Over 41 500 trade visitors from 87 countries followed the call of the FARBE 2016 (FAF FARBE, AUSBAU & FASSADE) to Munich at the beginning of March 2016.
The positive increases in the proportion of visitors from Germany and abroad, as well as the countries in which the industries are active, show that this trade fair is developing more and more into a leading European fair.
It was the first time that Big Wipes exhibited at the show and the success was overwhelming. European painters and decorators discovered what their British counterparts have known for years: Big Wipes are incomparable in their ability to remove paint, whether it be oil, water or hammer finish. Containing four powerful cleaning agents and four skin conditioners, preservative-free Big Wipes cleaning wipes not only eliminate grime, but at the same time moisture and nourish the skin.
This year’s campaign slogan for the German trade fair was “The Future is our Building Site”, the idea being that painters, decorators and plasterers at FARBE 2016 were given the tools, from new technology to specialist information, to master the future challenges of their specialist trades.
The trade fair shows the trends and challenges the industry will be dealing with and we believe that this will also include the increasing need for a truly industrial-strength multi-purpose cleaning wipe. Big Wipes are designed for use by professional tradespeople who need an extremely effective and immediate on-hand cleaning product – which at the same time is kind to their skin.
“The FAF FARBE, AUSBAU & FASSADE gives the industry an enormous motivational boost – from young talent to the masters. The buzz could be felt throughout all four days. The good order situation led to concrete ordering decisions being made at the trade fair. This trade fair is and will remain the most important industry meeting to occur every three years, as the product range displayed is one-of-a-kind in Europe.” Dieter Dohr, Chairman of the GHM Gesellschaft fuer Handwerksmessen mbH.
Juergen G. Hilger, President of the UEEP, added: “It was a perfect place for visiting tradespeople to find out information, compare thoughts and obtain advice. Such a market overview is unique in Europe. Here, all specialist business people and experts could experience how our profession is transforming and how it is developing. Previously, all that was needed was the watchful eye of a master, but now a whole host of instruments is required because of legal regulations and the increasing requirements of customers.
“The FAF is so important as it presents the information and the new products and technologies that ultimately provide our tradespeople a secure foundation on which to practice and represent this exciting profession.”
