After more than 18 months of delays and cancellations, I was happy to attend the A+A Trade Fair in Düsseldorf, Germany.
From the official A+A 2021 press release:
A+A 2021 – the leading International Trade Fair for Safety, Security and Health at Work – drew to a successful close after four days. 1,204 exhibitors from 56 nations and more than 25,000 trade visitors travelled to Düsseldorf, Germany to attend the sector’s most relevant trade fair. With these figures A+A – and the concurrently held International Congress for Occupational Safety and Occupational Medicine – again clearly reflected the significantly increased relevance of safety at the workplace.
To better understand how the COVID-19 pandemic affected the trade fair industry, here’s the press release for A+A 2019, one of the last trade fairs to be held before the pandemic hit us.
Registering 2,121 exhibitors from a total of 63 nations, occupying more than 78,000 square metres in ten exhibition halls for the first time, and over 73,000 trade visitors of whom one in two came from abroad, the world’s No. 1 trade fair safe and healthy working obtained record results in all disciplines.

Even so, I was happy to be at the trade fair and take some exhibitor photos. You can find a small gallery below:
