From robots to renewable energy, there’s only one place to explore the latest technology and innovations this week. Thousands of visitors from around the world are gathering for the Hanover Trade Fair, one of the world’s most important technology fairs.
Russian protestors might have grabbed the headlines on its opening day, but the focus has now shifted back to the 5000 exhibitors. The huge fair is really 11 fairs in one, showcasing recent developments in sectors including Research & Technology, Energy, Wind, and Industrial Automation.
This year’s theme is Integrated Industry, exploring the growing integration of all industry areas. Machines, industrial equipment and system components will soon be capable of exchanging data in real time, significantly boosting efficiency and safety. Some experts have described this as the “fourth industrial revolution” – following the steam engine, mass production and automation.
This theme will be explored across all parts of the fair. In the “Energy, MobiliTec and Wind” section, exhibitors will look at how integration and intelligent data can make wind and other renewable energy more efficient. In the “Robotics” zone, live demonstrations will show the latest advances, and how they can provide flexible solutions in a wide range of industries.
There’s a diverse programme of talks and forums on topics ranging from international business to nanotechnology. The Global Business & Markets exhibition zone is the ideal place for companies to find out about growing their international business. This year’s Partner Country is the Russian Federation, one of the world’s fastest growing economies. Russian political and industry leaders will be participating in many of the conferences and workshops.
