esco Again at ASTRAD

On 17 and 18 April 2013, the biggest Austrian municipal tradeshow, ASTRAD & AustroKommunal, is held at Wels - with esco participating again.

"Since 2009, the fair has increasingly become a complete-solutions-event for the whole municipal community," explains Matthias Stamm, Manager Marketing De-icing Products at esco. "This means that visitors find a large variety of providers and information offered - on the one hand manufacturers of products for public authorities, such as spreaders and other municipal vehicles, road signs, but also playground designs; and on the other hand service providers such as banks, insurance companies and waste management companies."

The number of visitors corroborates the tradeshow concept: Since 2007 the number almost tripled - in 2011 ASTRAD saw a total of about 3,400 trade visitors, with an increasing percentage also of international visitors. "This is another reason why ASTRAD is of growing interest to esco," Christian Winterhoff, Sales Manager Export, confirms. "More and more municipal decision-makers from Austria and also from the neighboring countries seek information about novelties and innovations in the areas winter services, road maintenance and communal issues. Here, in Wels, they can compare all offers and establish direct contact."
