The next Control will take place again from April 26 to 29, 2016 in Stuttgart.
At the same time the furniture testing sector met at the interzum in Cologne from May 5 to 8. Over 1,500 companies from 57 countries and over 57,500 trade visitors from 143 countries visited the fair in Cologne. The date for the next interzum has already been set: The Cologne trade fair will open its doors again for interzum May 16 to 19, 2017.
From the company's perspective, both trade fairs were well attended, and in addition to maintaining existing customer relationships numerous new contacts were made. The Willy competition was well accepted at the Control: visitors of the trade booth were able to demonstrate their skill on a tensile testing machine from Hegewald & Peschke.
