area30 is the most important date in Novy's calendar as a manufacturer of high-quality cooker hoods and hobs. Here we meet our trade audience and reach existing and new sales partners not only from Germany but also from the surrounding markets. From year to year we see that the frequency and above all the quality of the visitors increases significantly.

This year’s area30 was truly positive. As far as I could tell, the mood among the exhibitors was very good, which was also thanks to the good visitor contacts. We believe that area30 in particular is an important contributor to enabling the entire industry to exhibit as part of in-house exhibitions. area30 has become an important date in the line-up of autumn in-house exhibitions.

Managing Director, Arbeitsgemeinschaft Die Moderne Küche e.V. (AMK)

For us, area30 has quite simply been the trade fair par excellence for years now – this is where top B2B encounters take place, and where we can engage in dialogues about innovations, trends and requirements with an unbelievable number of industry partners. We need this in order to continue to develop and position our products and services as successfully as we have to date. Berbel looks forward to an outstanding trade fair this year for everyone!

area30 is the best platform for us to introduce new additions and receive feedback. It’s a place where we can address the right target group for us directly and at the same time have the opportunity to discuss the industry and its trends in fascinating conversations with visitors and exhibitors. All in all, area30 is a great marketplace and always on our calendar for the year.

area30 was a complete success for Samsung household appliances and exceeded our expectations. As a trade fair hotspot for the kitchen and furniture trade, area30 offered us an ideal platform to not only show what the full range of our household appliances has to offer, but also to acquire new customers. With “Ideas you can rely on” serving as the slogan, we were able to present our major innovations in the field of built-in appliances and networked kitchens to both existing and new customers alike.

Personal discussions with kitchen retailers are the key element behind our desire to achieve perfection in development, production and sales. area30 is an annual highlight enabling us to have close contact with our customers and has proved once again to be indispensable for presenting our new arrivals as well as our product research.

Lasse Naber
Managing Director, Naber

We’ve already exhibited at area30 eight times now because the trade fair format has been very successful for us. We kicked things off on a high note last year with very good visitor numbers and were luckily able to improve on this. In our opinion, both exhibitors and visitors benefit equally from a top-class event.

One of our main concerns this year was to show retailers that kitchens are sold with emotion – and we succeeded in this endeavour, not only by taking the right actions but also by implementing an all-round successful trade fair presentation.

Franz Bahlmann
Managing Director, KüchenTreff

The area30 show is one of the most welcome events in our trade show calendar. Area30 has had a really positive influence on the development of our business.

For many years the kitchen industry has met in Ostwestfalen in the autumn. area30 offers all manufacturers who do not have a showroom an opportunity to present the newest trends and developments. The good logistical networking, the professional organisation and the abundance of interested exhibitors have made it an event that practically no kitchen retailer can ignore. As one of the “founding members”, ORANIER has been able to observe the steady upward trend as an exhibitor. Well done – keep it coming!

Nikolaus Fleischhacker

As an exhibitor from the very start, area30 has always been an excellent platform for us to impress the numerous trade visitors with our product portfolio and the Lechner brand. Especially as a manufacturer of a haptically sophisticated product world, trade fairs offer the perfect opportunity to personally present our skills and expertise when it comes to our range of worktops and back walls. At the same time, we are also looking forward to surprise visitors with new innovations and designs this year.

Andrea Lechner-Meidel
Executive Board, Lechner Holding AG

It is very important to us to be present at area30 for our customers from all over Germany and increasingly from other countries. In the surroundings of the Küchenmeile show and in the vicinity of major kitchen manufacturers, area30 has the ideal location and takes place at the perfect time. It is both an innovation exhibition and an ordering trade show. For this reason, the presence of many popular companies ensures a high number of visitors for smaller exhibitors.

“Dornbracht has decided to present its premium products at Area 30 starting from the 2016 ‘Kitchen Mile’. Area 30 is without a doubt the kitchen hotspot in East Westphalia. We are looking forward to having good talks and meeting new clients. We especially want to raise awareness for the kitchen fittings that will not only attract considerably more interest as solid work horses that are used 30,000 times a year, but are also an integral part of all good kitchen planning as an element in the creative design of worktops. For that you need real-life experience of trade fairs like Area30.”
