Integrated Industry - Discover Solutions

The age of Integrated Industry is standing at the door. Energy systems will be digitally controlled. Mature Industry 4.0 technologies are hitting the market. HANNOVER MESSE 2016 will drive this development even further - with a record number of examples of concrete applications and Partner Country USA.

Stage Topic Theme

"Integrated Industry - Discover Solutions” is the lead theme of HANNOVER MESSE 2016. "Integrated Industry is no longer a vision of the future. It is reality. Industry 4.0 is moving into more and more factories. Power grids will evolve into smart grids,” says Dr. Jochen Köckler, member of the managing board at Deutsche Messe.

The digitalization of factories and energy systems is the foremost topic at the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology. In Hannover, visitors from the manufacturing industries learn step by step how to convert their production plants into Industry 4.0 factories. Visitors from the energy industry discover technical solutions for intelligent energy systems.

"To remain competitive, companies must recognize and fully exploit the potential of digitalization. HANNOVER MESSE 2016 will show them how."

In recent years HANNOVER MESSE pioneered the Industry 4.0 era. Rarely has a technological development made such a profound impact so quickly. What previously was a vision is now a reality, ready for use in factories. HANNOVER MESSE 2016 will give this trend further momentum - not only with new technologies, but also with the new business models that they enable.

IIC is a globally active organization that promotes the development of the Industrial Internet of Things. Hence, all of the key players in industrial digitalization gather in Hannover: German companies with mechanical and electrical engineering expertise, leading U.S. software providers, and companies from China and Japan that advocate Integrated Industry from their side. This creates new partnerships, ideas and solutions along the way to Industry 4.0.
