Hannover Messe and Industry 4.0: the winning combination

The world’s leading show on industrial technology, Hannover Messe 2017, will run from 24 to 28 April.

The main theme of this year’s edition, “Integrated Industry-Creating Value”, announces the current transition to digital future. The age of integrated industry is standing at the door, mature Industry 4.0 technologies are hitting the market, the number of innovative products is on the rise, and Hannover Messe, with over 400 examples of concrete and ready-to-use applications, is one of the best opportunities to showcase new products.

In the course of its 5 days, the show will have about 6,500 exhibitors from all over the world for an estimated total of over 200,000 qualified visitors, including decision-makers of the economy and of politics, willing to invest. Hannover Messe has always been considered also as an ideal place where to establish alliances and business contacts, bringing together no less than seven leading shows in the same location: Industrial Automation, MDA-Motion, Drive & Automation, Digital Factory, Energy, ComVac, Industrial Supply and Research & Technology.

After India and the USA, the Partner Country for 2017 is Poland: its development plan focuses on domestic reindustrialisation, on supporting innovative Polish companies and especially on opening up to foreign markets. Hannover Messe 2017 will be officially opened by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło.
