New trade fair for lubricants comes to Essen

Messe Essen is adding another international trade fair to its portfolio: From 6 to 8 September 2022, the new Lubricant Expo of the British organiser Event Partners will be held in the city in the Ruhr region. Around 200 exhibitors and 4,000 visitors are expected at the trade fair for lubricants. Lubricant Expo is aimed at trade visitors from all industries in which lubricants are used and, in addition to finished materials and additives, also presents process equipment and machinery, among other things. In an accompanying conference, participants will discuss how manufacturers and users can achieve their sustainability goals.

"We are pleased to be able to announce the next new addition to our trade fair calendar within a short time after Altenpflege, Cable Car World and CTCO. As an international and specialised trade fair, Lubricant Expo fits perfectly into our portfolio", explains Oliver P. Kuhrt, Managing Director of Messe Essen. On the part of the organiser, there is great anticipation: "We are delighted with the response and the support of the industry for Lubricant Expo. We have found the ideal location in Essen, our exhibitors already confirm this. A state-of-the-art site with an ideal size and a location in the heart of Europe – it doesn't get any better than this", emphasises Event Director Paul Hooker.

Trade fair for road construction and underground engineering will take place in January 2022

Another international organiser has extended its contract in Essen: InfraTech, the trade fair for road construction and underground engineering, will take place from 11 to 13 January 2022. Most recently, the organiser Rotterdam Ahoy welcomed 234 exhibitors and 7,989 visitors to Messe Essen. InfraTech focuses on underground engineering, road construction and hydraulic engineering, supply and disposal, public space design and mobility as well as energy and environment. The trade fair is accompanied by a programme of lectures on the challenges facing the infrastructure sector, such as digitalisation and heavy rainfall management.

The start will be made by the construction fair Baumesse from 7 to 9 January, before the Essen Motor Show from 2 to 12 December will bring the Essen trade fair year to an action-packed close as usual.
