Only in Hannover can you find five leading international trade fairs taking place at the same time under one roof. All key technologies and core areas of industry – from research and development, industrial automation, IT, industrial supply, production technologies and services to energy and mobility technologies – can be found in Hannover. 


HANNOVER MESSE is one of the world's largest trade fairs for industrial technology. It began as "Export-Messe 1947 Hannover", was initially renamed "Deutsche Industrie-Messe" and finally changed its name to "Hannover Messe" in 1961. For more than 70 years now, HANNOVER MESSE has been held annually in the capital of Lower Saxony, a hotspot for industry. HANNOVER MESSE serves as a platform for presenting the latest innovations and advances in various industrial sectors. Exhibitors at HANNOVER MESSE include companies from the fields of automation, energy, digitalization, industrial suppliers, research and development and many more.

In particular, HANNOVER MESSE is known for attracting professionals, decision-makers and experts from a wide range of industries and from all over the world, offering them the opportunity to network, exchange ideas and explore potential collaborations. As such a cross-industry event, HANNOVER MESSE covers a wide range of industrial topics, including Industry 4.0, smart manufacturing, robotics, artificial intelligence, energy efficiency and sustainable technologies. In addition, HANNOVER MESSE frequently hosts presentations, panel discussions and forums on topics relating to the future of industrial technology. HANNOVER MESSE thus plays a crucial role in shaping global industrial trends and promoting international cooperation in the field of industrial innovation.

Each year, HANNOVER MESSE focuses on a specific country, the respective partner country. The partner country of Hannover Messe 2024 is Norway under the motto "Norway 2024: Pioneering the Green Industrial Transition." Norway has a rich industrial history and is a reliable energy producer. This heritage, combined with the country's commitment to accelerating the green transition, creates the ideal basis to be the partner country of HANNOVER MESSE.

The next Hannover Messe will take place from 22.04. - 26.04.2024.
