VFA Forum interlift (in trade fair years)

Forum Interlift – Jan König

More than every seventh visitor to the interlift ́19 in Augsburg came to the international VFA Forum (in 2017 it was more than every tenth visitor). 49 speakers from 13 nations drew more than 2,900 listeners to the forum with their highly topical presentations: They provided information on the most exciting international lift markets, on changes in the lift-related body of regulations, on innovative products and new services as well as on other important topics such as the future-oriented technologies of digitalisation and BIM. The two presentations on the subject of Building Information Modeling BIM attracted record numbers of 110 and 150 visitors respectively. The topic of digitalisation/smart technologies was examined in 14 lectures and listened to by an audience of around 900. Also of great interest were the presentations of the international lift markets from different perspectives and the explanations of standards and directives. The VFA Forum thus reliably reflected current events and developments in the lift industry worldwide.
