BLOBEL concepts attract a great deal of interest from trade professionals.
Entrance to the ‘Expoconstrucción Expodiseño 2015’ trade fair in Colombia

The largest construction industry fair for the Pacific Region, Central America and the Caribbean was held for the 13th time in Colombia. It covers virtually everything, from civil and structural engineering, architecture, urban development and design to interior decoration and furniture.

BLOBEL was represented in Bogotá for the first time, at a shared Bavarian stand that was part of the German stand organised by the Chamber of Foreign Trade. We have been receiving more and more inquiries about flood barriers from this part of the world and are currently installing a number of BLOBEL containment barriers in Medellín – so the fair was a welcome opportunity to get better acquainted with this new market.

For six days, a steady flow of visitors streamed through the halls from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. It was a long and busy week, but worth it for the remarkable interest shown and the high quality of the contacts made. We were able, for example, to hold promising technical discussions about our containment and flood protection systems with a good many engineers and staff members from various planning offices.
