15. International Funeral Trade Fair
For almost 70 years now, the BEFA FORUM has been exhibiting at the congress center in Düsseldorf. Originally with a cycle of every five years and later every four years, today the BEFA FORUM is one of the largest and leading international funeral trade fairs worldwide, with about 200 exhibitors covering approx. 25,000 m² exhibition space. With about 900,000 deaths, Germany is the largest single burial market in Europe.
National and international exhibitors from five continents offer a vast spectrum of sector information and dialogues. With a focus on the future of our sector, current topics and developments in the market will be debated and discussed, along with various possibilities for networking. Practical workshops provide interesting insights into novelties and the newest procedures and processes in the funeral sector. Almost 12,000 national and international professionals attended the BEFA FORUM in 2014 and we expect the same number in 2018.
As the capital of North Rhine Westphalia, Düsseldorf has much to offer. The Königsallee, one of Germany's highest-quality shopping boulevards, as well as the numerous breweries and restaurants in the Old Town of Düsseldorf, attract many international visitors to the Rhine metropolis.
We look forward to your visit at the BEFA FORUM 2018 on May 10-12, 2018 in Düsseldorf!
