As a combined trade fair and event on further education, Didacta takes place annually at alternating locations in Cologne, Stuttgart or Hanover. It is the largest Education related event in Europe and one of the most important ones in the world. This year there were over 900 exhibitors from 53 countries as well as around 100.000 visitors. In addition to the exhibition, the event compromises about 1.400 forums, workshops, lectures, seminars, special events and podium discussions. The locations are divided per category (primary and secondary school, university, media…) – our booth is located in the Vocational Training area together with education players such as Festo, Lucas Nülle or Christiani.
Didacta is a must-attend date for educators, teachers, trainers and companies involved in the education sector. Seabery never misses the opportunity to exhibit there together with our Central Europe Partner Weldplus as the main target audience for us is the education community (teachers, heads of training, directors, etc.) that visits the show, specially coming from Germany, and also current customers that already use our solution and would like to see what’s coming next. Their feedback is really positive towards the new developments that we are bringing this year.
Furthermore Didacta is a great spot for education equipment distributors coming from all over the world to find out what are the latest trends and how technology evolves. This year we met with several companies from Kazakhstan, Turkey and China that we are in conversations with towards digitalizing welding training programs with Soldamatic in their countries.
Soldamatic never disappoints and it is always the star of the hall; people queue to weld on Augmented Reality, understand the technology, find out what’s new this year, hear stories of how we are using it all over the world to change the way that welders are trained towards a more motivating, efficient and safer method… Although tiring, it is quite rewarding to take part in such events as it gives a very good understanding of our potential and all the opportunities we will be able to take in the following years if we continue developing our solutions at this pace.
PS: Two years ago I remember that we spent half a day fixing some issues in the simulators. This year we had no issues Congrats to all the team!
