31 Mar. - 04 Apr. 2025 | The whole world of technology under one roof

The Hannover Messe is the world's leading trade fair for technology, which is held annually at the Hanover exhibition center and brings together leading international trade fairs such as Industrial Automation, MDA, Energy, Digital Factory, Comvac, Industrial Supply and Research & Technology under one roof. With this wide range of topics and offerings, the trade fair covers the entire industrial value chain, from individual components to intelligent factories. Here, companies from mechanical engineering, the electrical and digital industry, as well as the energy industry, present technologies and solutions for a networked and climate-neutral industry. The Hannover Messe attracts trade visitors and the general public, who can learn about current trends and developments in numerous specialist forums.

The focus is on digitization and automation of complex production processes, the use of hydrogen to supply factories with energy, and the use of software to record and reduce the CO2 footprint. The Hannover Messe conference program offers a unique opportunity to discuss the challenges facing industry in times of energy shortages and supply chain problems at an international level. Since its origins in the Hanover Export Fair of 1947, the Hannover Messe has developed into the leading trade fair venue for technology and innovation at an international level. Exhibitors use the fair to fully exploit the market potential of their companies and products and to conclude cross-industry deals.

The HANNOVER MESSE will take place on 5 days from Monday, 31. March to Friday, 04. April 2025 in Hanover.
