For over two decades now, Technology Days has been synonymous with hands-on technology and personal contact – both of which can only be experienced at a live, in-person event. To ensure it can deliver this unique industry event to the invited audience in a way that is Covid-secure, Arburg has decided to extend the Technology Days 2021, which had already been postponed until June: it will now run for six days in Lossburg, Germany, starting on 7 June and ending on 12 June.
“After such a long time with no in-person events, in June 2021 we want to once again introduce our customers to innovations and impressive applications for the plastic processing industry ‘in living colour’,” says Juliane Hehl, Managing Partner with responsibility for marketing. “Although we have pushed on with our hybrid and digital events really effectively over the past few months, personal contact with our customers is extremely important to us and that is not going to change. That’s why we are doing everything in our power to ensure our world-renowned and respected Technology Days will this year be a successful and exciting in-person event.”
Better conditions by the summer
Arburg Technology Days has been a constant in the plastics calendar since 1999. A decision was taken back in September 2020 that, in light of the on-going Covid pandemic, this year’s event would be pushed back from its traditional March slot to early summer. Nothing about the concept itself, which has been a successful one for more than 20 years, will change. Technology Days 2021 will once again be all about “hands-on technology combined with personal contact”. However, this year the invited audience will have to register in advance. Attendees will be separated into small groups, each with an individual advisor, who will take them on a tour round the company at a specific time. This system will make sure there will not be too many visitors on site at any one time. In making these plans, Arburg remains confident that the epidemiological outlook will have changed for the better by June 2021, backed up by the vaccination programme that is already underway.
A visit to Lossburg is worth it
Arburg takes its responsibility towards customers, partners and employees very seriously, and will put in place a consistent and well-proven safety and hygiene concept. The wide, open spaces at Arburg head office mean there is plenty of room to present a large number of interesting exhibits while maintaining the necessary distance. Machines, turnkey systems, and digital products and services are spread out throughout the Customer Center, the Arburg Prototyping Center, the Efficiency Arena, the Training Center and the assembly halls.
The Efficiency Arena, focusing on arburgGREENworld and arburgXworld, is sure to be very popular once again in 2021. A range of application examples relating to the circular economy, conservation of resources, digitalisation and the customer portal will be on show too.
