CeMAT to be co-staged with Hannover Messe every 2 years

May 23, 2016
Meeting eCommerce expectations calls for new Industry 4.0-style solutions and the close, intelligent integration of production and logistics.

Dr. Andreas Gruchow, Member of the Managing Board, Deutsche Messe AG, Dr. Christoph Beumer, CEO, The BEUMER Group, and Sascha Schmel, Chairman of the Materials Handling & Intralogistics Association within the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), announced at today’s CeMAT press conference at the Hannover Exhibition Center that beginning in 2018, CeMAT will take place parallel to HANNOVER MESSE.

CeMAT, trade fair for intralogistics and supply chain management, is to be co-located with Hannover Messe every two years, starting in 2018.

Featuring about 1,000 exhibitors from around the world, CeMAT is part of a fast-growing industry that produced 20.1 billion euros worth of equipment in 2015 in Germany alone. According to CeMAT, the main drivers of this growth is the rise of eCommerce and integrated production – two trends that are placing pressure on intralogistics systems, forcing them to become more intelligent, networked, flexible, transparent, fast and efficient.

Meeting eCommerce expectations calls for new Industry 4.0-style solutions and the close, intelligent integration of production and logistics.

“Intelligent intralogistics is the backbone and enabler of Industry 4.0," said Dr. Andreas Gruchow, Deutsche Messe Managing Board member in charge of CeMAT. "It therefore ties in very closely with the Industrial Automation and Digital Factory themes covered by Hannover Messe. And that is why we will be running CeMAT alongside Hannover Messe, starting in 2018."

"This will create a truly unique platform for Industry 4.0. The synergies are obvious. Staged conveniently at the same time and place, the two shows will cover Industry 4.0 themes in greater depth and with greater breadth than any other event worldwide."
