On September 28 and 29, around 180 participants from all over the globe came to Kehl am Rhein to experience the KRONEN Customer Day, the company’s in-house exhibition featuring live machine demonstrations, an expert forum, a factory tour and evening events.

KRONEN’s in-house exhibition with an expert forum, which took place on September 29, showcased a multitude of both new and proven solutions in an exhibition area covering an impressive 3,200 square meters. On the evening before the event, customers and partners were invited to attend the Evening with KRONEN with the presentation of the KRONEN Award, while an eventful Friday was brought to a close with an evening at the “Oktoberfest” celebrations at the Europa-Park in Rust. 

The Customer Day was preceded by a gathering over several days attended by KRONEN representatives from locations worldwide.

KRONEN GmbH has been hosting such events for customers and representatives since as early as 2008.

This year, around 180 participants from 44 different countries came to Kehl am Rhein to make the most of a jam-packed program of events.
