The registrations for the 10th International Suppliers Fair (IZB), which will take place from 16th to 18th October 2018, are arriving at record speed: 3 weeks after the registration documents were sent out, nearly 80 percent of the exhibition area in the Allerpark in Wolfsburg has already been booked. This year's IZB is the first event for which the booking procedure has only been available online. The focus of this year's trade fair is the trend topic of “Digitalisation in the Automotive Industry”.
According to the IZB Project Manager, Stephan Böddeker, the huge interest in the trade fair and the large number of registrations already received more than a year before the event bode well for a successful IZB 2018. He also reports that alongside a multitude of new registrations, several exhibitors from last year's IZB have already rebooked their stand areas. “The high level of interest among exhibitors is impressive proof of the high significance of our trade fair for the supplier industry. The IZB has clearly established itself as Europe’s leading trade fair for the automotive supplier industry and will continue to secure its top position as it celebrates its tenth anniversary”, emphasises Böddeker.
The stand bookings received for the IZB 2018 so far have come from companies from a total of 25 different countries. The topic of Electrics/Electronics has attracted a particularly large amount of interest. “We are well on our way to achieving the total number of exhibitors recorded in 2016”, declares the IZB Project Manager. Last year, the IZB welcomed a total of around 800 exhibitors from 32 different countries and approximately 50,000 visitors from all over the world. The trade fair is therefore now more international than ever before.
The large number of bookings that have already been received and the huge amount of exhibitor interest in the event on a continuous basis are clear signs that interested companies should not wait too long before submitting their stand registration for the IZB 2018, especially given that only a limited amount of space is available. Furthermore, confirmation of participation will be sent out in the order in which registrations are received.
