One week ago, the organiser of the Platformers’ Days announced that the event is rescheduled to autumn 2021. Nevertheless, they worked on many changes to fulfil the measures of hygiene and distance, they had to postpone the industry trade fair.
The new coronavirus regulation of the Baden-Württemberg state government that comes into force on 1 July 2020 prohibits events with more than 500 people until 31 October 2020. This therefore removes the legal basis on which Platformers’ Days could have taken place on the original dates. The CEO of “Messe Karlsruhe” as well as the project manager were still in hope that it could find place as they worked hard on new routines and measures to provide a full safety for visitors and exhibitors. They developed a smart and comprehensive safety and hygiene plan and presented it to the relevant authorities. However, they didn’t accept their plan.
Normally the event was scheduled on 18 and 19 September 2020. Now, instead of giving their debut in the new home in Karlsruhe this year, the new exact date is the 10 and 11 September 2021.
The fair, which takes place every two years, had 2,500 visitors in 2018. In addition, 100 exhibitors presented their products on an exhibition area of 10,000 m². We were looking forward to visit this meeting point for the mount access platform industry on German-speaking terrain! In particular as the Platformers’ Days are a lively demonstration fair for mobile companies and motorized access equipment.

Unfortunately, as more and more trade fairs get postponed or even cancelled there is only one more international show left we will take place this year: BAUMA CHINA.

Aerial platforms with and without outriggers: what are the differences?
Why do some vehicle-mounted aerial work platforms have outriggers and others do not? The presence or absence of an outrigger is a feature that is relevant for the safety of your operations at height and for other road users. Outriggers are mechanical devices that increase the stabilisation of the vehicle in order to improve the performance of a platform, such as the working outreach and/or the load carried in the basket. Here are some explanations that will help you understand the importance of equipping your vehicle with outriggers or not.
