This year, we are celebrating the 15th convention for car dismantlers. Once more, we will meet in the middle of Germany, at the Hessen hotel in Hohenroda, located close to all directions of highways and Frankfurt airport. The hotel boasts a substantial convention hall and an outside area for live demonstrations.

The convention offers the opportunity for dismantlers to gain knowledge and information about the newest tendencies in legal changes, upcoming technologies, better sales funnels, and of course, they will have the perfect opportunity to network.

There will be a combination of relevant lectures and an exhibitor’s area. This year, our keynote speaker, Guido Lipinski of BDSV, the German steel scrap association, will be the first to take to the floor. He will inform delegates about new activities and legal ambitions of the BDSV. 

The new challenges of high voltage batteries will be a big issue too. A report by a dismantler colleague will show the real-life challenges of this new technology. He will report on the unnoticed risks and obstacles and how to solve them. And providers of recovering HV battery equipment will share their knowledge. 

We also expect an official representative of the German authority for the environment to present. She will report on upcoming legislation regarding EU guidelines and German regulations. 

eBay will show new possibilities for selling parts, and SEDA will exhibit and provide a demonstration of their equipment for dismantlers outside.

Inside, many stakeholders in the recycling business will exhibit, including: 

  • Recyclers of catalytic converters and other fractions,
  • Remanufacturers who need used parts as well as equipment,
  • Buying and selling platforms,
  • Vehicle dismantling software companies,
  • And many more. 

Of course, the best part is the get-together in the hotel on the evening of 4 October in the Hessenhotel. Not only with there be further time to network, but we offer delicious food, drink and refreshments, and perhaps there will be an opportunity to dance!
