Vi­sit at a fair: Flot­te! Der Bran­chen­treff (Fleet! The in­dus­try mee­ting place)

Flot­te! Der Bran­chen­treff is a tra­de fair whe­re ma­nu­fac­tu­rers, im­porters, lea­sing com­pa­nies and ser­vice pro­vi­ders from the com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle fleet meet fleet de­cisi­on-ma­kers with fleets of va­rious si­zes. TecAlliance was also part of this fair, we re­pre­sen­ted the ex­hi­bi­tors as well as the fleet ow­ners. The pur­po­se is to get to know the ser­vices and pro­ducts of other com­pa­nies, but also to make new con­ta­cts. The fair took place from 03/21/18 to 03/22/18 at the Düs­sel­dorf Ex­hi­bi­ti­on Centre.
We five dual stu­dents, Anna-Lea­na, Mo­ritz, Ma­ria, Se­bas­ti­an and Jana also took the chan­ce and could be part of the fair on 03/22/18.
We ar­ri­ved the day be­fo­re, to start the next morning on time and fit. When we ar­ri­ved in Düs­sel­dorf, our sto­machs were grow­ling, which is why we vi­si­ted a re­stau­rant as soon as pos­si­ble. The next morning, we went to the fair, sin­ce it was the first time for the most of us to vi­sit such a fair, we were of cour­se very cu­rious and could hard­ly wait.
Af­ter we pi­cked up our ti­ckets at the ent­ran­ce, we plun­ged into the hust­le. We had many in­te­res­ting con­ver­sa­ti­ons, which en­ab­led us to gain a lot of new know­ledge, which we can cer­tain­ly bring to the com­pa­ny. But we were also able to make TecAlliance for the one or the other to a house­hold name.
Some of the ex­hi­bi­tors also gave in­te­res­ting pre­sen­ta­ti­ons, for ex­amp­le on the fu­ture of au­to­no­mous dri­ving, which will pro­bab­ly be­co­me a rea­li­ty in the near fu­ture. Even if, ac­cord­ing to the pre­sen­ter, it will still take some time in Ger­ma­ny, he has pre­dic­ted that au­to­no­mous dri­ving could be­co­me a rea­li­ty in the USA as ear­ly as 2022/2023, which me­ans that the­re will pro­bab­ly not even be a stee­ring wheel in the car.
In ad­di­ti­on to all the in­for­ma­ti­on we were able to collect, the phy­si­cal well-being was not ne­glec­ted, it ap­p­lied “ever­ything is in­clu­ded”, so an em­pty sto­mach had no chan­ce, from the hear­ty to the sweet crê­pe ever­ything was there.
Around 4 pm we made our way home tog­e­ther with two other col­leagues who were also at the fair.
In ge­ne­ral, we can say that it was de­fi­ni­te­ly worth it and we are re­al­ly gra­te­ful that this was made pos­si­ble for us.
