Exhibition opens

Fensterbau takes place this year; during March 18-21, architects, joiners, window and facade manufacturers and suppliers will be learning about fenestration innovations in Nuremberg, Germany.

Around 800 exhibitors will provide information on the latest profile systems, the use of glass in architecture, hardware, fixing equipment, security technology, machinery, equipment and more. An extensive lecture programme completes the fair.

Digitalisation will be one of the key themes. Satisfied customers are crucial to the business success of any skilled trade enterprise, which can be achieved with the help of skilled staff, efficient work processes, profit-driven business models and innovative products and services.

The digitalisation process makes the interaction of these success factors more transparent and easier than ever to plan and manage. But in what specific ways can the digital transformation be put into practice in trades-based businesses?

The newly created forum ‘Applied Digitalisation for Craftspeople’ provides the answers, the show’s organisers said.
