Hannover Messe 2022 rescheduled for June

Jan. 21, 2022

Deutsche Messe AG, in close cooperation with the Hannover Messe exhibitor advisory board and partner associations VDMA  and ZVEI, rescheduled Hannover Messe 2022 for May 30-June 2. The show was originally scheduled in April.

“Due to the continuing high incidence in Germany and many neighboring countries, we decided together with our exhibitors to reschedule Hannover Messe. Last year demonstrated that the summer months are best for major events during this pandemic. Right now we cannot predict if the COVID situation will be better by April, so the new date offers our customers the greatest possible planning security so that they can present their innovations at the world’s most important industrial trade show,” said Dr. Jochen Köckler, CEO of Deutsche Messe AG.

This year’s show is schedule to run four days due to the Hannover Exhibition Center’s full event calendar in June. In 2023, Hannover Messe will resume its normal five-day schedule in April.

“It is right to postpone Hannover Messe to a later date and allow the vaccination rate to increase, which is in the interest of exhibitors and visitors to the fair. The later date also increases the probability of a bigger audience both nationally and internationally, which benefits everyone. The mechanical and plant engineering sector will present itself in Hannover as a technological enabler of climate protection and digitalization as well as a provider and user of cutting-edge technology for networked and intelligent production,” VDMA General Manager Thilo Brodtmann said.

Wolfgang Weber, chairman of the ZVEI, added: “Hannover Messe is the world's most important industrial showcase for our companies, so the new date is correct given the current circumstances. We are convinced that in the summer we will reach a larger audience interested in Industry 4.0 and its contribution to sustainability. With our innovations in automation, digitalization, electrification, and energy efficiency, the electrical and digital industry is guiding the industrial transition to a climate-neutral circular economy. We want to show the broadest possible audience what this path can look like, because we can only master this challenge if we work together. Hannover Messe offers the perfect setting for this."
