The previously announced new trade show for indoor and outdoor climbing industry, rope and belay technology and occupational safety, Vertical Pro, is to be held for the first time on Nov. 19 and 20 at Messe Friedrichshafen. Two trade visitor days will feature a host of product demonstrations as part of a diverse event program, as well as keynote speeches and workshops, which are also intended to create space for cross-industry exchange. In cooperation with the German Alpine Association (DAV) and the Halls & Walls event now under the Vertical Pro umbrella (previously Messe Nuremberg), the focus is on sports and leisure climbing, especially climbing equipment and route construction. The umbrella organization for aerial adventure parks and high ropes courses, IAPA (International Adventure Park Association), is the second conceptual partner of Vertical Pro and will open the trade show with an exciting insight into the latest developments in the industry. With the Berufsgenossenschaft der Bauwirtschaft (BG Bau; Professional association of the German construction industry) as well as other players from the field of rescue and aid organizations, further important players have announced their participation.
