The E2 Forum Frankfurt is a conference and innovation forum for elevator and escalator technology. It takes place on 23 and 24 September 2020 (Wednesday and Thursday) in Forum on the exhibition grounds Messe Frankfurt. Held every two years, it acts as a platform for technological and topical discourse between the elevator and escalator industry and the decision-makers in building management and intelligent building services technology.
E2 Forum: Tailored concept and strong partners
Frankfurt am Main is the trade fair venue for intelligent building services technology. It hosts the leading trade fairs of Light + Building and ISH and so also enables exhibitors at the E2 Forum Frankfurt to reach those target groups involved especially in the planning and furbishing of modern buildings from the fields of architecture, technical building services planning, the housing industry, transport companies, airport operators together with technical experts from accredited inspection bodies.
Organised by Messe Frankfurt, the E2 Forum Frankfurt is supported by the German elevator and escalator trade association within VDMA (Association of German Machine and Plant Manufacturers) as an exclusive co-operating partner. Partnering the E2 Forum Frankfurt, the Elevators and Escalators Division of the VDMA strongly supports the innovative format for the sector to engage in an exchange of ideas across the industry spectrum with the decision-makers and trades involved in modern building services technology.
The E2 Forum Frankfurt is organised by Messe Frankfurt with the support of the German Elevators and Escalators Division of the VDMA (Association of German Machine and Plant Manufacturers). The division is responsible for the contextual and conceptual form of the conference element. It represents approx. 90 per cent of the German market for lifts, escalators and moving pavements. There are currently 750,000 elevator systems installed in Germany, of which some 640,000 are for carrying people. For escalators, the current figure is around 36,000 installed units. Turnover in the sector, which employs approximately 17,000 people, amounts to more than two billion euros.

The E2 Forum Frankfurt is a double plus for architects: The contents of the conference are worth further training points to the chambers of architects in six federal states. The Schleswig-Holstein State Chamber of Architects recognizes 12 and Baden-Wuerttemberg six teaching units. Architects in Hesse receive ten training points for their participation and in North Rhine-Westphalia six. The State Chambers of Architects in Brandenburg and Saxony recognise the participation in the E2 Forum Frankfurt Conference "Innovation, Digitisation and Sustainability in the Building of Tomorrow" as a further training measure.
