Messe Düsseldorf North America will participate in the National Safety Council Congress & Expo 2010 in order to promote its international trade fair for the occupational safety industry: A+A 2011, International Trade Fair for Safety, Security and Health at Work, to be held from October 18 – 21, 2011 in Düsseldorf, Germany, according to a recent press release.

At the NSC Congress & Expo booth 5252, A+A 2011 visitor information as well as exhibitor applications for the North American Pavilion (organized by Messe Dusseldorf North America and co-sponsored by NSC) and individual exhibit space will be available. Brochures with information about hotel and travel arrangements to the show will also be on display.

As the leading international trade fair for the occupational safety and health industry, A+A will showcase the entire range of products and services for personal and occupational safety — from protective items for individual body parts to complex security systems, from occupational medical care to ergonomic workplace design. A congress will complement the exhibits. Over 1,500 exhibitors and 55,000 visitors from around the world are expected to take part in the event.

The last staging of A+A in 2009 demonstrated that companies invest in the health and safety of their employees even in difficult economic times: 55,800 visitors came to gather information on the latest trends for personal and occupational safety and health displayed by 1,541 exhibitors from 62 countries. This result is a new record in the history of the event, the organizers say. Almost every fourth visitor came from outside of Germany, with increased participation particularly from non-European nations such as South American countries. Of the exhibitors, 65% came from countries other than Germany, with China, Italy, France, Great Britain, India, Pakistan, the U.S., the Netherlands and Taiwan as the leading foreign exhibitor nations.
