A+A = everything health and safety, under one roof!

Trade visitors from all over the world will meet for the A+A International Trade Fair and Congress in Düsseldorf, Germany, between October 17 and 20. SHEQ Management visited the fair in 2015 and, if that show was anything to go by, we expect A+A 2017 to be even bigger and better.

A+A 2017 will present the world’s latest trends and products in the fields of safety in the workplace, health promotion at work and security management in companies. Approximately 1 900 exhibitors are expected to take part.

The occupational health and safety field is expanding worldwide.

“Those coming to A+A in Düsseldorf in October will experience an industry in growth. The market for personal protective equipment is considered especially dynamic: it currently boasts a volume of some €18 billion (R272 billion) worldwide.

“Of this, 38 percent (€5,8 billion, R87,67 billion) is accounted for by European Union markets, and €1,8 billion (R27,21 billion) by Germany alone. Experts expect the market to continue growing,” the organisers say.

A+A 2017 will place specific emphasis on personal protective equipment (PPE), with an international PPE Specialist Conference entitled New Momentum for PPE Sales in a Digital World.

Speakers from Amazon Business, Lyreco, Kübler, Uvex Safety Group and Zamro will share their knowledge, while new regulations governing PPE and the potential for cooperation between manufacturers and dealers will also feature on the agenda.

Full details are available on the A+A website.
