The Corona pandemic seems to be largely under control thanks to the vaccination campaign, which is progressing well internationally, and the world is preparing for a return to normality. Against this background, the joint decision of organizer AFAG and trade sponsor VFA-Interlift e.V. to postpone the leading international trade fair for the elevator industry by six months to April 2022 proves to be a logical one.
With the new date (April 26 – 29, 2022), exhibitors will regain a high degree of planning security. On the other hand, travel restrictions will increasingly be eliminated worldwide, a decisive factor for the vast majority of elevator companies and visitors involved. In addition, a very “discreet” hygiene concept can also be assumed at the interlift at this time.
Well over 300 elevator companies have now registered for interlift, and a good 80 percent of the available space has been booked. The clear majority of them welcome the later date of the trade fair. For this very reason, a whole series of companies are also tending to participate for the first time in the world’s leading industry event. So the prospects for the coming interlift are good.
Elevator industry: Global survey confirms positive situation
A further improvement in the already positive situation of the international elevator industry was revealed by the latest global survey conducted by VFA-Interlift e.V.: the situation in April was described as better than in January, with this development being attributed primarily to other European countries. This assessment also applies to the coming six months.
interlift digital: Preview of the highlights in October 2021
Although interlift will not take place until six months later, an exciting preview of the world’s leading trade fair for elevator technology will already be presented on the original date (October 19 – 22) as part of a digital event. Because of the longer timeframe, industry insiders are expecting a large number of innovations at interlift. Once again, the focus is likely to be on digital solutions for a wide range of applications.
interlift 2023 again on the usual October date
This was also decided by interlift organizer AFAG and the technical sponsor VFA-Interlift: After this one-time postponement, it’s back to the usual date in October. This has already been fixed: interlift 2023 will take place from Tuesday, October 17 to Friday, October 20.
