R+T - Trade Fair for Roller Shutters, Doors/Gates and Sun Protection

Extend worldwide networks, promote new technologies, exchange industry information: these are the objectives of R+T, International Trade Fair for Roller Shutters, Doors/Gates and Sun Protection, which takes place every three years. Featuring extensive actions and special events, the world's trade fair will be held for the first time at the New Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre from 10 to 14 February 2009. Just under 800 exhibitors from 40 countries will present their products, services and technical innovations on five successive days. The Innovation Prize will be presented on 10 February 2009, the first day of the trade fair. This renowned Prize will be awarded to the eleven best new developments in the industry.

The professional and promotional supporters of R+T 2009, i.e. the Federal Association for Manufacturers of Roller Shutters and Sun Protection and the National Federation of Door and Gate Manufacturers (BVT), will take part in the Marketplace of Associations along with the Association of German Textile Manufacturers and other organisations. During this event, exhibitors will have an opportunity to take action against counterfeit products with the assistance of a patent lawyer. Valuable information will also be provided on the energy-saving potential of sun protection systems. The individual associations will round off their services with different special events.

Young talents from roller shutter and sun protection craft trades will present their apprenticeship and master craftsman's pieces of work during a special show. Another highlight, which is being organised by Handwerk International Baden-Württemberg e.V., will be the b2fair cooperation bourse: this event will make it easier for exhibitors and visitors to contact new customers, business partners and suppliers from Germany and throughout the world.

The National Federation of Door and Gate Manufacturers is staging an industry meeting for the first time as well as a Door/Gate Forum relating to trends and standards on three days of the trade fair. Together with the European Solar Shading Organization (ESSO), the Association of German Textile Manufacturers is organising a workshop with energy efficiency as the main topic on 12 February 2009.

R+T will stage its now traditional Architects' Day on 11 and 13 February 2009 in cooperation with the Baden-Württemberg Chamber of Architects. First-class speakers will present forward-looking concepts during this event. Experts will also see other great things.

in addition to the world's largest awning on the Trade Fair Centre piazza, the results of the renowned architectural prize "Archiprix" will be displayed in a special exhibition. Highly informative forums and workshops with experts from industry and research will complete the world's leading trade fair for the roller shutter and door/gate industry.
