KOK Austria is ready for a surpriseThe next international exhibition for Kachelofen (tiled stoves) and ceramic tiles, KOK Austria, is going to take place from January, 25th – 27th, 2017 in Wels. New year, new style: The trade show will present itself in a new and different way. Some traditions will be discarded, others are going to stay the same. What remains, is the huge presentation of product innovations and services.
The main idea of the new exhibition concept is to focus the attention on the main hall for both evening events. The Technical Convention will remain in the separate sector A. The exhibitors evening on Wednesday draws many visitors to the main hall after 6 pm. Many companies offer food, drinks and music at their booth stands. This evening offers the possibility to exchange ideas in a relaxed setting.
Thursday night event is for free and traditional
This popular idea of a relaxed setting will be adopted to the organizers evening on Thursday. The event „Griaß Euch“ („Greetings to you“) will be transformed into a flexible catering and entertainment program. The new concept will replace the gala evening with seating plans and a fixed schedule. The quality is going to stay the same, there will be treats for ears, eyes and culinary delight. Furthermore we can guarentee you a special pleasant surprise….
One important point changes: The evening event is for free for all guests. Guests and visitors won’t need an extra ticket for the evening, the costs for the Thursday day pass will not increase.
Enjoy the experience of an entertaining, relaxing and popular evening, where everybody can wear a traditional costume as it is common practice in the sector. So don’t forget to pack your national or traditional costume for your trip to Wels!

Technical convention with practical orientation
Altough the 56th Technical Convention takes place in its usual place, there will be some new features. In the past the conference attendees wished for more pratical subjects. In 2017 we will present more examples from real life than „only“ guidelines. One of the main topics is going to be fire prevention in cooperation with external experts of the Institute for Fire Protection and Safety Research. The experts will present future issues as simple operations on a daily craft practice basis.
