming weeks. Lift companies from more than 40 countries will present their innovations in Augsburg; the area occupied will increase by approx. 2,000m2 to around 44,000 m². The quotient of first-time or returning former exhibitors is increased by 5%.


More innovations than ever before: interlift 2017 presents tomorrow’s world of lifts


Lift companies from all over the world prefer to show their innovations in Augsburg. Here at the branch’s leading trade fair the concentration of international top decision-makers among the visitors is the greatest by far. And more innovations than ever before are expected in 2017. For the world of lifts is changing. In addition to new, worldwide valid ISO norms, here it is primarily digitalization which is causing an increasingly rapid change in technology. Digital documentation, remote monitoring, industry 4.0, building information or maintenance as required are just some of the fields with which the industry has to deal intensively at present.







The interlift 2017 is therefore a must-attend event for all who have anything to do with lifts, for many innovations and trends which will determine the world of lifts in the future will be presented here for the first time.


VFA Forum interlift´17

The international platform for the presentation and discussion of central themes of the international lift branch is an established interlift information hot-spot: in 2015 as many as every tenth trade fair visitor obtained information here on innovations, occurrences on the international lift markets as well as current developments in guidelines. They also utilized the opportunity of discussion with the speakers. The VFA forum will likewise be providing a platform for exciting news and discussion at the interlift 2017. The VFA has received numerous offers of talks by well-known experts on the above-mentioned standard subjects as well as on this year’s main topics of “Megacities – living environments of the future,” “The lift as a style element in architecture,” “Smart Elevators 4.0 – digital incorporation of lifts in the building,” “Industrial health and safety” and “Qualification as the key to the promotion of young talent”. The forum programme will be set up as from the middle of May and then sent to interested parties as quickly as possible because the trade fair planning of many exhibitors and visitors depends on the programme.

interlift 2017:  Alterations for exhibitors and visitors

For exhibitors and visitors there are a number of alterations within the framework of the largest interlift to date. For example, the WWK Arena parking spaces in close proximity to the exhibition centre are available to visitors. A free-of-charge bus shuttle connects the stadium and the exhibition centre so that visitors can reach the entrance comfortably in just 7 minutes.


The interlift exhibitors’ evening (Wednesday, 18.10.2017) is also no longer taking place in the exhibition centre as in former years. The organizer AFAG has chosen a very special setting here – the exclusive business area of the WWK Arena. The motto of the evening is “A Night at the Arena”. The shuttle service is of course also available for the guests of this gala evening.


The shuttle bus connections between Munich airport and the Augsburg exhibition centre as well as between the main station and the Augsburg exhibition centre remain unchanged however. This and other current information can be found on the interlift 2017 homepage. It is in any case recommendable to prepare a visit the trade fair via the Internet. The (mobile) website www.interlift.de can be accessed from any terminal.
