Innovation and networking at UGOL ROSII & MINING, NEDRA ROSSII and SAFETY & HEALTH 2021
Trade show trio reflects upswing in Russian mining industry
Mining remains an important growth engine of the Russian economy. The prospects for mining coal, ores and precious metals are good due to rising global demand for raw materials, despite the decline in production in Corona times and global economic instability. New investment projects are being implemented and supported by the government. Against the background of this growing demand, UGOL ROSII & MINING set a positive sign for the industry with the parallel trade fairs NEDRA ROSSII and SAFETY & HEALTH in Novokuznetsk from 01 to 04 June 2021.
Around 42,000 trade visitors came to the Kuzbasskaya Yamarka exhibition center to find out about innovations in mining equipment, materials handling, processing and materials handling (UGOL ROSII & MINING), ore extraction plants, processing and refining processes for metals and industrial minerals (NEDRA ROSSII), and safety technology and occupational health and safety (SAFETY & HEALTH). Now in its 29th edition, UGOL ROSII & MINING attracted 479 exhibitors from 13 countries, including industry leaders such as CFT, Famur, Marco, Schenck Process and Thiele.
Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf, drew a positive conclusion: "Our trade fair business is picking up again in challenging times in Russia. Exhibitors and visitors were almost unanimous in welcoming the personal reunion and business contacts at the trade shows. The joy could be felt in all exhibition halls. Considering the ongoing pandemic and travel restrictions, we are very pleased with the results. UGOL ROSII & MINING is simply indispensable for the Russian coal industry as a place-to-be." The exhibition halls showcased technological innovations, plant and equipment from a wide range of areas in the mining sector. The conferences and workshops that accompanied the trade shows also reflected the general upswing in the industry and invited a lively exchange among experts. Forward-looking technologies and digitalization in mining were discussed, but safety aspects and occupational health and safety were also high on the agenda.
In addition to Russian exhibitors and international companies from China, Canada, Great Britain and Poland, German companies also took advantage of the new start of the live fairs to show their colours in Russia. They were delighted to hold numerous talks at the joint stand, which was sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi). Exhibitors such as Bionic Production GmbH, EEP Elektro-Elektronik Pranjic GmbH, EMG Automation GmbH, EnviroChemie GmbH, HAVER NIAGARA GmbH, PLEUGER Industries GmbH or Röhrenwerk Kupferdreh Carl Hamm GmbH presented their solutions and product highlights to the Eastern European market in Hall 1 and met their customers in Novokuznetsk.
The trade fairs with conference program were organized by Messe Düsseldorf, Messe Düsseldorf Moscow and their partner Kuzbass Fair.
The date for the upcoming UGOL ROSII & MINING, NEDRA ROSSII and SAFETY & HEALTH has already been set: June 7-10, 2022 at the Kuzbass Fair Exhibition Center in Novokuznetsk.
