The RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE demonstration focused trade fairs showcased the latest crushers and shredders, as well as other specialised equipment for material handling, transport and logistics.
The 238 companies which exhibited at the two shows demonstrated construction machinery and additional tools for civil engineering, earthwork and road construction, both displayed and live in action on 80,000m2 open air exhibition space. “Our four special theme areas alone will feature a total of 10h of live machinery demonstrations every day,” said Britta Wirtz, CEO of Messe Karlsruhe at the opening of the demonstration trade fairs. “On top of this, visitors will be able to watch 55 exhibitors who are showcasing their products at their stands.” As well as the open air exhibition area, some exhibitors also presented their solutions in the adjacent exhibition halls.
The twin trade fair was held at its location in Karlsruhe for the second time. Britta Wirtz opened RecyclingAKTIV and TiefbauLIVE together with the First Mayor of Karlsruhe, Gabriele Luczak-Schwarz, and representatives of the ten industry associations supporting the event. At the official opening, figures from the worlds of politics and business discussed the new substitute building materials legislation in Germany and how it affects the use of recycled building materials in road construction and civil engineering.
