HK 2020 Exhibition October 21-22/2020

It breaks our hearts that we not be able to attend HK 2020, the annual German heat treatment exhibition held the last few years in Cologne. The reason of course is COVID-19 and bearing that in mind we now have some details about the HK2020 “Virtual” show. We reminisced about the show last year and came up with this photo of the “Wickert” booth which we visited last October.

“21 – 22 October 2020 online. This year, the HK of AWT is again the leading event for developments in materials technology and the communication platform for the heat treatment industry and its suppliers. At the beginning of August the new website of HK went online. The scientific programme of the HK 2020 is more open to new materials and fields of application and at the same time more practice-oriented. On the first day, three papers on new material developments will be presented and there will be a lecture on creative techniques from the AWT’s “Trendscouting” expert committee. On the second day the focus will be on current topics in the practice of hardening shops. Keywords: CQI-9, energy efficiency and operational safety in hardening plants.

This year, a virtual trade fair platform will be offered on the website for the first time. Exhibitors of the HK can publish their product
presentations, image brochures, press releases and videos there and present in this way their news to the heat treatment community. A chat tool and video call will be activated during the congress time. The website is public and free, there are no barriers due to logins. AWT offers attractive participation fees for the online-conference, especially for groups. At the end of September, the programme booklet will also be available to the public as an e-paper on the website. Detailed information and registration at For more information about the conference and the booking of virtual stands please contact Ms. Sonja Mueller by [email protected].”
