9th International Funeral and Cemetery Fair NECROEXPO
About the event
Accompanying the funeral industry for 15 years
Targi Kielce has been the funeral industry business facilitator for over 15 years; one of the most important events in this segment of the economy has been held at the Kielce expo.
Necroexpo brings together producers of coffins, urns, hearse dealers, as well as tombstones designers and producers. The event is held in alternating years - the previous edition brought together 105 companies from 11 countries from all corners of the world. The exhibition hosted over 1,500 business insiders.
The NECROEXPO International Funeral and Cemetery Fair is the showcase for funeral industry companies presenting their products. Targi Kielce is the display for urns, including state-of-the-art biodegradable urns and coffins. Producers of caravans and devices for cadaver cremation also most welcome. Following previous year’s example, the ninth NECROEXPO also features a fashion show for funeral parlours’ employees.
Accompanying events and business meetings
NECROEXPO also means a series of accompanying events; it has been the exhibition tradition to hold the Second Hand Hearse Market. This initiative aimed at supporting funeral industry companies that are business entrants also offers a great opportunity to buy a hearse without intermediaries. A hearse is, after all, the flag-ship of all funeral houses.
Floristic shows are also on the agenda of the Kielce expo. NECROEXPO exhibitors prepare funeral wreaths, bouquets, garlands and other floral decorations. Thus the expo is the best place to put the best foot forward and present capabilities, sign contracts for flowers delivery to funeral homes and chapels.
Training and meetings are also the trade show’s tradition - changes in the funeral law, the funeral industry marketing - these are just some of the topics discussed at the upcoming trade fair. It is worth adding that the seminars are conducted by professionals who boast many-year experience in running funeral parlours.
Cemeteries go digital
Digital services are becoming more and more popular among people associated with the funeral industry; virtual funeral books and records of cemetery occupation are just a few examples. The NECROEXPO exhibitors list includes companies that create portals which booking burial places possibility, ongoing monitoring of the graves and tombstones location, et.al. Land surveying services for cemeteries, including plots designation, are also very popular.
In the meantime, i.e.
The Necroexpo is held every other year, but the pandemic and related restrictions resulted in the event’s postponement from 2021 to June 2022. However, the trade show organisers’ calendar is already packed with industry meetings and training sessions.
Both Necroexpo exhibitors and visitors had the chance to meet virtually at the floristic training.
Kielce - the only place for this kind of expo
Targi Kielce has organised NECROEXPO for many years in cooperation with the Polish Funeral Chamber Association. The fact that the Kielce exhibition and congress centre has been selected as the presentation platform for the funeral industry products is supported not only by Targi Kielce’ experience. Targi Kielce is also a member of the World Organization of Funeral Operatives FIAT-IFTA.
The International Funeral and Cemetery Fair NECROEXPO is held from 3 to 5 June 2022.
