Great atmosphere at the premiere HÜTTENTAG 2019 in Essen

The new HÜTTENTAG celebrated its premiere in Essen on November 7th, 2019.  "Preserving tradition, shaping the future" was the topic of the event that was organized in cooperation by DVS Media GmbH and Messe Essen GmbH.

More than 400 participants and over 30 exhibitors created a good atmosphere in Essen. Interesting keynotes, an informative panel discussion and current specialist lectures formed the framework for the successful first event. The highlight was the traditionally designed hut evening, which the participants used to exchange information and talk.

You can see some impressions here. In issue 12/2019 of STAHL + TECHNIK you will find a detailed follow-up report as well as further information and impressions from the event.

The specialist lectures at the event will be published promptly in STAHL + TECHNIK.
