The 26th FOR ARCH event welcomed 830 exhibitors from 14 countries, and almost 75,000 visitors. Last year, the exhibitors’ interest in presentation at the trade fair was enormous from the very beginning. Statistical data indicate that the demand for exhibition area reflects the economic situation in the Czech Republic. While in previous years both the firms and individuals were postponing their capital investments, currently strong willingness of people to build again and therefore also to spend money can be seen. The largest building trade fair in the Czech Republic – FOR ARCH – was, however, not just about expositions. Visitors came there also to attend a rich accompanying programme and special conferences, lectures, seminars and workshops were prepared for them.
