  • 6500+ international exhibitors;
  • 220,000+ international trade visitors;
  • 6.5 million business contacts;
  • 1400 events in total. 

All this comes down to a smart business move on your part. An exhibition booth opens you to an incredible audience that’s invested in not only learning about innovations but also purchasing! 

Industry Relevance 

HANNOVER MESSE has been running for over half a decade, with the very first edition dating to 1947. Naturally, this gives the trade show clout and respectability, as you’re participating in a show that has real history and a brand that carries weight. What’s also interesting is that the annual event welcomes both industry insiders and members of the public. This means you can get direct feedback from end consumers on your products. 

Speaking of products, HANNOVER MESSE has a wide range of product line-ups. Such include building automation & technology, coating materials, air & gas compressors. Right now with the broader trends of digitalisation and automation transforming the landscape, scheduling software, motion and drives, and digital ecosystems are also gaining traction and popularity. The innovation hub has everything you could ever discover from innovative refrigeration technology, compressed air technology, and micro-actuator systems to factory equipment and environmental technology. 

Who Are You Going to Meet 

Attracted to what HANNOVER MESSE has to offer are representatives from mechanical and plant engineering, the process industry, product development and design, energy-intensive enterprises, energy providers and marketers, automotive and supply industry. Exhibitors come from a total of 75 countries, with Germany leading the numbers with 40%, while the remaining 60% include the majority of European countries that are in the European Union. The distribution amongst visitors is more in favour of German visitors, with only 70,000 visitors in total coming from outside Germany. This is a normal trend considering the fair is open to the public and most of those numbers are made up of locals. 

Right now, hydrogen and fuel cells dominate the conversation and emerge as powerful markets. To this end, some industry leaders will present the work they’ve done and share their advancements with the world. Iberdrola, Saint Gobain, Emerson, ElringKlinger, Plug Power, Siemens, Phoenix Contact, Enapter, Bosch, Hexagon Purus, Nel Hydrogen, Hydrogenious and GP Joule are some of the juggernauts you’ll encounter at HANNOVER MESSE. 

Additional Value of Attending 

Another way for exhibitors to win over potential business partners is to participate in the Guided Tours, which run for two hours. During those hours, companies receive 15 minutes to deliver their pitch and best present their products. Currently, there are four main types of guided tours – Tour for Automation Experts, Tour for Systems Integrators, Developers and Machine Manufacturers, Tour for Automation, IT and Software Experts, Tour for Energy Managers and Energy Engineers. You can earn the most attention without having to leave your exhibitor booth at all. 

HANNOVER MESSE values the exchange of knowledge and sharing of expertise. This is why it boasts an incredible support programme. No matter what area you operate in, there’s a lecture or a discussion that meets your interests. Five conference stages have been set – the MAIN STAGE (Business, Science and Politics), INDUSTRIE 4.0 (Digitalization Trends in the Industry), ENERGY 4.0 (Climate Neutrality), TECH TRANSFER (Industrial Research) and the STARTUP STAGE. Each stage lines up scientists, business experts, engineers and policy makers to tackle the most pressing challenges facing the industry and share new opportunities. 

It can’t be all about business! Let’s have some fun. The Opening Ceremony is one big party you don’t want to miss and so is the Night of Innovations.
