The GesamtVerband OfenBau is represented at the World of Fireplaces with an exhibition stand and is active at the Fireplace Hub: among other things, specialist presentations are planned. Overall, the Fireplace Hub is a valuable portal for knowledge transfer and networking in the industry: Here, decision-makers from the business and association sectors enter into dialogue with trade visitors.


Discussions at eye level

Trendfairs welcomed selected companies to Munich for the round table on July 19, 2022

The idea of the "Round Table" dates back to around 1927. The Round Table expects from its members ("Tabler") open-mindedness and interest towards traditional as well as new ideas and developments according to the motto Adapt, Adjust, Improve. The motto comes from a speech by the Prince of Wales Edward VIII, who in 1927 used these words to encourage young men to adopt proven solutions and to develop and improve them in response to the changing circumstances of the present and the future.
