HK 2019, Cologne, Germany

We are getting ahead of ourselves a bit mentioning the October 2019 Heat Treat Exhibition in Cologne, Germany while we are at the Thermprocess show in Germany but October is not that far away. From the organizers of the event we have these notes.

75th HeatTreatmentCongress – Ticket shop launch; The ticket shop for HK 2019 is now online. All attendees can (re-)register on the HK website using their login data, and plan their HK visit.

MatchMaking; Our MatchMaking tool is the perfect way for you to prepare your visit. It enables you to systematically search for exhibitors and products, arrange appointments with exhibitors, bookmark favourites and presentations and create your own personal event timetable using the calendar tool.

Apps for Android and iOS; The updated app for Android and iOS can be downloaded from the store via the direct link on the website, giving all visitors on-site access from their mobile phone or tablet.

Congress highlights; The programme features two absolute highlights on Wednesday morning: The lecture by Dr Stefan Hock on HK’s significance & changes and the materials-science challenges of the future, and the plenary address by communications expert Isabel Garcia on the topic of ‘Thinking cleverly – communicating cleverly’. The conference will start with the basic seminar for professionals on the topic of ‘Case hardening – process and systems technology’, run by Dr Herwig Altena from Aichelin.

The online marketplace; Many exhibitors are already enjoying the features of the new HK website and posting their industry news, product presentations and job advertisements. You too can use this information platform; it’s accessible to all website visitors.

The exhibition; Very few exhibition spaces are still available for booking. A current hall plan with free booth spaces marked can be found at:

In the exclusive Newcomer area, first-time exhibitors can once again showcase their company for a total cost of EUR 3350. The premium-design ‘HK deluxe booths’ are also available again this year.
