With Vertical Pro, Messe Friedrichshafen is launching a brand new annual trade show from November 2021. The focus of the event, a combination of trade show and symposium, will be on the topics of industrial climbing, working at height and occupational safety as well as rope and safety techniques. Vertical Pro uses realistic product presentations and tests as well as questions about cross-industry safety standards.

As part of the new event, Messe Friedrichshafen and its partner, the German Alpine Association (DAV), are also launching the climbing hall operators, Halls & Walls, well-known meeting. In the past, this has taken place in Nuremberg, is held purely digitally in 2020 and will be launched on Nov. 19-20, 2021 for the first time in Friedrichshafen.
