Hannover Messe 2018
Hannover Messe 2018, April 23. - 27.:
Integrated Industry - Connect & Collaborate
The lead topic of Hannover Messe 2018 – “Integrated Industry – Connect & Collaborate” – shows that connection in industry is creating totally new forms of working, collaborating and doing business. The result being greater competitiveness, better jobs and new business models. VDMA and its sector network is represented in various halls at Hannover 2018, with a wide range of events on offer.
Value creation in B2B business is increasingly coming from digital services. Mechanical engineering can be a driver of the new platform economy – as long as the topic is internalized all the way up to board level.
Sensors play a central role in implementing Industrie 4.0 since they are the connecting elements between the digital and the real world. Yet, the costs of the suitable sensor technology often hamper implementing technological innovations in machinery and plant engineering. This guideline provides assistance: Users and manufacturers of sensor systems are supported in developing cost-efficient sensor systems.
For the 4th time already, the Additive Manufacturing Symposium organized by the Additive Manufacturing Association in cooperation with the fair in Hannover will take place at the Hannover Messe. Technology suppliers and users of the new manufacturing technologies will both have their say, all under the headline “Mechanical Engineering.”
On the occasion of the Hannover Messe, VDMA Power Systems presented the “Power Plant Engineering Economic Trend 2018”. Before the presentation, the Chairman of VDMA Power Systems and CEO of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, Dr. Markus Tacke, explained: “The announcements in the coalition contract regarding climate protection and energy transition must now be acted upon, as European plant engineering can only then assert itself as the forerunner of a leading market for energy systems in global competition.”
VDMA raises forecast from 3 to 5 percent - Open borders and the prevention of a trade war are crucial to a successful production - CeMAT and IAMD are the key building blocks of the Hannover Messe - Recommended courses of action for the platform economy
At the Hannover Messe, the Production Technology cluster of excellence and the associated PROTECA network will present solutions relating to the usability of machine learning algorithms for self-optimising production systems.
Über 20 Mitgliedsunternehmen der VDMA Arbeitsgemeinschaft Brennstoffzellen werden vom 23. bis 27. April 2018 auf dem Gemeinschaftsstand Wasserstoff und Brennstoffzellen in Halle 27 der Hannover Messe vertreten sein.
Energy is the leading global trade show for integrated energy systems and mobility. Smart grids, virtual power plants, renewable energies: new ideas and solutions for tomorrow's energy supply are presented at the world's biggest energy fair running April 23th to 27th 2018.

Mexico takes a great leap forward
Mechanical engineering exports to the partner country of the Hannover Messe grew considerably in 2017. VDMA trusts in improvements in trade brought on by a new agreement between the EU and Mexico.
