“The positive feedback from our customers has confirmed that the industry has been waiting for an interdisciplinary event like Vertical Pro,” adds project manager Dirk Heidrich. The German Alpine Association (DAV) and the International Adventure Park Association (IAPA) are convinced. Dr. Wolfgang Wabel, DAV mountaineering division explains: “The Vertical Pro was a real success. The atmosphere was excellent and we are very satisfied. The visitors were insiders and very knowledgeable about the subject. The concept of integrating the Halls & Walls into the Vertical Pro was an excellent decision. “Jochen Brischke, CEO of IAPA, adds:” The trade fair went very well for us. Those who visited our stand were very interested and showed a high level of professional interest.
The exhibitors were also satisfied: “I am really surprised by how the trade fair went, because I assumed that the current corona situation would have had fewer visitors. The integrated trade fair Halls & Walls had its regular audience on site. We as Petzl are 100 percent congruent with our products and our range, you can say – Vertical Pro is Petzl. We’ll be here in the future and try to get even more people excited about this concept. For a first-time event, the trade fair turned out really well! ”, Summarizes Christoph Driever, Country Manager Petzl Deutschland GmbH. Christian Kruck, Technical Sales DMM International Limited, also draws a positive conclusion: “There were more visitors at the trade fair than we expected due to the Corona. We actually only saw a professional audience here. I found the concept with a test area and specialist lectures to be absolutely necessary, otherwise the trade fair would only have been half as interesting. Another appearance next year is very likely, because we represent both the professional and climbing sectors and the trade fair is very interesting for us! “Sven Drangeid, Head of FISAT, sums up: Interest group for rope-assisted work techniques in educational work on the Vertical Pro was very good. A little more public traffic would have been desirable, but this is probably due to the current pandemic situation. It was a shame that many items on the program, such as lectures and demonstrations, took place at the same time, so that you couldn’t take everything with you that was of interest to you.
Up again with the Vertical Pro on November 25th and 26th, 2022 in Friedrichshafen.
