The biggest transformation since industrialization

Deutsche Messe AG - 30/05/2022

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 2022 as a face-to-face event.

Hannover Messe 2022 "We are facing the greatest transformation since industrialization –into resource-saving, climate-neutral and sustainable production," said Dr. Jochen Köckler, CEO of Deutsche Messe AG. "Digitalization, automation, innovative technologies, and regenerative energy: These existing trends are the dynamic drivers for achieving climate goals. All fields of technology must work together and initiate constructive communication between business, politics, science, and society. With its global and thematic focus, HANNOVER MESSE 2022 provides the ideal platform for this and once again enables face-to-face contact."

Under the lead theme "Industrial Transformation", leading global companies from the electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, logistics, energy, and IT and software sectors show how to shift successfully to digitalized, resource-efficient and climate-neutral production. By demonstrating concrete solutions, leading figures from science and business show how to master such a historic feat of strength.

For example, companies from the energy industry show how to produce green hydrogen efficiently as well as its potential for energy-intensive industrial companies. Climate-neutral mobility is another focal point.

Industrial companies provide technologies that reduce CO2 and show how energy efficiency can contribute to climate neutrality. Digitalization and automation enable networked manufacturing systems that operate more efficiently and conserve resources. Innovative technologies such as 3D printing create tailor-made components, which in return reduces inventories and resource usage.

Global supply chains were very vulnerable during the Covid pandemic, so relocalizing parts of the value chain would help reduce such vulnerability while also cutting back on CO2 emissions. Energy is also a crucial issue for logistics companies, especially since electrified products make up an ever-larger share in the forklift segment and increasingly displace combustion engines.

Digitalization includes topics such as networking, data analytics, Internet of Things, platforms, artificial intelligence, and cyber security. To survive against global competition, companies have to use digitalization to develop, manufacture and sell products faster and more efficiently. In Hannover, companies from electrical engineering, mechanical and plant engineering as well as IT and software show how to automate and digitalize entire process chains for climate-neutral production.

HANNOVER MESSE 2022 emphasizes on-site participation. On the heels of the pandemic, exhibitors and visitors want to meet face-to-face, experience products and solutions in person, and network with the industrial community. Comprehensive digital presentation options extend the offer. "HANNOVER MESSE brings together the best of both worlds, enhancing the unique physical offering with innovative digital participation options. This makes HANNOVER MESSE even more valuable for participating exhibitors from all over the world, because they generate additional leads in the digital space," explained Köckler.

Portugal is Partner Country at HANNOVER MESSE 2022. Under the motto "Portugal Makes Sense", Portugal presents itself at the exhibition as well as in forums and seminars. The focus is on industrial supply, digital platforms and energy solutions – areas that offer many synergies between Portugal and Germany and generate potential for new partnerships.
