Currently, high real estate investments are being made, which also lead to increased interest in the development of existing properties. The detection of possible pollutants as well as the evaluation and elimination play an important role. This was shown by the increased number of participants in DCONex 2020. New regulations, changed legal framework conditions or new findings regularly broaden the range of topics and thus appeal to a broader group of experts. The technical partners of DCONex, the Association for Pollutant Remediation (GVSS) and the Rudolf Müller Media Group ensure a highly topical congress program.
“The DCONex 2020 ends with another visitor record and if the rooms are as full as this year, this is confirmation for us as well as for the participants that our concept is correct and the industry is right here,” said Christoph Hohlweck, chairman of the GVSS.
The subject of pollutant management at DCONex was focused on two days in a technically bundled and competently illuminated manner. Around 550 participants came to Messe Essen for the specialist congress and the accompanying exhibition. Up-to-date knowledge, professional exchange and contacts with competent partners and service providers were the most important reasons for the conference participants to take part in DCONex.
Markus Langenbach, head of the program in the construction and expansion business area of the Rudolf Müller media group , is also pleased that the content of the event was well received: “Increasing number of participants, increasing number of exhibitors – DCONex 2020 was a thoroughly successful event for us. It was shown again that the tasks related to pollution control met with great interest in the industry. The view of those directly affected by a renovation, such as employees, tenants or building owners, was not missing at this year’s event and was well received by the participants. “
The professional depth of the event is particularly valued on the part of the congress participants and exhibitors, since they can draw targeted insights for their work. D ipl.-Geol. Andreas Feige-Munzig, BG BAU professional association of the construction industry, Munich: “From my point of view as a long-time participant and speaker, DCONex has developed into an important forum for the topics of the branch. It offers an ideal platform for exchange. With regard to the pressing problems in pollutant management, it would certainly be desirable to raise the awareness of other target groups for this topic and to invite them to a discussion. “
The DCONex offers a good opportunity for further and advanced training as well as for networking in the branch. Oliver Becker, Managing Director at Competenza, appreciates thisand long-time DCONex exhibitor, this platform, which is unique in Germany: “We have been with DCONex since the beginning. This has developed into an important and interesting congress. Awareness of the problem of pollutants, especially in the area of asbestos / PSF, has increased. This is shown above all by the national asbestos dialogue. DCONex reflects this and has grown accordingly in recent years, with all the important references to this topic. The specialist congress is characterized by the fact that it conveys the latest knowledge in a short and compact manner, has a good mix of exhibitors and thus maps the subject area centrally. A lot of important content, from the entire pollutant area, is highlighted here and at the end of every DCONex you drive back home motivated and well updated. “
The DCONex congress at Messe Essen gathers technical information, the latest findings and practical concepts relating to pollutants when building existing buildings. In the congress blocks, for example, the focus is on the results of the national asbestos dialogue, asbestos in plasters and fillers as well as the PCB or chlorine paraffin renovation. An important concern of the industry is the search for uniform standards for the exploration and remediation of pollutants, but also occupational safety, especially on construction sites, plays an important role. For the first time, the handling of climate-related damage in the existing buildings is also shown in a separate lecture block within the DCONex. The over 30 exhibitors at the accompanying trade exhibition provide materials and techniques for asbestos and contaminated site remediation, disposal,
The DCONex specialist congress has been taking place at Messe Essen since 2014 and has become an important national platform for the industry, with specialist sponsors being the GVSS association for pollutant remediation and the Rudolf Müller media group. Last year, around 500 congress participants from all over Germany as well as from Austria and Switzerland came to Essen for the annual industry meeting point and thus brought the congress a growth of around 60 percent. DCONex 2020 picks up on this point and continues to grow. In addition to the national experts, speakers from other European countries are also expected, which makes it clear that dealing with building pollutants is a topic that is also internationally recognized.
Further information and tickets for DCONex 2020 are available at www.dconex.de. Chambers of architects and engineers have agreed to be recognized as a further training event. There are discounted day tickets for visitors who only want to visit the exhibition and not the specialist congress.
The 8th DCONex on January 22 and 23, 2020 in Essen is the ideal meeting point for both specialists and interested parties who want to get a first overview of pollutant and contaminated site management. The wide range of topics enables a quick overview of the industry and targeted contacts to customers and potential clients.
The annual DCONex event schedule has proven itself, so many experts in the construction industry use the time at the beginning of the year to find out about current developments in pollutant management and to exchange information about work in the existing building stock. With Messe Essen, DCONex has found the ideal location, in the most populous federal state and in a core area for renovators and construction specialists.
