The 38th International A+A Congress 2023 will take place in parallel to A+A from 24 to 27 October 2023. It is organised by the Basi – the Federal Association for Occupational Safety and Health. The congress takes up the future topics of digitalisation and sustainability and, as a leading international trade event, presents national and global political advances. This includes prevention strategies such as the "Vision Zero". In addition, occupational science findings from application-oriented research are presented and discussed. The WEARRACON EUROPE conference (25-26 October) for exoskeleton technology in cooperation with the EXOWORKATHLON life study (24-27 October) will ensure thematically coordinated optimal synergies and exciting new findings during the congress.
The congress builds an attractive bridge between innovative products and services as well as the expertise of company experts, scientific findings and best practice solutions. Furthermore, it offers all users, company stakeholders, consulting experts and occupational physicians a lively and innovative platform for high-quality prevention knowledge. In addition, it promotes the exchange of information between the state occupational health and safety authorities, the supervisory staff of the accident insurance institutions, the self-governing authorities and the workplace representative bodies, as well as politicians.
About the congress
The A+A Congress is the central joint event for occupational safety in Germany - parallel to the A+A trade fair, the world marketplace for products and services for personal protection, occupational safety and health at work. In 2021, under the most difficult corona conditions with an excellent protection concept, together with Messe Düsseldorf, around 1500 trade visitors (normally: around 5000) were attracted to the congress. These were mainly interested in the design of workplaces as well as safe and healthy mobile working. At the international events, the Vision Zero strategy against occupational accidents and diseases in particular attracted a wide audience.
