The preparations for the UHB lasted more than one year, on November 10th it was time to open the gates of the denkmal 2016 and the UHB was there with a broad mass presence. Members' exhibition stands, an exhibition café on historical garden furniture and a daily auction of 60 historical objects from the UHB members' stands provided a round picture.
The exhibition stands of the members
Six members of the UHB presented themselves to the specialist audience on a total area of 130 sqm:
- Dinkholder Mühle Zmelty
- Historische Bauelemente Elias
- Historische Baustoffe Ostalb
- Knapp historische Baustoffe
- Langenbeck historische Türen
- Rupp historische Baustoffe
On each of the three days of the fair, 60 historical objects from the members' fund were auctioned off. Supported by employees from various member companies, the managing director of the UHB, H. Christoph Freudenberger, brought the objects to the women or men. In particular around the objects without limit into the running gone objects relax again and again active bidder duels.
The accounting of the auction
Immediately after the auction, the surcharges were settled with the successful buyers. In the lively exchange between buyers and sellers not only the modalities of payment, but also of transport were regulated.
Every three days the Messecafé was well attended with its historic garden furniture, which went under the hammer on the third and last day of the fair as part of the auction. Visitors were able to try out the furniture over a cup of delicious coffee in the midst of interesting decorative objects for outdoor use.
The Auction Exhibits
As two years ago, the UHB again had a large area available for the exhibition of the objects. About 120 objects gathered on a lovingly arranged area, which was also very well cared for by the members of the UHB.
