Hannover, the trade fair capital: Innovations on almost 500,000 square metres
From agricultural technology, digitisation and metal processing to disaster control, laboratory technology and machine tools – Hannover is probably the most important German trade fair city and covers an extremely broad spectrum of topics with over 20 different major events. In addition to the internationally renowned trade fairs such as CEBIT and Hannover Messe, these also include some less well-known events such as Pferd & Jagd or ABF (Auto Boot Freizeit), which are aimed at a selected audience. In total, the various trade fairs attract up to two million visitors a year.
With almost 500,000 square metres of covered exhibition space, the Hannover Exhibition Centre with its 26 halls offers more than enough space for this. In addition, the state capital of Lower Saxony scores with its favourable infrastructure. Visitors and exhibitors can easily reach the exhibition grounds via the federal motorways 2 and 7. Around 39,000 parking spaces are available there. In addition, the area is very well connected to the Hannover Stadtbahn and the Hannover Messe/Laatzen railway station.
Superlative trade fair in Hanover – CEBIT
Business, leads and ideas – that’s what the Centre for Office Automation, Information Technology and Telecommunications – short and better known as CEBIT – has stood for since 1994. As the world’s largest trade fair for information technology, the event is a must-attend event for everyone who wants to find out about trends in digitisation or present corresponding solutions and products. The event offers exhibitors and trade visitors a holistic platform with a triad of novelty shows, conferences and networking events. Accordingly, no large corporation will miss the opportunity to present its disruptive solutions for the digitization of administration and business at CEBIT. The spectrum ranges from Artificial Intelligence to Mixed Reality and Blockchain.
With so much innovative spirit, even a single trade fair stand of up to 800 square metres can take up the size of two basketball fields. In order to meet these requirements, Deutsche Messe AG, the organiser of CEBIT, is making changes to the proven concept for the first time this year. Among other things, an improved hall layout will optimise the experience for visitors and exhibitors. In addition, the date of the trade fair was moved from the first quarter of the year to early summer. Further information on the event can be found on the CEBIT trade fair homepage.
