Lödige Industries: New sales director in Berlin
At Lödige Industries, Robert Lukoschek will with immediate effect be responsible for sales management in Berlin.
Well over 300 elevator companies have now registered for interlift, and a good 80 percent of the available space has been booked. This is reported by the interlift trade fair organizer AFAG. There will be a kind of digital preview at the originally planned date in October 2021.
According to the AFAG, the clear majority of the exhibitors welcome the later date of the trade fair. For this very reason, a whole series of companies are also tending to participate for the first time in the world's leading industry event.
With the new date (April 26 - 29, 2022), exhibitors will regain a high degree of planning security. On the other hand, travel restrictions will increasingly be eliminated worldwide, says AFAG: "A decisive factor for the vast majority of elevator companies and visitors involved." In addition, a very "discreet" hygiene concept can also be assumed at the interlift at this time.
Although interlift will not take place until six months later, an exciting preview of the world's leading trade fair for elevator technology will already be presented on the original date (October 19 - 22) as part of a digital event. "Because of the longer timeframe, industry insiders are expecting a large number of innovations at interlift", writes AFAG in a press release: "Once again, the focus is likely to be on digital solutions for a wide range of applications."
This was also decided by interlift organizer AFAG and the technical sponsor VFA-Interlift: After this one-time postponement, it's back to the usual date in October. This has already been fixed: interlift 2023 will take place from Tuesday, October 17 to Friday, October 20.

The postponement of the interlift has caused quite a stir. LIFTjournal talked to Henning Könicke, the managing director of the interlift organiser AFAG, about the background to this and the reactions of the industry.
No sooner has the Corona crisis possibly been overcome than there is another crisis for companies to overcome: the lift sector is also struggling mightily with material shortages and raw material and component prices, which in part are going through the roof.
