Fensterbau Frontale, the successful trade show for windows, doors and façades, is getting ready for its anniversary year. From 21 to 24 March 2018 it will return to Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, where it has been held for the last 30 years. Following a record-breaking event with 110,581 visitors in 2016, preparations for the next round are now in full swing.

Interested companies that would still like to secure a place will get all the information they need at:

Fensterbau Frontale is the leading international show for windows, doors and façades. Every two years, window and façade manufacturers, carpenters, architects and the specialist trade descend on Nuremberg to find out about the latest profile systems, structural elements, glass in architecture, fixing equipment, safety equipment, machines, installations and much more. The exhibition is accompanied by a supporting programme. The floor plans are now online and provide an initial taste of what’s to come at the anniversary round of Fensterbau Frontale:

Forum with Lounge and Job Board – For the first time in 2018, NürnbergMesse is organising a forum in Hall 3A that will focus on current industry issues like digitalisation in the trades, building automation, safety and practical tips for tradespeople. Experts will explore these and other topics in TED-style presentations over the course of the trade show. The adjacent Fensterbau Frontale Lounge offers an opportunity to network and relax, while the Job Board brings together employers and potential recruits.

The Call for Papers for the Fensterbau Frontale Forum will be open until 5 February 2018. Interested speakers can propose a topic and apply for a slot at email
