STAHLGRUBER Exhibition Season 2018

Successful conclusion: Nurnberg trade fair closes a terrific STAHLGRUBER exhibition season for 2018

A tremendous start in Munich, two highly successful trade fairs in Chemnitz and Sindelfingen and a grand finale in Nurnberg – the STAHLGRUBER trade fairs set new standards again in 2018.

The STAHLGRUBER trade fairs are undeniably some of the most important industry events of the year. Together with our 200 exhibitors, representing the most important players in the automotive aftermarket, we were able to further reinforce our unique selling proposition in 2018.

“Awesome digitalisation” was this year’s motto, with a focus on digitalisation in the workshop, the vehicle and communication with customers. The repair and maintenance of driving assistance systems, digital workshop processes and modern customer information systems are no longer possible without the concept of “Workshop 4.0”. The interest of our trade visitors in these topics was tremendous. Their high level of engagement was also evident during free seminars covering our digital service booklet and new industry guidelines, such as the latest exhaust emissions testing protocol: they were extremely well attended at all four exhibition locations.

The latest lifting and diagnostic technology, tailpipe exhaust gas measurement, brake testing and modern headlight adjustment systems, were further examples of state of the art workshop topics at the STAHLGRUBER trade shows.

In Nurnberg, we were also able to welcome a high-level delegation from our new parent company LKQ to one of our exhibitions for the first time. Nick Zarcone, president and CEO of LKQ Corporation, was deeply impressed after an extensive tour: "It was an honor to attend the STAHLGRUBER trade fair in Nurnberg. STAHLGRUBER serves as critical link between our suppliers and work shop customers. The fair brought the entire ecosystem together with a spirit of collaboration and cooperation. On behalf of the LKQ board of directors I would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the STAHLGRUBER team for hosting such a successful trade fair. We also thank our customers for placing their trust in STAHLGRUBER, we look forward to serving their needs in the future."

We would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the dates for the upcoming exhibitions in 2019. There will be five locations for these STAHLGRUBER trade fairs: we start in Chemnitz (6-7 April), then we will be in Munich (4-5 May), followed by Frankfurt (18-19 May), Sindelfingen (19-20 October) and finally in Nurnberg (16-17 November).
