THE FORUM

Extensive provision of services not just procurement

This has been a main aim since the founding of the EUROBAUSTOFF FORUM in 2010. Moving away from pure procurement management, to service providers who offer a wide range of services. The EUROBAUSTOFF FORUM created the appropriate platform to achieve this aim. EUROBAUSTOFF business partners can marvel at innovative products, make connections with service providers from the transport, logistics and advertising industries, be inspired by exhibition samples or learn from our specialist presentations.

The forum in previous years

In the meantime, the EUROBAUSTOFF FORUM can look back on many successful years. Visitor and exhibitor numbers have steadily increased since the first exhibition in 2010. Most recently, in 2015, more than 10,000 visitors attended the FORUM to admire innovative new products and exhibitions, which were showcased in three exhibition halls totalling over 40,000 m² of exhibition space.

The forum is now not only a meeting and discussion platform for business partners and their employees, but it has also become one of the most important industry events alongside the construction trade fair in Munich.

The idea behind the Order Trade Fair

Following the 2011 FORUM, it was clear that in addition to the existing exhibition, a solely ordering event was required in a smaller setting. This allows business partners to focus even more on exhibitors and suppliers from the retail sector.

To achieve this aim, the EUROBAUSTOFF FORUM Ordering + Concepts was created. This forum always has just one focus. As in 2012 and 2014, the 2016 Order Trade Fair focused on specialist retailers, gardening and hardware stores. The FORUM Ordering + Concepts alternates yearly with the regular exhibition.
