IoT and Industry 4.0 at HANNOVER MESSE 2018

The theme advocating this years Hannover Messe is “Integrated Industry – Connect & Collaborate”. From April 23-27 HANNOVER MESSE and CeMAT will run concurrently with a special emphasis on integration of the supply chain and manufacturing. This theme encompasses the range of IoT and Industry 4.0 technology, thinking, and creative applications, which work to achieve efficient manufacturing for businesses through digitized production, integrated energy systems and intelligent logistics solutions.

According to Dr. Jochen Köckler, CEO of Deutsche Messe AG, this years event is fully booked, which is a great indication for business. At a Preview, Köckler described how the fair will showcase innovation, international cooperation, and business.

Attendees come to see the latest innovations in manufacturing and industry 4.0,

shared Dr. Köckler,

More than 60% of the exhibitors are international and one third of the visitors will come from abroad. In 2011 the term industry 4.0 was introduced at Hannover Messe; this year our intention is to continue the story taking Industry 4.0 to the next level,

explained Köckler

We have timely topics including, platforms, joint ventures, machine learning, sensors, and communication.

Dr. Köckler also went in depth on the topic of “Logistics 4.0 meets Industry 4.0.”, the joint theme of the combined Hannover Messe 2018 and CeMAT. This joint event was fostered because, according to Köckler, “No logistics or manufacturing can exist without energy so the Fair will also have a focus on energy efficiency and protecting the environment.”
