    PMRExpo 2018

    In its 18th year, the trade fair from 27 to 29 November 2018 again welcomed exhibitors and visitors from around the world to Koelnmesse.

    The leading European trade fair for secure communication with its 4,700 m² offered even more space for exchange with decision-makers and industry experts this year. 232 exhibitors - including 87 international - were glad to present their products and services to the trade visitors.

    The internationally oriented trade exhibition was supplemented by an extensive lecture programme with subject-specific focuses - this year for the first time with the "Secure Communications Summit", the symposium "Secure Communication for the Energy Industry" and interesting, daily changing forums.

    What the exhibitors say:

    “Both qualitatively and quantitatively, the leads we gained at PMRExpo 2018 surpasses all previous years. And the leads spanned the globe, from Iceland to Turkey. We spoke to people from all over Europe, especially Scandinavia and Central and Eastern Europe. We have benefited hugely from PMRExpo’s vast internationalisation.”
    Christian Cielinski, Panorama Antennas Ltd

    “PMRExpo was a great success. For another year running, we spoke with significantly more customers and partners than at the previous year’s event. On top of this, PMRExpo is almost like a family meeting for the industries, with many familiar faces and discussions with customers about market developments as well as day-to-day business. We’ve also had many international customers and colleagues at our stand, but it goes without saying that our main focus is on the German market. Nonetheless, we have gained more international customers.”
    Axel Kukuk, Director Key Account Management, Motorola Solutions Germany GmbH, Berlin

    “PMRExpo is very important for us as it enables us to meet very highly qualified people. These contacts approach us with the intention of holding in-depth discussions which continue long term. This was our fourth time here and we were as pleased as ever with the support provided by EW Medien und Kongresse GmbH as well as the top-quality equipment and the team’s professionalism.”
    Patrick Roth, Managing Director of Fireboard GmbH, Rodgau

    “PMRExpo is an extremely important event for pei tel. We support the trade fair and we’ve had a stall here for many years. Logically, we present products which we need to adapt to the market. We all know that the Tetra market in Germany is undergoing a transformation. We’re also aware that the fair is developing from a regional into a global trade fair. From this perspective, we’re eager to support and boost this change.” / “We have joined forces with PMeV once again. For us this is an important venue to exchange information and bring in the new generation of technology. We just want to be part of this.”
    Thomas Martin, Managing Director, pei tel Communications GmbH, Teltow

    “PMRExpo is the main trade fair for those of us in the radio communications business. It is constantly growing, hugely attractive, and draws everyone from decision-makers to end users. For us, the fair is unmissable.”
    Tjark Süchting, Field Sales Representative, Sinus Nachrichtentechnik GmbH, Barsbüttel

    “We had excellent discussions and considerable footfall. Even though BOS continues to dominate, we’re reaching an increasing number of industries and operators of critical infrastructures at PMRExpo. I was also pleased to note that the talk programme has improved and become more practice-oriented. PMRExpo is an ideal platform for adding new companies to our personal network.”
    Thomas Sartorius, Holmberg GmbH & Co. KG

    “Founded in 2015 as the German subsidiary of an American company, we are still very young. We’re attending PMRExpo for the first time this year to establish relationships and meet new and interesting contacts. PMRExpo was ideal for this. We are very pleased.”
    Nick Kirstan, RAM Mounts Germany GmbH

    “This is our third year running at PMRExpo. For us it’s the perfect platform. The quantity and quality of visitors were exceptional once again in 2018! As well as emergency services, PMRExpo is allowing us to reach more and more energy providers, airports and other companies.”
    Christopher Bick, stashcat/heinekingmedia gmbH

    “There has been a constant flow of visitors since the trade fair started, just like in years gone by. We haven’t had a single moment without someone visiting our stall, so we’re happy. The fair has got bigger to the point the stalls fill the hall. I keep hearing positive feedback and everyone seems to be looking forward to returning to PMRExpo next year. It has also become a very important point of networking within BOS. People meet here and converse, something which doesn’t seem to happen enough and people obviously only meet here once a year. We’ve been left only with positive impressions and we’ll be back next year!”
    Johann Delmenhorst, Industrieanlagen-Betriebsgesellschaft mbH (IABG)

    To our media partners, partners and sponsors for their support, our exhibitors for their contribution to the trade fair, the sponsors of the PMRExpo Career initiative for their commitment, our speakers and chairmen for their contribution, our visitors for their curiosity and for attending!
