With under a year before the show begins, the figures for registration to EMO Hannover 2017 include more than 1,700 firms from 40 different countries and booked stand area totalling 152,000m2. The German trade fair for the metalworking sector will be held from 18-23 September 2017.

With under a year before the show begins, the figures for registration to EMO Hannover 2017 includes more than 1,700 firms from 40 different countries and booked stand area totalling 152,000m2. The German trade fair for the metalworking sector will be held from 18-23 September 2017.

This means the current registration status lies significantly above the previous event. “It looks very much as if the EMO Hannover 2017 will end up with a record number of exhibitors,” commented EMO general commissioner Carl Martin Welcker.

The reasons he cites for the substantial rise are firstly that after four years the EMO is returning to Hannover, the venue that ever since the first event in the 1970s has been acknowledged as an international platform for showcasing innovations.

Secondly, the early-booker offer presented to the exhibitors for the first time has taken full effect. It has already produced a definite plus in terms of area and the number of exhibitors, explained Mr Welcker. Not only have German manufacturers registered for sizeable stands, but Asian companies too. They have once again increased their areas in comparison to the previous event. Overall, Asia currently accounts for more than a fifth of the EMO’s exhibitors.

Under the motto of “Connecting systems for intelligent production”, the international trade fair for the metalworking sector focuses on the megatrend of digitisation and networking under Industry 4.0.
