Organisers of this year’s Hannover Messe say the five day event will focus on ‘smart efficiency’, a theme underlined by exhibitors from 65 countries showcasing more than 5,000 innovations from the entire industrial spectrum.
Powder metallurgy will again feature strongly at the show, with a number of PM and MIM companies and research centres exhibiting. Companies from Germany and the rest of the world will demonstrate the many advantages and capabilities of the powder metallurgy process.
Speaking in Hannover, Dr Wolfram von Fritsch, Chairman of the Board at Deutsche Messe AG, reported, “The mood among the exhibiting companies is good, they are encouraged by the positive growth indicators.” He added that Hannover Messe 2011 “would not only reflect industry’s continued innovative capabilities, but also show that industry is already able to deliver workable solutions to global challenges such as mobility, climate protection and the efficient management of resources. It is really just a question of implementing these solutions.”
German Chancellor Dr Angela Merkel and the French Prime Minister François Fillon will open show at a ceremony on the evening of 3 April in the Hannover Congress Centrum. The trade fair itself opens on the following morning, 4 April, and runs until 8 April 2011.
