Press Release 5

Pleasing interim status

November 2019: Trade fair director Dr. Friedhelm Rese describes the registration status for the next international demonstration fair for the raw and building materials industry as very satisfactory: The signs more than nine months before the start of steinexpo 2020 clearly show a positive development. Almost all market leaders from the fields of dismantling-loading-transporting-processing have so far registered for participation. This currently corresponds to an occupancy rate of around 75% of the available outdoor exhibition area. Even the indoor areas in the large pavilions, which are traditionally only booked later, are already registering a rate of around 45%.

steinexpo goes digital

July 2019: When the gates open for the 11th international demonstration trade fair in August of the coming year and a new "steinexpo” season is ushered in, it will mark something special in several respects – because this will also mean "30 years of steinexpo". A lot has changed since the trade fair premiere in 1990: the show is enjoying ever greater acceptance by the market and the industry, and nearly all market leaders have already registered for steinexpo 2020, more than a year before it starts. Growing visitor numbers, more and more national and international exhibitors and innovative, larger machines have transformed the face of steinexpo as much as new digital developments.

The "new" fairgrounds of steinexpo 2020

June 2019: On 21 and 22 May 2019, the steinexpo organiser Geoplan GmbH invited booked and potential new exhibitors of steinexpo 2020 to the well-known and established fairgrounds in the quarry of the Mitteldeutsche Hartstein-Industrie AG (MHI) in Homberg/Nieder-Ofleiden. Besides the new spatial conditions, other offerings with great visitor benefits were also presented. These were extremely well received by the participants and will add significant added value to the 11th steinexpo from 26 to 29 August 2020.

The starting signal for steinexpo 2020 has been given

April 2019: steinexpo will again be the meeting place of choice for the European raw materials and building materials industry from 26 to 29 August 2020. The main corner stones for this rather exotic yet successful trade fair have already been laid. This means that all the basic preparatory planning work for this largest quarry demonstration show on the European mainland has been completed. This guarantees that exhibitors and visitors alike will once again find the terrain in Europe's largest basalt quarry in Homberg/Nieder-Ofleiden developed to provide the most ideal exhibition space. This basic preparation stage is concluded by the sending out of the exhibitor documents.

Final report for 2017

Milestoneexpo achieves records

4 September 2017: The 10th steinexpo closed with a fantastic success. The objective of the organizers of this quarry demonstration exhibition, which ran from 30 August until 2 September 2017, was to once more achieve the same number of visitors as in 2014 (44,130) - in reality, these expectations were sensationally exceeded. The official number of visitors increased to 53,890 - a plus of 12% in comparison to 2014. Exhibitors commented favourably on the quality of the visitors, the good organization of the exhibition and confirmed the excellent discussions with experts.
