CeMAT – now absorbed by Hannover Messe as a part of the bigger show – ran as a digital event in April 2021. The 2021 digital edition managed to satisfy stakeholder needs and bridge the gap left open by the coronavirus pandemic. Now Deutsche Messe AG is working towards a hybrid edition for April 2022.
Hannover Messe 2022 is coming back to Messe Hannover from April 25th until April 29th, 2022 with a brand new concept. As a precaution against COVID-19, the next live edition will be held following comprehensive protection measures. The trade fair, co-staged with Hannover Messe, will offer new digital components for exhibitors and professionals who can’t make it in person.
Intralogistics lies at the heart of CeMAT and innovation is its driving force. This international fair opens doors to new inventors and startups. Each edition sees the launch and presentation of many thousands of inventions in the sphere of logistics and transportation engineering. CeMAT arrives once every two years in Hannover, Germany and is based at Messe Hannover. It’s important to note that CeMAT has cemented its relevance through its co-location with Hannover Messe. This is a brand new decision and today CeMAT is considered part of the overall programming for the event. Organisers have revealed this change in how the event is held as necessary and useful in generating synergies and exposing exhibitors to new audiences and buyers.
CeMAT boasts one of the richest product portfolios out in the world. Categories include logistics services, FTS, hoists, cranes, e-logistics services, industrial doors, factory equipment, packaging technology, overhead conveyors, forklift accessories, forklifts, order picking technology, storage systems and so much more. The exhibition space is divided into the following zones - Pick & Pack, Move & Lift, Store & Load, Logistics IT, Manage & Service. Hannover as a central hub for the German industrial sector is a natural magnet for native exhibitors and buyers, but editions are also heavily visited by professionals from the nearby European Union markets. China, South Korea and Thailand have also been present in recent editions. Professionally, visitors come from all parts of the industry: logistics, warehousing, supply chain, IT & finance job, FMCG and resources.
