For the second time, the Gefahrgut & Gefahrstoff Trade Fair has welcomed notable exhibitors and trade visitors from Germany and abroad with its systematic positioning as a European industry platform and an exhibition area that has grown by 30 per cent.
From 9 to 11 April 2019, 65 companies presented their solutions, products and services for hazardous goods transport, storage, internal logistics for hazardous substances and maximum safety in handling of highly sensitive goods and substances at the Leipzig Trade Fair. Visitors from over 20 European countries attended the fair. Alongside the high-calibre conference programme, various practical demonstrations and conferences relevant to the industry, decision-makers, specialist managers and security officers from the various transport and logistics sectors saw a broad range of opportunities to exchange knowledge and to expand their professional network on the three days of the event.

For the second time, the Gefahrgut & Gefahrstoff Trade Fair has welcomed notable exhibitors and trade visitors from Germany and abroad.
"We are delighted that the industry is so enthusiastic about the second edition of Gefahrgut & Gefahrstoff. Feedback from the exhibitors and the interest of participants show that it was the right decision to develop a platform for suppliers and users in this special field," emphasises Markus Geisenberger, Managing Director of Leipziger Messe. He adds, "This year's development is proof that the event is considered to be an attractive and promising industry platform for experts from Germany and abroad".
There were interesting live demonstrations at various stands. The capabilities of automated driving of electric forklifts, for example, have been demonstrated. These automatically slow down when their sensors detect the presence of a human being.
Two professional associations supported Leipziger Messe with their industry expertise in their role as conceptual partners of Gefahrstoff & Gefahrgut. The European Association of Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers (EASA) brought 25 national member associations from 20 European countries together and held its annual general assembly during the fair. The German Dangerous Goods Association (GGVD) brought its expertise to bear as the second conceptual sponsor, with, among other things, daily changing lecture blocks on special topics of dangerous goods transport involving the various modes of transport.
