Covid-19 Event Update

CeMAT, which has been assimilated by Hannover Messe, will return in May and June 2022 as a hybrid edition. Because of the ongoing pandemic, the hybrid event has been postponed. After extensive discussions with the exhibitor advisory committee as well as the partner organisations VDMA and ZVEI, the event has been rescheduled. Hannover Messe 2022 will return to Messe Hannover with a new concept from May 30th to June 2nd, 2022. The next edition will be held under strict COVID-19 safety measures. Among the implemented measures will be a rigorous 3G entrance policy and social distancing regulations. Before entering the venue, attendees must show their immunisation passports, proof of recovery, or negative test results. They also have to maintain a social distance of 1.5 metres. The trade show will feature new digital components. These will allow exhibitors and professionals who are unable to attend in-person to take part in the event. "Industrial Transformation" will be the central theme. Digitalisation and industry decarbonisation will be the main themes.

Why Your Visit Is Worth It

One reason to attend CeMAT is the sheer volume of information and line-up of machinery that’s going to be on display, but if you need more, here are some statistics to make you invested:

  • 80,300 square feet of exhibition space are dedicated;
  • 623 exhibitors showcase, out of which two thirds come from outside Germany;
  • 71,000+ trade visitors are attending, out which nearly a third come from outside Germany.

Industry Profile

CeMAT is among the youngest exhibitions to be in operation only since 2005, but has found a lot of success in the fact it’s co-held with another major trade fair in Hannover – the Hannover Messe, whenever both are held in the same year. CeMATT runs on a biennial basis and admits only trade visitors with direct experience in the intralogistics industry. The brand has been successful enough to launch satellite events in four other locations – China, India, Russia and South America. Most of the focus falls squarely on the concept of Industry 4.0 as can be seen in the programming. There are guided tours along with multiple events such as the LOGISTICS 4.0 FORUM, LOGISTICS SOLUTIONS FORUM and YOUNG TECH ENTERPRISES.

Who Are You Going to Meet

The short answer to this question is everyone – CeMAT has a serious role to play within the broad logistics industry as you can see how the show space is divided into several themed areas. These include Pick & Pack, Move & Lift, Store & Load, Logistics IT, Manage & Service. In this sense, exhibitors represent a variety of backgrounds from manufacturers and service providers to tech companies and software developers. The entire value chain is represented auto ID/RFID, complete logistics services, FTS, hoists, cranes, e-logistics services, industrial doors, industrial gates, order picking technology, packaging technology, pallets and port handling equipment. The products also determine the visitors – representatives of transport firms, postal services, e-commerce giants and wholesalers, importers and exporters.
