Next trade fair is planned for January 2023, exhibitions center Wels. Let yourself be surprised!“

Ladies and gentlemen, 

Dear exhibitors!

The Covid-19 pandemic continues to keep Austria and Europe firmly under control. The new mutations and the problems of vaccination of the population ensure that the policy does not make any decisions on opening steps at events. It is therefore currently impossible to plan for a successful holding of a trade fair/conference.

The Executive Board of the Austrian Kachelofen Association has therefore once again dealt with the Covid-19 topic and, together with Messe Wels, decided to cancel KOK Austria 2021 after intensive discussion and consideration of all factors. The next KOK Austria will now take place at the end of January 2023.

We deeply regret this development, as we have recently noticed that there was great interest from both exhibitors and visitors for and great anticipation for this industry meeting.

We take this energy with us, are happy about the currently good economic development of the tiled stove industry and look forward to the KOK Austria 2023!

The trade fair –
We give you a new framework.

More than 110 exhibitors present the latest innovations in Wels every two years and use the perfect platform for personal exchange about current trends and new features. Here meet professionals from the following fields:

# Kachelofen

# Stove
# Slow heat release appliance
# Traditional tiled stove
# Oven and whole house heating system
# Tile

This also includes new designs, optimized heating technology and components such as technical solutions for the combustion air supply. In addition paviors and tilers as well as ceramists present their products and services.

Meeting place
As an important order and communication platform the KOK enables visitors comprehensive information about new features and product ranges. In addition, the perfect infrastructure for exhibitors also offers place for seminars, sales meetings or dealer events.
Conference & side events – that counts!

In addition to the well-proven technical conference, there is the famous stove-builder competition of young professionals taking place. VEUKO organizes the European Championship in tiled stove building. The popular exhibitor evening can of course be celebrated again on Wednesday evening.


“KOKtail evening” – the new business event

Let yourself be surprised by the new design of the proven evening event on Thursday! It will be the ideal combination of business and entertainment. We take care of the event and you take care of your guests!


Focus on young professionals

We are already thinking about your customers and employees of tomorrow. Quality, not quantity – We bring students from technical schools to Wels and involve young people in the trade fair through joint activities.

Silent Conference

Our new conference system is directly integrated in exhibition hall 20 and offers the opportunity to revolutionize the 60th technical conference for stove builders, paviors and tilers with a new format. This new idea therefore enables the focus on the lectures and presentations even during the ongoing trade fair.
