With 10,000 visitors, the first digitalBAU 2020 in Cologne exceeded expectations. For three days, Cologne was the hub for trends, product innovations and services relating to the digitization of the building industry. With a larger stand, dormakaba participated in this new dialogue platform for the construction industry and is satisfied with the response.
For example, the planning tools "BIM All Doors" and "dormakaba Orbit360", which provide architects and planners with comprehensive support in the planning of doors and access solutions, were very well received by the trade visitors. With the new digital planning portal "dormakaba Orbit360", architects can plan, manage and combine the various disciplines "at the door" more easily. The collaboration platform simplifies and optimizes the management of the door list and enables project-based communication with other parties involved in the construction. The networking and collaboration possibilities in particular attracted a great deal of attention.
Politicians also showed great interest in the digital transformation of the construction industry: Ina Scharrenbach, Minister for Homeland, Municipalities, Building and Equality of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, visited the dormakaba stand and was given a brief insight into the digital solutions.
Overall, dormakaba draws a positive conclusion. "The response of the trade visitors to our networked solutions, digital planning tools and our lectures was very good. We had many good, professionally constructive discussions and, above all, were able to initiate new contacts," explains Uwe Eisele, Marketing Manager Germany. Chief Technology Officer Dr. Andreas Häberli adds: "The trade fair was the next step for us on our way from a product vendor to a strategic business partner.”
