The world’s largest trade fair for the occupational health and safety industry, A+A Düsseldorf, attracted a whopping 1 930 exhibitors from 63 nations, and more than 67 000 trade visitors, during October. With its new look and strong focus on people, this rise in the fair’s activities indicates the undeniable importance of health and safety in the workplace.

“It is fabulous that A+A is not just a stage for new technologies, but is now also being seen globally as a bridgehead between the past and the future of our world of work,” says Messe Düsseldorf MD, Joachim Schäfer.

“We are proud to have been able to send out strong signals to the markets and key impulses for political debate,” he adds.

“People matter, and the A+A once again introduced many innovative products, even more exhibitors from all specialist fields and a rising number of very interested trade visitors from home and abroad," comments Klaus Bornack, president of the Trade Fair Advisory Board and MD of Bornack GmbH.

“This is confirmation that personal protective equipment (PPE) is a growth market and that A+A is a leading international marketplace for safety at work.”

The adjoining International Congress for Occupational Safety and Occupational Medicine attracted some 5 000 delegates, who could benefit from up to 60 seminars. One of the most popular of these was Fighting Cancer at the Workplace.

The A+A Congress was accompanied by the conference of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the International Social Security Association (ISSA), which were attended by top-ranking figures.

The next A+A Düsseldorf trade fair will be held from November 5 to 8, 2019.
