STAHLGRUBER trade fair Frankfurt

Third stop on the STAHLGRUBER exhibition trail another success – half-time for the 2019 exhibition year

After Chemnitz and Munich, Frankfurt am Main was the third venue for the STAHLGRUBER exhibition last weekend. This exhibition was another great success for the car parts wholesaler based in Poing, near Munich. This year’s exhibition innovations, including the new professional forum and the technology centre, were met once again with great interest from our customers.  

“We’re very happy with the last of our Spring exhibitions. Frankfurt gave us the boost we needed so we can reenergise and focus on the Autumn exhibitions in Sindelfingen and Nuremberg”, declared Exhibition Director Michaela Hueber. On Saturday afternoon, however, they had to concede defeat to the noble sport of football – it came as no surprise that many visitors preferred to watch the Bundesliga final instead. 

“On the other hand, the turnout on Sunday was much larger than we’d expected, so both days balanced each other out perfectly”, Hueber added. 

According to the organisers, the new exhibition concept was very well received. The specialist lectures in the new professional forum were nearly always booked out. Topics such as coolant conversion, camera and radar systems, high-voltage vehicles or STAkis 4.0, the new, digital parts catalogue, are today’s major issues.

“We’ll use the time to include other topical issues in the concept of the Autumn exhibitions”, states STAHLGRUBER company spokesman Elmar Voltz. “At all three exhibitions, our customers posed very interesting questions and provided a number of good suggestions – we fully intend to satisfy this demand for information in the Autumn”.

Another highlight for visitors to the Frankfurt am Main exhibition was – as in Chemnitz and Munich – the vintage car show made possible by the many owners who took up our invitation to attend the Oldtimer Meetup. Some 50 vehicles were on display, including a rare three-seater Matra Murena, a VW Karmann Ghia and a Chevrolet pickup from the late 50s.
