Hannover Messe 2022 to focus on digitalization, sustainability

Nov. 9, 2021

Digitalization and sustainability will be the key topics of discussion at Hannover Messe 2022. The trade show for industrial technology will promote more climate protection in business and industry and clearly illustrate how digitalization, automation and regenerative energies can collectively contribute, Deutsche Messe AG reports. After the long pandemic-induced break, the event will take place in person in April 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,” companies from the electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, logistics, energy, and IT and software sectors will show how to shift to digitalized, resource-efficient and climate-neutral production.

Hannover Messe 2022 will emphasize 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.

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