The fair will celebrate a quarter of a century!
Celebrating 25th anniversary of the Roof-Solar-Craft Fair (original name Roofs Prague, Solar Prague, Craft Prague)
The fair has gradually developed from humble beginnings into a key and respected event in the industry, connecting experts, craftsmen and enthusiasts of the roofing world. Over the course of a quarter of a century, we have together gone through an incredible journey of continuous development and improvement of the trade fair, which today presents the best in roofing and energy saving. It is also an indispensable source of information for professionals and the general public.
We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the fair – exhibitors, partners, visitors and all fair supporters. Thank you for 25 years of mutual inspiration and cooperation.
We look forward to future editions, during which we want to continue to bring the best roofing, solar and other energy-saving solutions and together push the imaginary quality bar of the fair to new heights.
