Industry is in the starting blocks 

In less than three months it will finally be time again for VALVE WORLD EXPO, the leading international trade fair for industrial valves and fittings, to be held from 29 November to 1 December 2022 in Halls 1 and 3 at Düsseldorf Fairgrounds. 

After four years of interruption due to Corona, an industry full of innovations presents itself. So far (as of August), 336 exhibitors from 28 countries have registered. They present their technological highlights in more than 10,000 square metres. Companies from Italy, Spain, France, Turkey, the Netherlands and Great Britain are strongly represented. Overseas exhibitors come from the USA, India, Taiwan and Korea, and to date 86 companies from Germany will take part in the fair. 

The five exhibitors Velan, Emerson, Neway, MRC Global and KITZ are sponsors of VALVE WORLD EXPO, and Zwick Armaturen is also taking over the entire lanyard sponsorship.  


For the first time, the Valve Star Award will be presented during the trade fair. Organised by Vulkan-Verlag, exhibitors can submit their products in a profile in the run-up to the fair and thus nominate them for participation in the Valve Star Award. Votes can then be cast online. The winners will be awarded during the trade fair in Düsseldorf in the four categories of valves, actuators, sealing technology and the special category Industry 4.0/Automation. 

For the first time, Vulkan-Verlag will be holding a free, German-language Expo Forum on the first two days of the fair (29.11. and 1.12.) in Hall 3. On the third day of the fair, KCI will take over with an English-language theme setting. 

Another new addition to the fair is the ecoMetal-trails, guided tours to exhibitors who have taken up the theme of sustainability. Exhibitors who produce in their plants in a particularly energy-efficient, resource-saving and ecologically sensitive manner can apply in advance to participate in the ecoMetal-trails at Messe Düsseldorf.
