Bright, modern and inviting: this is how Richard Brink presented itself to countless visitors over 148 square metres of exhibition space at GaLaBau 2018.

Before an international audience

New products from Richard Brink debuted at GaLaBau 2018

Over the course of four days in mid-September, manufacturers and service providers presented their products and services at GaLaBau 2018. The leading trade fair in Europe once again attracted passionate gardeners and professional landscapers this year. Richard Brink GmbH & Co. KG kicked off its trade fair appearance with the presentation of not one but two new products. The flurry of interest, the many in-person professional meetings and the consistently good feedback these products generated confirm the company’s successful further development and expansion of its extensive product range.

From 12 to 15 September, Richard Brink could be found presenting its time-proven products and innovative new ideas over a space of 148 square metres at booth 4-521 in hall 4. And the space was certainly needed as this year’s trade fair saw an impressive 72,005 visitors, a significant increase from the previous GaLaBau two years prior. To the great delight of the metal products manufacturer, its innovative channels and drainage units, gratings and modular plant boxes enjoyed successful debuts and attracted a great deal of interest, generating a wealth of professional dialogue at the booth.

Innovation in twos

Richard Brink unveiled two product innovations in the form of its modular plant boxes from the ‘Line’ series and its polymer concrete channels and drainage units. With the addition of these products, the metal products manufacturer has expanded its already broad product range and underscored its significance as a problem-solver with a focus on further development.

Alongside the newly revealed products, the ‘Gemini Magna’ double-slit channel also proved particularly popular among visitors. Its channel body with removable stone inlay for easy inspection combines impressively high functionality with a premium, timeless design.

Inspirational highlight

Richard Brink’s product range could also be seen beyond its own booth. Its raised beds and ‘Line’ plant boxes also starred in the ‘Garten(T)Räume’ exhibition in hall 3A, where the German Association of Gardening, Landscaping and Recreation Construction (BGL) invited visitors to take inspiration from the industry’s wide-ranging services all in one place at this year’s trade fair highlight. Richard Brink contributed its premium products to the project, helping to make the special exhibition a real success.

Sparking global interest

During the trade fair, the primary focus was of course placed on speaking to professional visitors face-to-face. Members of staff from the metal products manufacturer were on hand to provide advice and support to interested visitors and decision-makers, and many meetings were had. The intensive exchange also made it possible to gain a number of new contacts, both domestic and international. ‘Exhibiting at trade fairs is a great chance to present our products, but is also a valuable opportunity to have exciting conversations with professionals from all over the world. We are pleased with the consistently positive feedback we’ve received and are coming away with lots of new ideas and suggestions for our future work,’ said Managing Director Stefan Brink, summarising GaLaBau 2018.

Members of staff from the metal products manufacturer were always happy to provide advice and support to interested visitors. The channels and drainage units made of polymer concrete generated a lot of interest and got people talking at the stand. The ‘Poly-Fortis’ series complements the company’s range of products in all standard sizes of the ‘Fortis’ concrete channel. The new addition appeals with its light weight, despite being able to withstand a weight load class of up to and including D 400.During the trade fair, the primary focus was placed on speaking to professional visitors in person from Germany and abroad about industry matters. Richard Brink presented itself here as a problem-solver that is happy to provide its customers with advice and support. The modular plant boxes from the ‘Line’ range proved sturdy and stylish in the area elaborately designed by the German Association of Gardening, Landscaping and Recreation Construction (BGL). Richard Brink took part in the special “Garten(T)Räume” exhibition, presenting a number of raised beds and plant boxes. Perfectly showcased, the products helped make this year's trade fair highlight a real success.
