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. It’s easily the best platform to make purchases in your sector, which gives you an advantage when it comes to positioning yourself internationally. Plus, as part of the Hannover Messe trade show, you tap into a much larger audience. The costs associated with exhibiting pay themselves on the first day. Check out the most important statistics from the last live edition: 

  • 80,300 ft2 of exhibition space are dedicated;
  • 623 exhibitors showcase, out of which two-thirds come from outside Germany;
  • 71,000+ trade visitors are attending, out of which nearly a third come from outside Germany.

Industry Profile

CeMAT is among the youngest exhibitions to be in operation, only since 2005. It has found a lot of success in the fact it is co-held with another major trade fair in Hannover–the Hannover Messe whenever both are held in the same year. CeMAT used to run on a biennial basis, but has changed to an annual schedule as the trade fair further integrated into the Hannover Messe trade show. This permanent change ensures that exhibitors connect with more qualified sales leads and raise their profile globally. The advantages are plenty for all involved. 

CeMAT earned significant success right from its launch and today there are six satellite events in key international markets – China, Russia, Indonesia, Italy, Turkey and Australia. The trade fair is interested in the finer points in intralogistics and materials handling with a product portfolio that has logistics, warehousing, supply chain, IT & finance job functions. 

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, which have now undergone restructuring. Old favourites like the LOGISTICS 4.0 FORUM, LOGISTICS SOLUTIONS FORUM and YOUNG TECH ENTERPRISES have been absorbed and broadened. 

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.

CeMAT has a broad international appeal with a good representation of all major European markets and regions. Now that it has fully integrated into Hannover Messe, the types of visitors that attend have also expanded geographically. The trade fair sees visitors from all continents with Central and East Asia showing solid growth in recent years. 

Additional Value of Attending 

Exhibitors and trade visitors attending CeMAT have access to the greater support programme at HANNOVER MESSE. The exchange of knowledge and expertise remain central to the mission of the trade fair and the event programme targets all major sectors and topics of interest. Currently, there are five conference stages, which all feature scientists, business experts, engineers and policy makers. They are the MAIN STAGE (Business, Science and Politics), ENERGY 4.0 (Climate Neutrality), INDUSTRIE 4.0 (Digitalization Trends in the Industry), TECH TRANSFER (Industrial Research) and the STARTUP STAGE. 

If you’re looking to increase visibility for your brand and think you have the best innovative tech, then you should definitely sign up as a stop on the Guided Tours. Each tour has a duration of two hours and each company on the tour has 15 minutes to establish who they are, what they do and why they deserve visitors’ business. You can choose to be included in the Tour for Automation Experts, the Tour for Systems Integrators, Developers and Machine Manufacturers, the Tour for Automation, IT and Software Experts, and the Tour for Energy Managers and Energy Engineers.
