Almost 22,000 visitors from 98 countries attended the event / Energy
efficiency as the key topic / 435 exhibitors from 19 countries presented their
goods and services.
A large number of international exhibitors and visitors, a first-rate accompanying
programme and interesting conferences: R+T Asia (24 to 26 March 2015) once
again demonstrated this year its importance as Asia’s leading trade fair for roller
shutters, doors, gates and sun protection.
Almost 22,000 visitors from 98 countries attended the event. The majority of the
more than 5,300 international visitors came from other Asian countries. There was
a substantial increase in the number of visitors from Korea (+ 42%), Russia (+36%)
and Germany (+23%).
Focus on windows and sun protection
During the run-up to R+T Asia, the project managers enhanced the event concept
and included the new subject area of “windows”. The objective was to focus more
closely on the duo “windows and sun protection” and their practical combination
with a separate exhibition section. This objective was ultimately attained thanks to
the début of the “Window Zone” in the special show entitled “InnovAction area”
in which new products from the segments of windows and internal sun protection
were presented. Due to the higher demand for energy-efficient products and
combined solutions, R+T Asia devoted an area of 400 square metres to this topic.
Since the “InnovAction area“ proved to be a success this year, it will be enlarged
The International Window & Door Summit (IWDS), which was attended by
industrial experts from all over the world, was also crowned with success
again. Against the background of the highly topical key subject of “universal
design – doors/gates, windows and sun protection in the building shell”,
discussions were held regarding specific industry know-how and the latest trends
from market leaders. Through this interdisciplinary subject, the IWDS once again
reinforced its status as the industry meeting point with an international profile,
which brings the Chinese and the western market closer together.
The Chinese market attracts many industry leaders from throughout the world.
Somfy, Hörmann, Forest, Gale, Sambo, Glen Raven, Activa, Winplus, Doorhan,
Assa Abloy and many others have already exhibited at R+T Asia, thus gaining
