The IZB 2018 – Almost fully booked in record time

The IZB 2018 – Almost fully booked in record time

The exhibition area available for the 10th International Suppliers Fair (IZB), which will take place from 16th to 18th October 2018, is almost fully booked. The booking phase has thus reached a new record level.

The entire exhibition area of some 37,000 square metres in Wolfsburg's Allerpark was sold within a mere six weeks. Already four weeks after the beginning of registration at the end of August, over 90 percent of the area from 2016 had been allocated. "We are very pleased with the vast interest in the IZB 2018 and the rapid rental of exhibition space."

This year, for the first time, stand booking took place exclusively online, which proved extraordinarily successful, significantly accelerating the registration process and greatly simplifying the time and effort both for exhibitors and for the project team. "The key exhibition theme of the IZB 2018 is digitalisation in the automotive industry. This attracted many exhibitors", explains Stephan Böddeker.

The stand reservations come from all over the world. Companies from 25 nations exhibit at the trade fair. A majority of the companies is involved in the field of electrics/electronics – one of the key topics at the IZB. Moreover, eight out of ten of the world's largest automotive suppliers are part of the event in Wolfsburg. Also very interesting to note: roughly one third of the exhibitors is from outside of Germany. 75 percent of the registered companies have already been represented at an IZB in the past, and 66 percent were already exhibitors last year.

For companies still interested in participating in the exhibition can be put on the waiting list.
