Gaining visibility as a sponsor of NUFAM

Being even more visible as an exhibitor works particularly well through sponsorship. We have worked out a whole range of options for our customers. Of course, we make sure that there is something for every need. We have summarised a selection of pre-planned offers in the sponsoring brochure. If the package still needs to be adapted or optimised, we do this in joint dialogue with our clients.

"The demand for a stand at NUFAM at such an early stage has never been as strong as at the coming edition of the commercial vehicle fair in Karlsruhe", says Jochen Bortfeld, the project manager of NUFAM.

"A large proportion of the exhibitors at the last NUFAM have already confirmed their participation for 2021 again. Some new companies will also know how to inspire the visitors at NUFAM from 30.09. - 03.10.2021".

Currently, customers are still benefiting from the early booking price, which allows for discounted participation.

NUFAM 2021 - GET THINGS MOVING!

2017-10-01
A Profitable Platform

NUFAM 2017 came to a successful conclusion. The full spectrum of products and services in the commercial vehicles industry was shown by 370 exhibitors from 17 countries. Presenting an even broader selection this year, NUFAM occupied the entire fairgrounds for the first time. Over 20,000 participants explored the unprecedentedly large exhibition area, which spanned more than 70,000 square meters. NUFAM registered significantly higher business activity among the specialized visitors: one in five made investment decisions onsite and one in three is concretely planning to purchase items after the fair, which accordingly promises growth of 10% compared to the previous event. Investments made directly at the fair by professional visitors increased by 52% compared to the preceding NUFAM.

“NUFAM’s evolution is a success story. Favourably positioned in the economically strong region of southern Germany, this fair is an excellent platform for investment decisions by industry visitors from throughout Germany and its neighbouring countries. Our accurately targeted solicitation of German professional visitors led to record-breaking sales by the exhibitors”, Britta Wirtz summarizes. The fair’s national importance is also evident in the strong interest shown by policymakers and relevant associations. For example, Winfried Hermann, Minister for Transport of the State of Baden-Württemberg, paid two visits to NUFAM, thus further emphasizing the fair’s importance.

NUFAM – A Forum for Decision-Makers

For the first time in its history, NUFAM attracted visitors from all of Germany’s federal states. The percentage of specialized visitors who travelled more than 300 kilometres to attend this event rose markedly for the second consecutive time, posting a seven percent increase this year. The exhibitors noticed this too: “We can feel that the catchment area has continued to grow compared to the previous fair. We held discussions with customers from neighbouring foreign countries. For example, we had several customers from France at our stand”, emphasizes Hans Brunner, Regional Sales Director, F.X. Meiller Fahrzeug- und Maschinenfabrik-GmbH & Co KG. Daniel Thommen, Managing Director of the telematics expert Lost n Found AG, is likewise pleased by the large number of European professional visitors: “We reach potential new customers here and we had several prospective buyers from Switzerland, Austria and Lithuania at our stand.”

NUFAM particularly scored points with the exhibitors thanks to the large percentage of specialists among its visitors. Exhibitors especially praised the quality and frequency of the visitors at their stands. This was confirmed, for example, by Christoph Huber, Sales Director at MAN Truck & Bus Deutschland GmbH: “But above all, it’s important for us that we really did brisk business here. We had a significantly larger number of successful transactions this year than at the previous fair and we are pleased that we sold several hundred trucks.”

Alternative drives and numerous new products spark visitors’ enthusiasm

The exhibitors further increased their utilization of NUFAM as a forum for market launches. New and innovative players in this industry also presented their products and concepts at the trade show. “We specifically showed our electric commercial vehicles for cities and metropolitan areas to our customers and we initiated many good business contacts. We were definitely able to reach our target group of large fleet customers”, says Marcus Arens, Director Marketing and Sales at Streetscooter GmbH. In addition to viewing new products, visitors were also very strongly interested in classical vehicle and trailer construction: “We were quite successful here. We made successful deals and prepared the ground for numerous future transactions, so we are very satisfied. We will certainly return two years from now”, says Markus Wiedemann, Sales Director at Humbaur GmbH.

Visitors likewise strongly appreciated the extensive framework programme for transport and logistics companies, as well as the “Theme Days” for tradesmen and professional truck drivers. The “Treffpunkt Kommunal”, i.e. the “Municipal Meeting Place”, was especially warmly received: many municipal decision-makers took advantage of this top-class event as an opportunity to acquire pertinent information. Municipal fleet managers showed particularly avid interest in vehicles with zero-emission and low-emission drives.

NUFAM looks forward to welcoming its 100,000th specialized visitor at the next fair, which will take place from 26 to 29 September 2019.

Umfrage gestartet: Zukunft des Nutzfahrzeuggeschäfts
Breites Angebot und viele Neuigkeiten zum Thema „vernetztes Fahren“ bei BPW

Das Unternehmen mit Stammsitz im deutschen Wiehl hat sich folgende Unternehmensaussage gegeben: so ziemlich alles, was den Transport bewegt, sichert, beleuchtet, intelligent macht und digital vernetzt, wird von der BPW Gruppe erforscht, entwickelt und produziert.

Weltweit ist die Unternehmensgruppe mit ihren Marken BPW, Ermax, HBN, HESTAL und idem telematics ein Systempartner der Nutzfahrzeugbranche für Fahrwerke, Bremsen, Beleuchtung, Verschließ- und Aufbautentechnik, Telematik sowie weitere Komponenten für Truck, Trailer und Bus.

Eines der aktuell viel diskutierten Trendthemen in der Nutzfahrzeugbranche ist die Vernetzung von Fracht, Fahrer und Fahrzeugen. Mit dem Anspruch, innovative Lösungen zu präsentieren, die den Transport effizienter, sicherer und umweltverträglicher machen, stellt die BPW Bergische Achsen KG in Halle 2, Stand C 207 auf der NUFAM aus.

Im Fokus steht dabei der mehrfach preisgekrönte „iGurt“, ein smartes Ladungssicherungssystem, das die Vorspannkraft des Spanngurtes beim Verzurren der Fracht anzeigt und während der Fahrt laufend überwacht. Laut BPW löst „iGurt“ ein großes Problem der Logistikbranche, denn mangelhafte Ladungssicherung gilt als Hauptursache für Transportschäden in Höhe von 1,2 Milliarden Euro sowie für 25 bis 30 Prozent der Verkehrsunfälle im Schwerlastverkehr.

Ein weiteres innovatives Produkt von BPW ist das neue „AirSave“-System. Es regelt den Reifendruck vollautomatisch und verhindert so gefährliche Reifenplatzer und vorzeitigen Verschleiß. Was das für den Fuhrpark, die Kosten und die Umwelt bedeuten kann, werden die Fachleute vor Ort erläutern.
