The recent staging of A+A 2011, the leading International Trade Fair with Congress for Safety and Health at Work, in Düsseldorf, Germany started with record exhibitor and exhibit space numbers and after four days also posted top attendee numbers: 60,100 trade visitors took part - more than ever before in the event’s history (2009: 55,800). Every fourth visitor came from countries outside of Germany with a significant increase from South and Central American nations. A total of 1,600 exhibitors from 54 countries showcased the latest technologies and trends for occupational health and safety.
“This result has further confirmed A+A’s global status as “‘Safety’s No. 1”. No other industry event offers such a complete product overview and provides so many impulses for the sector due to the productive exchange between experts,” stated Joachim Schäfer, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf.
