Just under a year before the fair begins, the figures for official exhibitor registration at the EMO Hannover 2017 shows that more than 1,700 companies from 40 countries will participate at the metalworking-focused event.

According to trade fair organizers, more than 152,000 square meters of booth space has been booked, meaning the current registration status lies significantly above comparable numbers from the previous event. “It looks very much as if the EMO Hannover 2017 will end up with a record number of exhibitors,” declares EMO General Commissioner Carl Martin Welcker.

Welcker cites EMO's return to Hannover, the original venue for the fair since the 1970s, after four years. 

Secondly, the early-booker offer presented to the exhibitors for the first time has taken full effect. It has already produced a definite plus in terms of area and the number of exhibitors, explains the EMO’s General Commissioner. Not only have German manufacturers registered for sizeable stands, but more especially Asian companies too. They have once again increased their areas in comparison to the previous event, a development that’s been observable for years now. Overall, Asia currently accounts for more than a fifth of the EMO’s exhibitors.

Under the motto of “Connecting systems for intelligent production”, the world’s upcoming premier trade fair for the metalworking sector focuses fruitfully on the megatrend of digitisation and networking under the aegis of Industry 4.0. To quote Carl Martin Welcker: “With our new motto, we’ve certainly hit the bulls-eye with our exhibitors. Numerous firms can identify with this slogan, and will be showcasing their solutions in the field of Industry 4.0 either on their own stands or in the Industry 4.0 Area”. This, believes the EMO’s General Commissioner, has created the optimum foundation for progressing the success story generated by former events in Hanover.
