INSTALACJE International Trade Fair of Installations and Equipment,Poznań, Poland

After a two-year-long break, the most important fair of the installations branch is coming back, namely INSTALACJE International Trade Fair of Installations and Equipment. From 8th to 11th April this year, Poznań will become the Polish capital of installers and installation designers in the expected number of 30 thousand people. It is hard not to be surprised for the visitors will have a perfect opportunity to get familiar with doing any sort of installation works, based on the latest technology, in the same place and at the same time. They will also have a possibility to discuss and exchange experiences as part of numerous auxiliary events. The latest product offers and technologies of Polish and foreign exhibitors, conferences, debates concerning the most intriguing topics of the branch, will all await the fair visitors.

Installations available for everyone
A widespread action promoting INSTALACJE Fair will soon start in more than 400 locations in the whole Poland. All that will happen thanks to the cooperation with installation warehouses including Bims Plus, Tadmar, Grupa SBS, as well as Grupa ABG, where free invitations to the fair will be distributed. Furthermore, the Grupa SBS will continue an incredibly successful project titled “Aukcja Autokarowa” (Coach Action), which resulted in over 3,000 invited installers and Group clients from the whole Poland who visited the last edition of the fair.

4th edition of Polish Installers Championship
Commenced in 2013 the RoadShow project, dealing with searching for the best installers in Poland, resulted in a huge number of talented professionals who will fight for the title of the Champion of Poland in Poznań. Nearly 100 installers, who will challenge the time and precision of installations, were chosen in the qualifiers. It is still possible to join in the competition as there are still 32 places open, making it possible to compete for the best title and beat the record of 1:13.60. Is there anyone who will dare beat Waldemar Jackowski, the present record holder and the Champion of Poland? We will find out about it soon, at INSTALACJE Fair. It is worth adding that the jackpot equals 100 thousand zloty, and, additionally, a Mercedes Citan for the winner!

I am intelligent
A project, Intelligent building, created together with SECUREX International Security Exhibition which is taking place now appears very interesting. In the era of skyrocketing technological development, where all it takes to manage a whole house or even a building, is a wireless device, new challenges will await installers. A proper installation preparation as well as application of perfectly-tailored devices and elements significantly influences upon functionability maximization, comfort and safety, yet minimizing exploitation and modernization costs and as well as harmful emissions. All products offered by the exhibitors, which are used in integrated management systems will be marked with a caption ‘I am intelligent – Intelligent Building’, making it easier for the visitors to find the products, as well as detailed information from the exhibitors at the fair.

System heat
It is the second time this year that TCS System Heating Trade Fair will join the fair events. It will be directed to the heating industry, which will complement and extend the offer range of system solutions of thermal energy management in buildings and such components as: solid and gas fuel boilers, heat pumps, solar collectors, photovoltaic cells. The TCS fair will be accompanied by a conference organized by Izba Gospodarcza Ciepłownictwo Polskie (Economic Chamber of Polish Heat Engineering) which is to tackle the topics of modern, efficient, ecological technologies used in system heating.
Hundreds of novelties, thousands of products of various applications and technological solutions in offer, including such gems as highly innovative products of perfect quality, which were recognized by the demanding jury composed of branch experts, winners of the MTP Gold Medal, struggles of finalists of Polish Installers Championships, as well as many other, interesting attractions. This is how the INSTALACJE Fair and the parallel events could be presented in a nutshell. It is impossible to describe all the events prepared by the organizers; it is therefore worth reserving some time in order to become a part of one of the most important  event in this year’s calendar of fair events. Just get installed in Poznań!
