Hannover Messe began in 1947 and, more than 70 years later, has become one of the world’s largest trade fairs, typically hosting 6500 exhibits and 250,000 visitors per year.
The trade fair was first held in a factory building in Laatzen, South Hanover, in an arrangement with the British military. The show aimed at helping boost the post-war economy by highlighting the latest equipment and research. Known as Fischbrötchenmesse, the event has been held every year since with an increasing number of companies, exhibits, and visitors to West Germany.
This year’s convention is being hosted in the Hanover Fairground in Hanover, Germany and will run from April 1st to April 5th, 2019. The fair will showcase the latest technology and products from key areas of the industry. These technologies, products, and exhibits are being supplied by companies and research teams and cover research and development, industrial automation, IT, industrial supply, production technologies and services to energy and mobility technologies.
Hannover Messe is known to be an essential convention for new innovative businesses due to the high number of investors, journalists and key decision makers attending the event. In addition to this, networking has been a staple of the event since its inception.
The convention contains six trade shows hosted in one place and is home to a wide range of innovative products and services throughout the whole value chain, including automation and supplier solutions.
The themes of the six trade shows are:
- Integrated Energy
- Industrial Supply
- Research and Technology
- Digital Factory
Integrated Energy highlights technology for integrated energy systems, heating, and mobility. There has been a rising demand for flexible, intelligently designed power systems. Exhibits include key industry players who will discuss how to develop the future of charging infrastructure and how to significantly cut costs by using efficient energy systems, in a decentralized energy market.
It is known that suppliers are the most important driver of industrial digitization and therefore this trade show gives international suppliers a chance to exhibit a variety of solutions and products and present themselves as reliable partners. Key topics, such as smart systems, materials, processes, and lightweight construction will be found in this area of the convention.
Research and Technology
This trade fair will highlight the innovative ideas from scientists, engineers, and researchers as well as many possible applications. Exhibits from experts in areas of science and economics can provide a useful glimpse into the industries’ futures as well as what products to look out for.
Exhibits from companies such as Lupamat Makina, Puma Industrial, and Novair will be found in this trade show. ComVac is the leading industry event for compressed air and vacuum technologies, which are thought to be integral to the future of smart factories. Topics of particular interest in the year's exhibits are process automation, pneumatic systems, eco-friendly exhaust-air cleaning systems.
Integrating data processes which include all parts of the value chain are, often, a deciding factor in the ever-competitive manufacturing industry. In this trade show, IT solutions and data processing will be a core theme. In addition to this, the Digital Factory will exhibit new software for virtual product development, production planning and control, and predictive analysis, as well as solutions which allow for the secure distribution of mass data.
Integrated Automation, Motion, and Drives is a newly added trade fair to the Hannover Messe. In this trade fair, industrial automation, IT, power transmission and fluid power technology are covered from every angle. Leading mechanical and robotics companies are attending to enlighten the masses on the importance of integrated technologies.
