"In 2011, the fourth industrial revolution was proclaimed at HANNOVER MESSE. Since then the event has become a global hot spot and summit, not only for Industrie 4.0, but also for logistics. In this sector we have seen a parallel development with logistics serving as both a user and driver of Industrie 4.0. Bringing CeMAT and HANNOVER MESSE together at the same time and place is a clear demonstration of this trend. Anyone interested in moving forward must therefore be in Hannover in 2018 …"
