Present your company at our interactive trade exhibition

The trade exhibition that accompanies our PIAE congress has developed into one of the highlights of the event. 120 national and international exhibitors showcase innovative plastic technology solutions over two whole floors. The exhibition is one of the largest in the plastics in automotive technology sector!

Your benefits

  • Take part in designing a new PIAE concept and be a pioneer for new ideas
  • Improve your corporate image and boost your recognition
  • Maximum awareness before, during and after the event
  • Use opportunities to present innovations or market introductions
  • Engage with promising new clients and prospects
  • Make client contacts in the new Networking Area and maintain connections during the newly designed evening get-together
  • Take advantage of new worldwide markets thanks to more international participants

Present yourself at our next VDI PIAE congress and experience our innovative, revised event concept, which is based primarily on your feedback. Your efforts in completing our survey and your frank openness have provided the basis for our new orientation. In many telephone conversations with you, we’ve determined the key ideas for the blueprint of the new PIAE congress and the clear focus is on more space and more interactivity!

Our move to the ground floor and second level of the congress building gives us more space for exhibitor stands and interactive areas. On the ground floor, you’ll find a New Mobility Area, a job wall and a generous networking area with coffee, in addition to the trade exhibition spaces.

The new, modern second floor offers space for the entire PIAE specialist program. From 2019, this will include specialist presentations, an additional part of the exhibition, a new workshop zone, world cafés and the exciting hands-on space.

Take the opportunity to add further value for participants next to your exhibition stand

A new hands-on area will give participants the opportunity to touch and experience the materials you present and to try out concepts. The themes for this area will be published soon.

In the breaks between presentations, we offer all congress participants “guided tours” through the trade exhibition, specialized in the areas of interior, exterior and surface and raw materials. Take advantage of the opportunity and engage in targeted discussions with interested tour participants. You will be able to study the plastic components directly on vehicles in the newly designed auto salon (New Mobility Area), where current models and concept studies are showcased. In 2019, you’ll also be able to experience the new Future Zone, which will show new mobility concepts.

Participant and exhibitor feedback has shown that a job wall would be an exciting new benefit. Publish your vacancies and meet your potential candidates at set times.

Do you have exciting items that you’d like to encourage your participants to try? Would you like to present your specialized area to participants in a guided tour? Do you have an automotive concept that you’d like to present or do you have exciting job opportunities? Then get in touch with Sandra Klack directly at or 0211/6214-188 for more information.
