Strategic partnership

Dear readers of BFT International, I am delighted to be allowed to write the editorial for the BFT as a guest author. Just recently, Bauverlag – represented by its committed owner Michael Voss and by BFT editor-in-chief Silvio Schade, who has been well known in the industry for a long time – have agreed on a strategic partnership with our congress society FBF Betondienst.

This comprises on the one hand greater in-depth cooperation with our key congress BetonTage that, beginning in 2020 with its new four-day concept, will cover the entire value-added chain of building with structural precast elements, concrete goods and cast stone. All partners will be present, ranging from architecture to structural design, production in all sectors of the many-facetted segment of precast concrete products, and including building contractors. The strong brand BetonTage will form the nucleus and, together with many new partners, we will further develop the precast industry together with Bauverlag

In addition, we will establish a joint congress society that, in future, will represent the innovative precast construction method in the European hotspots, also extending beyond Germany. The starting shot will take place at the BIBM Congress 2020 from 6 to 8 May 2020 in Copenhagen. Denmark and all of Scandinavia are in the process of demonstrating how to build sustainably for today and tomorrow. With this strong partner, our expertise will link up with a strong communicative and a professionally specialized presence throughout all stages of building activities.

This all promises to be truly exciting, and we very much look forward to the joint entrepreneurial challenges to be encountered in the fascination of building with concrete.

Yours Ulrich Lotz
