The year 2017 is now drawing to a close. For us, the trade fair project team at Wolfsburg AG, the main focus of the year was our intensive work on preparing for the next International Suppliers Fair (IZB). The highlight of the year in this respect was the extremely rapid booking phase, which broke a new record. Within just eight weeks, the exhibition area covering nearly 37,000 square metres in the Allerpark in Wolfsburg was fully booked.

Next year is particularly special for us because we will celebrate the tenth International Suppliers Fair from 16th to 18th October 2018. With approximately 50,000 trade visitors and around 800 exhibiting companies from 32 different countries, the IZB 2016 was more international than ever before. Next year, we are also expecting to welcome exhibiting companies from at least 32 different countries and we are positive that we can build on the success of the last event. The IZB 2018 will focus on the special topic of “Think Digital”, which captures the spirit of the times and explores a key issue in the international automotive supplier industry.

We shall like to bring this greeting and, indeed, this year to a close by wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas, a relaxing festive period and a very happy start to the IZB anniversary year of 2018.

Greetings from Wolfsburg,
Your IZB Team
