COVID-19 has forced organisers to cancel the 2022 edition of the event. Instead, there is going to be a face-to-face edition from February 19th until February 23rd in 2024. Messe Stuttgart is confirmed to host the event and will feature strict COVID-19 prevention measures.


One exhibition will gather the experts in fields like gates and sun protection systems. The name of this trade fair is R + T, and it is a must-attend for the well-known manufacturers. First established in 1965, R + T has formed a close-knit community, built visibility and established itself as the main meeting point between supply and demand in the industry. This makes the decision to exhibit at the international trade fair a lot easier.

You are at the forefront of industry trends, whether that’s a brand-new innovation or a design trend that’s sweeping the world. The product portfolio accurately represents the entire value chain: roller blinds, coated textiles, burglary alarm installation, blinds, doors, control systems, security systems, engines and building parts.

R + T is also a barometer for the future – all you have to do is look at the 14 different innovation awards handed out in each edition.

  • Machinery
  • Interior construction
  • Roller shutters
  • Windows

Stuttgart, Germany is the official home base to R + T, which takes place once every three years. Each edition runs for a total of five days and is usually scheduled for the second half of February. Messe Stuttgart is both the venue and the official organiser, but R + T is made possible with the generous support of several institutions like BVT, ITRS and the German Association for Blinds and Sun Protection.

As of right now, there are no official working hours posted. Only trade visitors are given admission. Now onto commuting. If you’ve decided on a rented car, then you’ll find it very easy to arrive at the location. For those who don’t wish to drive, there are good connections to and from Stuttgart Airport. Once you’re in the city, you have your choice between buses and the suburban train system to make your journey quick.

What are people saying?

“The experience for 2018 was very good. We had for sure our dealers and architects so that people could test our products, but we also had colleagues of senior associations with whom we had an exchange of expertise and best practices. It was very, very testing for us. The possibility to meet people from most of the world is the best way to collect information and learn and grow in our market,” said Nicola Formarelli / ACMI

“We are satisfied a lot with R + T. The prospect of meeting a lot of prospective buyers for us is good. We have met with a lot of prospective clients from around the world.
