Turn of the tide

Dear Readers


2010 is the year of the largest events and fairs
supported by a generally optimistic mood both on the part of the exhibitors and the visitors. Thus, the bauma 2010, the first major event of this year, already marked a “Change in trend for the international construction machinery and equipment industry” (p. 19-20) even if the fair only really got going in the second half of the week because of the flight ban due to the volcanic ash cloud.


The POWTECH 2010 was also a success. It took place together with the TechnoPharm 2010 and the World Con-gress on Particle Technology (WCPT 6) in Nuremberg directly after the bauma 2010. In a special issue of
AT INTERNATIONAL in April we had already informed you in advance about this fair. Also here the organizers gave a positive report after the fair week. They emphasized the good atmosphere that became apparent not least in an increasing readiness to invest of the part of the specialist visitors.


A continuation of the new optimism can also be seen
as Hillhead 2010 approaches – the next major event
for mining and quarrying which will take place from 22 to
24 June 2010, and which had been postponed for one year
due to the economic and financial crisis. Many more than
400 companies have registered to present their latest ­developments and, amongst other things, with live demonstrations, to convince experts of the excellence of their products.


Will the positive development of the market continue? We will keep you informed!
