Roland Kaiser live on stage for the craft!
On two consecutive evenings, a MEGA party took place in the Altona Fischauktionshalle, where the crafts could deserve to celebrate themselves. In addition to various other show acts on 28 and 29 April, star guest Roland Kaiser thrilled around 4,000 painters, floor artists and plasterers, who were able to win one of the coveted tickets. The occasion for the two parties was the biennial MEGA exhibition.
During the day, trade fair and product innovations for the professional trades took place in the exhibition hall A1 on the Hamburger Fernsehturm. In the evening, the harbor was well-rehearsed. When the wholesaler MEGA eG organizes its big show and the legendary MEGA parties, the industry is numerous: around 100 suppliers exhibiting their latest products, 6.500 visitors to the fair, almost half of whom have used the travel program organized by MEGA. Craftsmen from all over Germany traveled here – because even though MEGA eG has its roots in Hamburg, it is active in Germany with about 120 locations in 14 federal states.
With a turnover of more than 18 million euros, the MEGA MESSE 2017 delivered a record result that is unparalleled in the industry. Under the motto “Trade for Crafting”, MEGA presented its extensive range of assortments and suppliers, from which the professional trade benefits like no other retailer. With her specially developed brands MEGA and Megatex, she once again underlined her role as a catalyst and innovation driver in the service of the craft trades. Special attention was therefore also given to the product novelties of precisely these brands.
The presentation of the new MEGA portal including the online shop, which will be available to all craft professionals in a few weeks, also met with great interest. Information on products, material orders and delivery status can then be retrieved easily at any time.
Another industry highlight was the preliminary decision of the national team of stucco workers: before the eyes of the trade fair visitors, the young top performers went to work to convince the jury with their outstanding craftsmanship. In the end, the work of Lukas Kirschmer from Blaubeuren (Baden-Württemberg) was judged by the jury to be the best performance. Thus, Lukas Kirschmer will travel to Abu Dhabi for this year’s WorldSkills in October in order to actively represent the stucco profession in Germany.
Once again, the MEGA MESSE was a familiar meeting place for the industry, bridging the boundaries between different branches of crafts. The next MEGA FAIR will take place in the spring of 2019.
