28 September - 3 October 2015, International Fair Plovdiv
Upsurge in construction is the new tendency that stands out at the 71st International Technical Fair in Plovdiv. The Business forum for investment goods and technologies, which is one of the most prestigious in Southeast Europe is organized by International Fair Plovdiv and its partners are branch unions and large Bulgarian companies. Leading companies from 35 countries are taking part in it.
The Autumn Fair is known for the presentation of innovations, which is the reason why it has been defined as the largest technology meeting on the Balkans. In the last two or three years innovations were mainly related to green business and energy efficiency, while this year construction is dominating.
The specialized exhibition “Stroytech” shows a wide range of products, which combine advanced technologies with solutions for the provision of comfort in buildings and energy saving. With four new initiatives the exhibition “Stroytech” turns into a “fast track” for the introduction of innovation in the industry.
Robots are a focus in the exhibition “Machine Building”, which is among the best within the framework of the business forum. The “smart machines” are no longer used in industry only. They enter everyday life as well. Manufacturers and traders of electrical, electronic, transport and auto service equipment are also vividly present at AUTUMN 2015.
The specialized automobile exhibition is being reopened. Dealers of most of the world-renowned brands, present on the Bulgarian market, are participating in “Autoworld”.
The Autumn Fair presents also many innovations for cost reduction for the businesses. They are mainly related to energy saving and to automation of production and services. This enables entrepreneurs to free up funds for investments in modern technologies, equipment and products.
The 71st edition of the business forum is again a showcase of the achievements in machine building, construction, electronics, electrical engineering, power engineering, ecology, water management, information technology, chemical and mining industry, transport and auto service equipment and automotive industry.
Nearly 30 products are competing in the Innovation Competition, which determines the winners of gold medals – the highest market distinction for new products of high quality, meeting the EU standards.
