belektro – ernergized Berlin

The belektro trade show is a proven industry platform for new product launches.

“belektro 2016 went very well for us. The shorter running time from Tuesday to Thursday proved a big success. For us the high points were the Wednesday, when we received lots of visitors, and the keen interest expressed by students and trainees. Here at belektro we were able to sign up ten pupils as future trainees, for example.”

Carsten Joschko, CEO, E|HANDWERKE Berlin/Brandenburg

“The Technical Lighting Society (LiTG) is an organisation representing everyone interested in lighting. By co-sponsoring the supporting programme at belektro, in particular the programme of papers at the LIGHTING DIALOGUE, we were able to address numerous lighting industry players and enable further contacts. They included electrical engineering customers, lighting designers as well as technicians, architects and scientists.”

Britta Hölzemann, deputy chairman of Berlin/Brandenburg Regional Group; Member of LiTG board

“At belektro we were able to establish contact with various audiences. Many of the key topics are interrelated, which we regard as positive. We particularly liked the new VEG Lounge where we held talks with customers in a positive atmosphere. We were very satisfied with the new concept. The shuttle buses were well organised and also very impressive.“

Thomas Waetzel, managing director, Obeta

“The electrical professions and Hager always make use of the good organisation at belektro to exchange information on new products and the market situation, such as the energy transition and changes in standards.
