“The economic situation in mechanical engineering is getting worse. That makes it even more important that HANNOVER MESSE is and remains a beacon for the industry and its power of innovation,” says Thilo Brodtmann, chief executive of VDMA. That’s why the association explicitly welcomes the new layout of HANNOVER MESSE .

HANNOVER MESSE 2020 addresses future-oriented themes for machine and plant construction in six exhibition areas: Digital Ecosystems presents software for the digital transformation and discusses AI, machine learning, digital twins and IT security. At Automation, Motion & Drives , robotics, sensor technology, digital platforms and 5G play major roles. Logistics gets to the bottom of smart supply chains. Additive manufacturing, lightweight construction and new materials form the center of Engineered Parts & Solutions. At the Future Hub , startups and researchers open windows to the industrial world of tomorrow and beyond. Energy Solutions has an eye on efficient, secure, and climate-friendly industrial power supply, along with e-mobility infrastructure and new mobility concepts.

At the same time, Global Business & Markets , Europe’s largest foreign trade platform, shines a light on mechanical engineering’s key business markets.
