Despite the COVID-19 crisis, industrial transformation continues unabated. The mega topics of digitalization, individualization, climate protection, and demographic change will be the focus of the Hannover Messe Digital Days. This new two-day digital event provides an overview of current developments in the fields of industry, energy and logistics and provides orientation for the time during and after the crisis.
Hannover Messe Digital Days start on July 14 with exciting keynotes from business, science and politics as well as panel discussions, live chats, networking, and innovation presentations. Everything revolves around the questions of how industrial transformation can succeed and which steps industry must take to recover quickly from the consequences of the shutdown.
“With the Digital Days, we are creating an online platform for the entire Hannover Messe community. We had to cancel the show this year due to the corona pandemic, but people still need to learn about the latest technological products and solutions and to talk with experts from all over the world. Because tomorrow’s innovations are only possible when different industries and cultures exchange ideas,” said Dr. Jochen Köckler, Chairman of the Managing Board, Deutsche Messe AG.
The Hannover Messe Digital Days revolve around the content of the show. For example, the conference program focuses on topics such as Industrie 4.0, artificial intelligence, smart energy, and Logistics 4.0. Exhibitor products and solutions form the second layer of content. Networking also plays a prominent role: All participants can search for suitable business and cooperation partners and contact each other directly using the chat function.
One of the biggest highlights is the Hermes Award ceremony. For the first time, this internationally coveted technology prize will be awarded digitally. A jury chaired by Dr. Reimund Neugebauer, President of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, chose the winner from numerous high-quality submissions. The announcement will be made on July 14th.
