With attendance by 9,306 trade visitors and widespread general satisfaction with the results, SMART DOORS, the Doors and Automated Devices Exhibition, was held from the 25 to 28 February, and in just two editions it has become one of the main references for the sector. The trade fair, organised by IFEMA, brought together in Hall 6 at Feria de Madrid, the latest technological developments and innovation by 66 companies, leaders in the door and automated devices sector, gathering practically the entire market and consolidating its role as a platform for marketing and business opportunity generator for the industry.
As for the number of visitors, which grew by more than 23% compared to the first edition, we must highlight that 68.6% of the professionals came from outside of Madrid, which proves the wide scope of this event, mainly from Andalusia, Catalonia and Valencia.
8.5% of the total attendance were international visitors, with professionals attending from 30 countries, mainly from Portugal and Germany.
Trade Fair visitors discovered in person the latest in technology, security, accessibility, connectivity, energy efficiency, thermal and sound insulation and architectural design and integration. This all takes place at a time when these developments are considered essential in a constantly-evolving world, with a high potential for growth.
The commercial offer was also complemented by an interesting Technical Conference programme, with talks and events such as the presentation of the Report by the Ministry of Industry on CE Marking of commercial, industrial and garage doors; the 2020 Inspection plans and the result of the 2019 plans, and the certification system for installer and door maintenance companies by AENOR; maintenance of commercial, industrial and garage doors; the access of Fire Doors to new markets; the Aprimatic Automatic Door Administrator, etc.
SMART DOORS 2020 was held alongside SICUR, Spain’s international benchmark event for comprehensive security, which led to significant synergies for the professionals who are involved in both sectors.
