Renate Pilz, Owner and Chair of the Board of Management, Pilz GmbH & Co. KG, Ostfildern, Germany:
"HANNOVER MESSE is a fantastic platform for our company. For one thing, it offers a wealth of opportunities for highly promising meetings and dialogue on Industry 4.0. It is a chance to follow the evolution of the Industry 4.0 concept all the way through, from the initial idea to real-world applications. One aspect of HANNOVER MESSE that I particularly value is the opportunities it affords for sharing knowledge across multiple disciplines. Here in Hannover we can meet up with partners from industry, government and science and hold fruitful discussions with users of our technologies. This year, yet again, HANNOVER MESSE has made itself a focal point of international interest and attention. Given the large number of quality meetings and encounters we’re having here, this year’s HANNOVER MESSE is definitely a ‘gateway to the world’ for us."
Nikolaus Krüger, Corporate Director Sales, Member of the Executive Board, Endress+Hauser Management AG, Reinach, Switzerland:
"There’s no other market platform in the world that compares to HANNOVER MESSE. For us at Endress+Hauser, the fair is all about sharing knowledge, showcasing our innovations and positioning our brand in the market. HANNOVER MESSE provides a dynamic and vibrant setting in which to do this, a platform were innovation and efficiency are second nature. That shows us that the ‘Industry 4.0’ vision has now well and truly arrived as a top priority for industry. For our company, and indeed for Germany as an exporting nation, the government’s ‘Industry 4.0’ initiative has done more than merely provide genuine added value; it has created a competitive edge that we must now build on. The mechanics of achieving that are a core focus of the many quality meetings and encounters we are having here at HANNOVER MESSE."
