Live communication in the BFT industry

Dear readers, Germany currently ranks at the very top of all conference and congress destinations in Europe. The number of events held in 2018 was around 2.9 million; the number of participants amounted to 412 million. In the past decades, technical events have developed into an important economic sector with good perspectives for the future.

The personal encounter and active experience of a target group in meeting a manufacturer or a brand create emotions and offer excellent opportunities for developing a genuine and deep relationship. At such events, companies not only reach decision-makers on a personal level: they also find out much about them. Participants use conferences, congresses and forums as communication platforms for exchanging experiences and ideas.

We – your BFT editorial team – too would like to promote this industrial exchange with our technical forum “The perfect Mix – update for the right mix.” There is hardly a topic that is being so controversially discussed as mixing technology. We take this as an opportunity to examine the manufacturing process with practice and application orientation. The event kicks off on 19 November at the Borussia Park in Mönchengladbach, Germany. Two days later, on 21 November, the participants can meet for networking in Thurnau Castle. Registration is possible online at

We wish you much enjoyment in reading the current issue of BFT International and look forward to meeting you personally in Mönchengladbach or Thurnau.
