The ripples of change are spreading far and wide as the pace of innovation and development in the industrial sector moves into overdrive. “2014 will see a great shift towards automation in industrial manufacturing and the ongoing transformation of the world’s energy systems,” said Dr. Jochen Köckler, a member of the Managing Board of Deutsche Messe. “To remain competitive, companies need to make their manufacturing processes more efficient, and that means greater investment in state-of-the-art automation technology. Their competitiveness also hinges on access to a reliable, sustainable energy supply. The world’s leading providers of automation solutions and energy technology will be showcasing solutions to precisely these challenges at HANNOVER MESSE 2014.”

With Industrial Automation & IT, Energy & Environmental technology, Industrial Supply and R&D among its keynote themes, “Integrated Industry – NEXT STEPS” as its overarching motto and the Netherlands at center stage as its Partner Country, this year’s HANNOVER MESSE will be true to form as the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology and the No. 1 go-to event for international decision makers from the manufacturing and energy industries. Dr. Köckler: “A visit to HANNOVER MESSE is an absolute must for anyone in industry who wants to remain competitive. Hannover is one of the main stops along the road to the factory of the future.”

“HANNOVER MESSE’s leading position is reflected in the high number of exhibitor registrations confirmed to date. At this stage it seems that we will top the outstanding result achieved in 2012, which, with its even-year exhibition lineup, is the most recent directly comparable HANNOVER MESSE year,” Dr. Köckler added. HANNOVER MESSE 2012 featured 4,872 exhibitors from 69 nations.

The world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology is staged annually in Hannover, Germany. The next HANNOVER MESSE will run from 7 to 11 April 2014 and feature the Netherlands as its official Partner Country. The upcoming event will place a strong emphasis on Industrial Automation and IT, Energy and Environmental Technologies, Industrial Subcontracting, Production Engineering and Services and Research & Development.
