The trade fair concept is based on a trend: the increasing demand for acoustically effective buildings and rooms, low-vibration and nice-sounding products and low-noise means of transport and traffic routes. Exactly these topics will be the focus of acoustex at the Dortmund Exhibition Centre in 2018. Exhibitor registration has already started.

The trade fair topics promise growing sales. An economic forecast by the market researchers of Allied Market Research, for example, shows that the global market for noise protection measures will increase from the currently about USD 9.8 billion to USD 14.6 billion in 2022.

Companies that offer products and solutions for noise control and sound design have until now predominantly exhibited at the flagship trade fair of their sector, where however acoustic issues often play only a subordinate role because of the numerous trade fair topics. The result is much waste coverage. Furthermore, on the demand side, the specialists in acoustic issues have until now not been offered a precisely tailored offer. Noise control and sound design are the only leading topics at acoustex.

“acoustex fills a gap in the trade fair landscape. Vendors of acoustically effective products and solutions will meet specialists from various sectors with matching projects. Efficient finding of new contacts and a practice-oriented exchange of information are objectives of the trade fair,” said Sabine Loos, CEO of Westfalenhallen Dortmund GmbH.

An accompanying programme of more than 100 hours with lectures and panel discussions ensures a high-quality trade fair offer. The acoustex topics have the headings; architecture, industry und traffic.

Who is expected?

Development engineers and technicians, builders at federal / state authority level and municipalities, for road, tunnel, rail and noise protection construction, traffic route planners with a focus on noise protection planning and representatives of road and rail construction companies, civic participation, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and physicians who deal with the health aspects of noise protection and sound insulation are awaited as trade visitors.

The acoustex trade fair offers expert forums with about 60 individual lectures and best-practice tours on the day before the trade fair, the Network Night in the evening of the first trade fair day and various guided tours for the trade visitors from Germany and the neighbouring European countries. Special stand construction packages make participation in the trade fair very easy for interested exhibitors. The first industry giants, some of them market leaders, have already confirmed their participation in acoustex 2018.
