It has been a good two and a half years since the international lift industry met at its most important platform worldwide, the interlift. Now the time has finally come again: from 26 – 29 April around 350 component manufacturers from currently 27 countries will present their innovations at the Augsburg Trade Fair Centre.
There is no question that the interlift 2022 will take place. In the recent past, several organisers have already clearly demonstrated that trade fairs can take place successfully under the current conditions. And the majority of experts all over the world now assume that the situation will continue to ease in the coming weeks and months. Against this background, it is also realistic to expect that about 60 % of the visitors to the previous event in April will come to Augsburg – a value that has recently also been registered at other trade fairs.
interlift 2022 more European than last time
The interlift 2022 presents itself more European than last time: 32% (2019: 29%), of the participating companies come from Germany 64% (54%) from other European countries and 4% (17%) from Asia and America. Even if the coming interlift does not yet reach the usual level of internationality again, far more nations will be represented at the world’s leading trade fair for the lift sector than at any other industry event. And so the interlift 2022 will once again be the big family meeting place for the industry.
Trade fair participation for those who decide at short notice and free guest tickets
Exhibitors at the interlift 2022 will be supported by the organiser AFAG with many individual services. One of these is the complete stand, the ideal solution for smaller budgets (information at: www.interlift.de), which nevertheless enables effective trade fair participation, especially for companies that decide to participate at short notice. The new free guest card promises significant savings potential. In this way, any number of customers can be invited without burdening the trade fair budget.

“We at Novalift have always been regular and proud exhibitors at the interlift, and we have been very much waiting for this upcoming edition! Finally we have the opportunity not only to present our novelties to the public again, but above all to meet our partners, visitors and other exhibitors in person. Interlift is more than just an exhibition – it is the meeting point of the industry!!!
Peio Garciandia – ORONA – Public Affairs Director, Orona
“In these times full of challenges, it is particularly important that we meet in person and maintain our contacts. This interlift will be the most European ever. Everyone should be at this event!”
Peter Zeitler Managing Director / CEO NEW LIFT Steuerungsbau GmbH
“We are looking forward to the interlift! For us the interlift is of paramount importance, even though it may not be quite as internationally positioned now as it usually is. But the personal contact with our customers is more important than ever this time! Participation is out of the question for us, we have assessed the situation soberly and based on facts and decided clearly in favour of the interlift.”
Achim Hütter, Chairman VFA-Interlift e.V.
“Many governments of European countries are signalling the end of the Corona-related restrictions in the course of February/March. Under the conditions that will then apply, the holding of the interlift in April is assured. It can and will be the new start for the industry and, seen in this light, perhaps the most important event since its premiere 31 years ago.”
