The carwash industry has chosen UNITI expo as new leading trade fair in Europe

Already in its first edition UNITI expo has established itself as the leading trade fair for the retail petroleum sector thanks to the large international participation. With an advanced concept the carwash industry could also be convinced for the upcoming event in June 2016. Leading manufacturers of carwash equipment, accessories and wash chemicals support UNITI expo as the new leading trade fair for Europe and plan their next presence for this special industry event:

Stephan Weber, Member of the Board of WashTec AG, the world’s largest manufacturer of vehicle washing equipment: “The overall positive experience we collected during our presence at UNITI expo 2014 as well as the industry focus and the conclusive concept of UNITI expo 2016 convinced us that this new event has a lot of potential. WashTec will be represented at UNITI expo 2016 with a 600 m² stand and the entire product range for petrol stations and professional carwash. In future, we will invite all of our key accounts and international distributors to UNITI expo where we will present the most important innovations and developments. At Automechanika 2016 we will focus on the market segment car dealership and garage.”

Otto Christ AG, one of the leading manufacturers in Europe also relies on UNITI expo. Member of the Board, Otto Christ: “The convincing concept, the new format, a modern trade fair location directly at the airport as well as the good experience as exhibitor in 2014 convinced us. Therefore, we have decided to further increase our presence in 2016. UNITI expo has potential and is supported by us. In Stuttgart, Christ will present the innovative product range to a large number of customers and partners from all over the world.”

As a manufacturer of carwashes in the premium segment, Holz Autowaschtechnik GmbH has also chosen UNITI expo as strategic trade fair and will therefore no longer exhibit at Automechanika 2016. Owner Wolfgang Holz to this decision: “We see UNITI expo with its consistent focus on the needs of the carwash industry as the new leading trade fair. Therefore, and because of our positive experience, we support UNITI expo 2016 with a significantly larger stand size compared to 2014.”

As one of the leading international manufacturers of cleaning and care products for the carwash and shop & convenience sector, SONAX has already used UNITI expo 2014 to present trends and innovations of the industry. Daniel Ott, Managing Director Marketing and Sales, explains how SONAX rates UNITI expo: “Our experience as an exhibitor at UNITI expo 2014 was very positive. The intense information exchange with petrol station operators around the carwash business was successful. Similarly positive are the impulses we could set with our competence regarding car care products in the shop & convenience sector. This is a business unit which is one of the most attractive revenue drivers at the petrol station, when properly implemented. In our view, the close contact between organisers and exhibitors – both before and after UNITI expo 2014 – was a success factor. We assume that the trade fair in 2016 will be even more tailored to the carwash industry and that the petrol station professionals will be shown very interesting ways of optimising the shop & convenience sector. Therefore, we are pleased to support UNITI expo 2016 as partner and exhibitor.”

For UNITI expo 2016 the carwash hall area is expected to be at least twice as large as in 2014. Bruno Boroewitsch, responsible for the sectors forecourt equipment, carwash and logistics: “In 2016 we focus on the carwash industry where we want to be as internationally as we were in the forecourt equipment sector in 2014. To reach our goal, we work hard on an attractive range of seminars as well as an extensive visitor marketing campaign all over the world. We do not only want to attract petrol station operators but also the dynamic market of the professional carwash. Even 15 months before the event, we recorded an increase by 40 % of the booked exhibition space compared to UNITI expo 2014.”

Elmar Kühn, Managing Director of UNITI-Kraftstoff GmbH adds: „With UNITI expo we wanted to create an event which is tailored to the needs and demands of the industry in the best possible way. Therefore, we have maintained a lively exchange with our exhibitors and their customers from the very beginning. Together with the carwash industry we are able to develop the perfect concept for this sector and implement it consistently.
