The environmental trade fair for underground waste water infrastructure

Everything about pipes and sewers on 26 000 sq. m. exhibition area

More exhibitors, more exhibition area: The pipeline and sewer industry is meeting in Kassel

It is the first event for the pipeline and sewer industry next year: The RO-KA-TECH in Kassel opens its gates from May 8th to May 10th for its national and international visitors. Each day, products, services and innovations will be presented to you on an exhibition area of a total 26 000 sq. m. – an area greater than ever.

“We got a lot of positive response from our exhibitors on the last RO-KA-TECH. We even were able to allocate about half of the exhibition area within the first six months of this year,” Ralph Sluke, managing director of the organizer Germany’s association for pipeline and sewage technology companies (VDRK – Verband der Rohr- und Kanal-Technik-Unternehmen e.V.) explains. After the record year 2017 the total amount of exhibitors will rise again to 300 companies and organizations. “We notice that the RO-KA-TECH enjoys a great deal of international attention and recognition,” Mr. Sluke explains.

Increasing importance of the underground sewage infrastructure

The event’s location in the center of Europe is one of the biggest advantages of the RO-KA-TECH. Focusing on the technologies and systems around the pipeline and sewer industry caused the successful establishment as a Know-how-hotspot. “Despite – or perhaps because of – the increasing online communication the personal contact between customers and suppliers is of a great value. This applies especially for our specialized field of the underground sewage infrastructure which is gaining more and more significance within decision-makers of public organizations and local authorities,” Mr. Sluke explains. “Growth rates are not yet very common within the trade fair sector – as much as that we are proud of the increase in exhibitors and our almost stable number of visitors. Since 2017 the data accuracy is guaranteed by the Society of Voluntary Control of Fair and Exhibition Statistics – Gesellschaft zur Freiwilligen Kontrolle von Messe- und Ausstellungszahlen (FKM).
