NORTEC Hamburg

| Trade fair for production technology and mechanical engineering in Northern Germany

The NORTEC trade fair in Hamburg, specializing in production technology and mechanical engineering, focuses specifically on the needs and innovations in the North German and Northern European regions. Since its establishment in 1988, NORTEC has become one of the most important information and distribution platforms for the industry of production technology and metal processing..

Held biennially in January, the fair is organized by Landesmesse Stuttgart GmbH. It attracts professionals from various sectors, including aviation, medical technology, wind energy technology, shipbuilding, mechanical engineering, and vehicle construction. NORTEC showcases all stages of the industrial manufacturing process chain – from concept and prototype development to the finished end product. Special emphasis is placed on the latest technologies in metalworking, as well as laser, automation, and electronic technologies.

The fair offers a wide range of topics and products, including machine tools and manufacturing equipment, precision tools, robotics and automation, software, digital and IT solutions, control and regulation technology, measurement and testing technology, quality assurance, electronics manufacturing, components and assemblies, materials, contract and job production, conveying and storage technology, and logistics management, operational equipment and accessories.

NORTEC also serves as a platform for the exchange of knowledge and ideas. The Nortec Forum accompanies the fair with practical lectures and discussion rounds on current topics in production technology. Another highlight is the Nortec Award, an innovation prize eagerly anticipated each year.

The venue, Messe Hamburg, offers an ideal location for this event. It has modern facilities that facilitate the exchange and presentation of innovations and is located in a city known for its strong industrial base and its role as one of Europe's most important trading centers.

Thus, the NORTEC fair in Hamburg is a crucial meeting point for professionals and decision-makers from various industrial sectors interested in the latest developments in production technology. It offers a unique opportunity to learn about new market developments in production automation, 3D printing, electronics, and laser technology, and to establish valuable contacts.

The NORTEC takes place biennially, and therefore for the twentieth time previsibly in January 2026 in Hamburg.
