Leading trade show Hannover Messe will focus on the transformation of industry through the advancement and adoption of digitalisation, automation, innovative technologies, and regenerative energy.

The event’s 2022 iteration, using the theme ‘Industrial Transformation’, will look at how these trends could help promote climate protection, in addition to showcasing industrial technology to achieve resource-efficient and climate-neutral production.

Various sectors of industry including electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, logistics, energy, and IT will present solutions that will help companies make the shift to a more resource and climate friendly industry.

The production of green hydrogen, in addition to advancing climate-neutral mobility will be a focus of the event.

With an apparently significant role to play in the future, digitalisation, including networking, data analytics, Internet of Things, platforms, artificial intelligence, and cyber security is seen as a necessary part of adapting to an industry that is undergoing a relatively unprecedented transformation.

“We are facing the greatest transformation since industrialisation – into resource saving, climate-neutral and sustainable production,” said Dr. Jochen Kockler, CEO, Deutsche Messe AG.

“All fields of technology must work together and initiate constructive communication between business, politics, science, and society.”

Due to interruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the show will be the first in-person event since 2019.

Stating that Hannover Messe brings together the ‘best of both worlds’, combining its physical presence with digital participation options, Kockler added, “This makes Hannover Messe even more valuable for participating exhibitors from all over the world, because they generate additional leads in the digital space.”

The event will take place in Hannover, Germany from 25th-29th April 2022.
