For the last ten years now, the E/D/E industry meeting has turned the usual trade fair events on their heads with great success. Because the only issue here is communication. The unusual thing here is that the suppliers are not exhibitors. Instead, the members invite you to go and discuss matters with them.
With its concept, the industry meeting stands for minimum input with maximum benefits at the same time. Through the optimal date and time planning, contact with all important dialogue partners is possible over two days.
The E/D/E industry meeting takes place every year for the Structural and Furniture Fixtures sector, alternating between Leipzig (complete industry meeting) and Nuremburg (special industry meeting) and is very popular among members and suppliers.
The EBH is a union of about 100 specialist traders throughout the whole of Europe, which is based in Wuppertal. The objective of the association is to consolidate knowledge and services without impacting on the regional orientation of an individual company. The traders benefit directly from the synergies achieved. The close cooperation with leading brand manufacturers, the best branded products, extensive ranges with great depth of range, optimised warehousing with a high readiness to deliver and knowledge transfer into a network of specialists within the EBH are just some of the advantages.
Our ambitious project eDC (electronic data-center) reaches an important milestone with the market launch for the fixtures division. From the end of 2014 onwards, E/D/E members benefit from article master data in hitherto unknown quality.
More than 500,000 refined sets of data from around 130 suppliers will be available in the new industry standard eDC Cl@ss - and this alone in the fixtures range! All relevant specifications of a product are identified and assigned their corresponding values. Each individual article is thus endowed with a lot of clearly structured information.
