(June 8th, 2016)

After our first Hannover Messe (HM) has come to a successful end, we are looking back at one of the world’s most important industrial trade shows. The first HM was organized in 1947 as a competitor to the Leipzig Trade Fair. Back then it was still called “Export Messe 1947 Hannover”. This laid the cornerstone for the now biggest fair for investment goods worldwide.

Henceforth, the HM’s core themes were industrial automation, IT, energy and environmentally friendly technologies, as well as research & development. These topics attract nearly 200 000 visitors per year plus 5000 exhibitors from 75 different countries. Among the top 3 exhibitor nations, China, next to Germany and this year’s partner country, USA, was present with 650 exhibitors. Additionally, both the U.S. and China broke new records with regardto the numbers of visitors from each respective country. Both crossed the 5000 thresholds and occupied, after Germany, the 2nd and 3rd place. Thus, China solidified its position as the second-biggest visiting nation at the HM.

This year’s theme: „Integrated Industry – Discover Solutions“.

Since 2010, the HM has had changing partner countries. This year’s partner was the United States of America. Accordingly, on April 24th, 2016, the HM had the honor to welcome President Barack Obama and Chancellor Angela Merkel for the opening ceremony. The President’s objective: convince more companies to invest in the United States. After the official opening Obama and Merkel undertook a joint tour of the trade fair. They started with the booths of American companies. Another focus were technologies, such as 3D printers or electric vehicles. The winner of the Hermes Award 2016, Hartin IT Software, was also honored by a visit.

Finally, Obama used the occasion to give a speech to over 500 students and faculty members at the Leibniz University of Hanover. Apart from numerous global issues, he emphasized the importance of a peaceful, united and liberal Europe for the future of the world.

ECOVIS Beijing was not only impressed by the high-profile opening ceremony, but by the HM’s atmosphere and opportunities in general. We launched our first HM with a motivated team in order to promote ECOVIS Beijing and especially our new Heidelberg office and to make new contacts. Our ECOVIS Beijing partner Richard Hoffmann came to lend a helping hand. The precise preparation and the open and friendly attitude of our team turned the HM 2016 into a resounding success. We want to thank everyone, who has visited our booth and are looking forward to the next Hannover Messe.
