HANNOVER MESSE 2022 – Hannover, Germany 30 May – 2 June 2022

HANNOVER MESSE is the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology. The next edition runs from 30 May to 2 June 2022 in Hannover, Germany.  Its lead theme “Industrial Transformation” focuses on digitalization and sustainability and unites the exhibit categories «Automation, Motion & Drives», «Digital Ecosystems», «Energy Solutions», «Engineered Parts & Solutions», «Global Business & Markets» and «Future Hub». Leading topics include digital platforms, Industrie 4.0, IT security, CO2-neutral production, artificial intelligence, lightweight construction, and Logistics 4.0. Conferences and forums complement the program. Portugal is Partner Country in 2022.

 Digitalization and sustainability – these are the key topics at HANNOVER MESSE 2022. The world’s leading trade show for industrial technology thus promotes more climate protection in business and industry and clearly illustrates how digitalization, automation and regenerative energies can collectively contribute. After the long pandemic-induced break, HANNOVER MESSE runs in April 2022 as a face-to-face event.

 “In view of the current global political situation, the topics at HANNOVER MESSE are more relevant than ever,” reported Dr. Jochen Köckler, CEO of Deutsche Messe, at the HANNOVER MESSE preview event. “At the heart of the matter is how we can ensure security of supply and growth in a dynamically changing world – politically, environmentally and economically – while counteracting climate change. Innovative technologies will play a key role in this,” he added.

 Exhibiting companies include corporations like Siemens, Bosch, Schneider Electric, Schaeffler, Microsoft, SAP and Service Now, joined by numerous medium-sized industrial enterprises such as Beckhoff, Festo, Harting, Pepperl+Fuchs, Phoenix Contact, Wago and Ziehl-Abegg. Accompanying them are major research institutes like Fraunhofer and Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT) as well as roughly 100 startups that find HANNOVER MESSE an ideal platform for networking with industry.

 Other political dignitaries, such as Frans Timmermanns, Vice President of the European Commission, and Bettina Stark-Watzinger, Federal Minister of Education and Research, have also confirmed their attendance. This means that after a two-year “coronavirus break”, HANNOVER MESSE once again provides an international stage for economic policy discourse. According to Köckler, “At the end of May, the global industrial community will be looking to Hannover. This year in particular, HANNOVER MESSE 2022 can send economic policy signals and build bridges.”

In addition to the exhibits at the show, attendees can look forward to a first-rate supporting program. The four conference stages cover topics like automation, cloud and infrastructure, analytics and data management, digital platforms, robotics, IT security, artificial intelligence, renewable energies, green hydrogen, energy-efficient and CO2-neutral production, digital energy management, the circular economy and much more. The complete program will not only be available to visitors on-site, but will also stream simultaneously via the HANNOVER MESSE website –
