Hannover, Germany – Manufacturing technology companies will showcase the latest in the digital networking of people and machines in the age of artificial intelligence at HANNOVER MESSE 2019, April 1-5, 2019 in Hannover, Germany.
With an anticipated 6,500 companies from 75 nations in attendance, the show will be spotlighting components and system solutions for tomorrow’s industrial production and energy systems. Exhibitors will include industry leaders of automation, robotics, industrial software, drive systems and fluid power technology, energy technologies, subcontracting, and research and development.
Innovative digital technologies have continued to push the industry forward, allowing manufacturing processes to become increasingly more accurate, flexible, and cost-efficient. Encompassing the lead theme of Industrial Intelligence, the show will highlight the importance of artificial intelligence and how humans play a key role in enabling this technology through expanded knowledge and training. To demonstrate this collaborative relationship, there will be more than 100 user examples of machine learning, including the first-ever 5G test field that will be located in Hall 16. Here, attendees will be provided with a glimpse of the future with a demonstration of the fifth generation of mobile communications.
HANNOVER MESSE 2019 will also debut the Future of Work in Industry conference, where thought leaders will share experiences and insights about the impact of digitization. On April 3, visitors can learn about industry 4.0 and the associated effects on the working world of the future, as well as innovated solutions. Speakers will include philosopher and author Richard David Precht, Siemens Chief Human Resources Officer Janina Kugel and "human cyborg" Ralf Neuhäuser.
A returning theme of the show will be lightweight design, which is important for electric mobility. The Lightweight Design Summit will open a dialogue between politics, business, and research on topics relevant to lightweight construction. Panel discussions that focus on material and resource efficiency, innovative engineering, and digitized development chains, will take place on April 2.
The first Industrial Pioneers Summit, hosted on April 2, will look into the future to determine what may come after Industry 4.0. Thought leaders and innovators will share insights and predictions for future developments and scenarios, shaping a vision for 2025.
This year’s chosen partner is Sweden, a country that shares in the innovation and digital transformation that the show represents. Sweden will promote the country’s networking, trade, and investment with its global partners.
