INTERMAT – The long-awaited event is back on April 20. Held in Paris every three years, this international trade fair showcases machinery, technical equipment and construction materials. This year’s date is almost upon us, and with all the exciting news and events happening, we wanted to outline a brief overview of the must-sees at INTERMAT!

The INTERMAT Innovation Awards

Showcasing innovation! The INTERMAT Innovation award is given to products, materials, techniques and services based on their contribution to the progress of the construction industry. Of the greatest breakthroughs at the show, a panel of experts selects three "winners" - gold, silver and bronze medal – from each of the following categories:

  • Raw material extraction
  • Construction materials
  • Equipment and Components
  • Engineering & Systems
  • Digital Applications

The winners were unveiled last January, but you can find out more and see the award winning innovations live from their stands inside the show: the list is available on the INTERMAT website.

Paris DEMO

One of the main attractions at INTERMAT this year is Paris DEMO. A huge exhibition space, spanning over 30,000 square meters, located just outside the exhibition halls. In this giant arena, you can see all vehicles and machinery live in action and form your own idea about performance, technical advancement, ergonomics, and safety features.

World of Concrete Europe: Be Concrete!

The big news at INTERMAT 2015 is the World of Concrete Europe pavilion. This unique event will house an entire pavilion with concrete ideas along the entire supply chain. Not only will concrete related products be on display, you can also attend conferences and partake in activities that feature the latest innovations, options, maintenance, repairs, demolition tactics and recycling trends. A real event within an event that will have an outdoor demo area called “Concrete Demos” where tools, equipment and materials are tested on the spot.

Obviously, our BKT team could not miss this event! At our booth, you’ll find the following OTR tires on display: Earthmax SR 41 size 29.5 R 25, Airomax AM 27 size 445/95 R 25, Container King size 18.00-25 and Maglift size 7.00-12 (5.00).
