From Industrial Automation and MDA to IAMD

As from 2018 HANNOVER MESSE will be even stronger. The two leading trade fairs Industrial Automation and MDA will be amalgamated in order to create a new annual event: Integrated Automation, Motion & Drives (IAMD). IAMD will present the complete spectrum of industrial automation, IT, power transmission and fluid power technology. Thanks to its size and significance, IAMD will be the premier platform for investors and decision-makers.

2 are now 1

Leading exhibitors and trade associations initiated, co-developed and promoted this fundamental step in response to technological and market-oriented developments. The new IAMD is a one-of-a-kind trade fair for industrial automation, IT, power transmission and fluid technology.

Industrie 4.0 is changing Industries, Markets ... and Trade Fairs

Along the entire value chain, industrial sectors and systems are becoming increasingly integrated. The trend towards connectivity and built-in intelligence has resulted in ever-shorter innovation cycles. At the same time there is a growing demand for total solutions geared to practical operating requirements. HANNOVER MESSE has made structural changes in response to these developments. The amalgamation of Industrial Automation and MDA will create a global hotspot for smart manufacturing solutions designed for the factory of the future.

Merger driven by leading companies and major industry associations

Christian Kienzle, Chairman of the Fluid Power Association within VDMA (the German Engineering Federation) and CEO of the Argo-Hytos Group: Dr. Gunther Kegel, the head of German industry association ZVEI’s measurement technology and process automation division and Managing Director of Pepperl + Fuchs GmbH: Deutsche Messe Managing Board member Dr. Jochen Köckler:
"Transmission and fluid power systems play a key role in engine performance. With digitalization, these systems have now also become important data sources. Two years are an eternity in the age of digitalization. That’s why it’s important that we have the opportunity to put our latest solutions in front of customers without undue delay," "The automation industry’s sensor, control and networking products, systems and solutions are the ‘enablers’ of the fourth industrial revolution. And by bringing them together with electronic and mechanical drive systems under the Integrated Automation, Motion & Drives umbrella, Deutsche Messe has created a flagship fair that covers the entire factory shop floor and shows how it can be integrated into the Industry 4.0 environment." "The marketplace has changed,” reports . In the digital age, new products are reaching the market stage much more quickly, with the result that companies want to showcase them at shorter intervals. That’s why we’ve decided to feature transmission and fluid power technologies annually from 2018 on."
