The product spectrum at the sector’s leading international exhibition reflects the worldwide innovations in windows, doors and facades.Some 99,000 trade visitors and well over 1,200 exhibitors made fensterbau/frontale in combination with HOLZ-HANDWERK an impressive highlight for the industry in 2012. The new hall 3A will provide even more display space in 2014.

The wish for more sustainability and comfort continues to drive innovation in the window, door and facade construction sector. Experts meet at fensterbau/frontale to discuss how aesthetic and design trends can be reconciled with energy-efficient building.
Elke Harreiß, Director Exhibitions fensterbau/frontale at NürnbergMesse, summarizes the last event in 2012: “The trade fair regularly gets top marks from both exhibitors and visitors. 97 per cent of the companies in 2012 welcomed international visitors to their stands, mainly from Germany’s immediate neighbouring countries, followed by Italy, Great Britain, Russia and Turkey and countries in all the other continents. However, fensterbau/frontale not only stands out for its international mix, but for the accurate combination of supply and demand too: “Well over 90 per cent of the companies involved said they had reached their most important target groups at fensterbau/frontale, and nine out of ten exhibitors showed a new product or innovation in Nürnberg,” says Harreiß.
The visitors at the coming edition can also look forward again to the latest know-how on the main topics of sustainability, comfort, automation and energy efficiency. “For anyone wanting to get to know the innovations on the international market in compact form in one place, there is simply no way round the display of products from the almost 800 fensterbau/frontale exhibitors in Nürnberg,” says Harreiß.
