Karlsruhe, 06. February 2023
The recycling and construction industries will come together from 27 to 29 April 2023 at the RecyclingAKTIV & TiefbauLIVE double trade fair (RATL) on the grounds of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, as the event returns to its standard biennial schedule. The industry trade fair revolves around a unique combination of topics, making it an effective stage for these two key industries in Germany. Both of the event’s focus areas are given equal attention, with shredding and screening technology particularly well represented this year. Visitors will be able to watch these systems live in action and compare them at the special theme area wood & biomass, which returns after its break in 2022. Alongside long-standing exhibitors like Jürgen Kölsch or Komptech, this year’s trade fair will feature some big-name newcomers like Eggersmann, UNTHA and Vermeer. Visitors can look forward to a total of 15 topic-based shows featuring machinery and systems from the world of recycling. These will process a variety of materials from wood and biomass to scrap and metal. The fact that the outdoor exhibition area is fully booked reflects just how popular this event is among exhibitors: “With twelve weeks to go until the start of the trade fair, the 90,000 square metres of outdoor exhibition space is fully booked. The three compact days of the event will be full of tailored solutions for businesses from the construction, demolition and recycling industries”, explains RATL project manager Olivia Hogenmüller.
This will be the fourth time that the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre will host the demonstration trade fair. Home to Germany’s fifth-largest outdoor exhibition area, it offers the perfect conditions for the exciting live demonstrations that are the hallmark of the unique trade fair duo. Around 230 exhibitors are expected, including the likes of Zeppelin, Kinshofer, Sany, Kiesel and Doppstadt. These will present their construction machinery, equipment and recycling systems in realistic processes, either at their stands or on one of the five demonstration building sites and special theme areas.
New branding underlines unique combination of topics
RATL now also has a new combined logo. This aims to highlight both the equal importance of the two featured industries and how they match together. “Our new branding reflects how the demonstration trade fair has developed with customers in mind. The positive feedback we received on the combination of topics was an important factor behind this step. 70 per cent of visitors to RATL 2022 said that the compact overview of both the recycling and civil engineering industries was their main reason for attending”, says Beate Frères, Director of In-House Trade Fairs. The focus on demonstrations that makes RATL so unique has also been incorporated as a key part of the new branding.
