The 32nd International CONTROL Exhibition will take place from 24th – 27th April, 2018 at the Stuttgart Exhibition Center in Germany. This event is arguably the most important event on the calendar for metrology equipment suppliers to showcase their very latest technologies to global visitors.
The 2017 Control international trade fair was the largest to-date occupying 565,000 square feet of exhibition floor space with more than 900 exhibitors from 31 countries and attended by almost 30,000 visitors from 106 countries.
The prospects are good for strong growth once again states Control project manager Gitta Schlaak: “More than five months before the trade fair opens we can report a booking level of greater than 90% of the results achieved for exhibitor numbers and exhibition floor space at the event in 2017. And this makes us confident that we’ll be able to top the figures from 2017 – especially in light of the fact that we’ll occupy exhibition hall 8 for the first time at Control 2018, so that the world’s leading trade fair for quality assurance will have more than 645,000 square feet of exhibition floor space at its disposal. Floor space allocation is already running at full bore because new and considerably improved conditions will prevail for exhibitors as well as visitors at the Stuttgart Exhibition Center for the event in 2018.”
New exhibition hall 10 which will be available, associated new construction of the West entrance area and accompanying infrastructure measures involving improved access roads, parking spaces, seminar rooms, utility rooms and restaurant resulting in a new layout which will provide for a smoother admission process in the morning hours. In the future, the East and West entrance areas will have equal status so that the stream of visitors will be more uniformly distributed, which will relieves the situation in the entrance areas and permit the exhibitors to better plan capacity for booth and support personnel.
Control’s exhibition hall layout will also become more visitor-friendly in 2018 because halls 3, 5 and 7 (odd-numbered row), as well as 4, 6 and 8 (even-numbered row), are now arranged in a “block-like” fashion. This results in short distances between the individual exhibition segments, which in turn permits targeted visit planning and a time-optimized trade fair tour.
