Deutsche Messe AG, in close cooperation with the HANNOVER MESSE exhibitor advisory board and partner associations VDMA (Association of German Mechanical and Plant Engineering) and ZVEI (Central Association of German Electrical Engineering and Digital Industry), has rescheduled HANNOVER MESSE 2022 for May 30 to June 2. The show was originally planned for April.
"Due to the continuing high incidence in Germany and many neighboring countries, we decided together with our exhibitors to reschedule HANNOVER MESSE. Last year demonstrated that the summer months are best for major events during this pandemic. Right now we cannot predict if the Covid situation will be better by April, so the new date offers our customers the greatest possible planning security so that they can present their innovations at the world’s most important industrial trade show," said Dr. Jochen Köckler, CEO of Deutsche Messe AG.
The new date provides exhibitors and visitors with planning security
At the beginning of June 2022, HANNOVER MESSE will be the world's first major industrial event. Its focus on digitalization and sustainability will stimulate innovative and efficient approaches to production and climate protection. This year’s show runs four days due to the Hannover Exhibition Center’s full event calendar in June. In 2023, HANNOVER MESSE will resume its normal five-day schedule in April.
"It is right to postpone HANNOVER MESSE to a later date and allow the vaccination rate to increase, which is in the interest of exhibitors and visitors to the fair. The later date also increases the probability of a bigger audience both nationally and internationally, which benefits everyone. The mechanical and plant engineering sector will present itself in Hannover as a technological enabler of climate protection and digitalization as well as a provider and user of cutting-edge technology for networked and intelligent production," says VDMA General Manager Thilo Brodtmann.
