Safety and health at work continue to move into the focus of politics and society
A+A 2021 – the leading International Trade Fair for Safety, Security and Health at Work – drew to a successful close after four days. 1,204 exhibitors from 56 nations and more than 25,000 trade visitors travelled to Düsseldorf, Germany to attend the sector’s most relevant trade fair. With these figures A+A – and the concurrently held International Congress for Occupational Safety and Occupational Medicine – again clearly reflected the significantly increased relevance of safety at the workplace.
More than ever, the focus is on people’s health. “People Matter”, the motto of A+A, is currently experiencing an enormous increase in importance. The pandemic and hygiene topics played a central role at A+A 2021, alongside the latest developments in innovative protective equipment. But megatrends such as digitalization and sustainability were also among the key topics at this year’s leading trade show.
Exhibitors were very satisfied with the results of A+A 2021. 94% confirmed already at this early stage that they would take part again at A+A 2023. More than 25,000 trade visitors from Germany and other European countries visited the international trade fair as well as the 37th International Congress of Occupational Safety and Occupational Medicine. Trade visitors gathered information on the latest trends in the areas of occupational safety, corporate health promotion and safety management at companies. Well over 90% stated that they had achieved their trade fair attendance goals and gave a very good overall rating.
