FPI @ Hannover Messe

Posted on: March 15, 2016

Under the umbrella of Zonescorp-UAE, Future Pipe Industries Abu Dhabi will be participating at Hannover Messe, the world’s leading trade fair for industrial technology.

The Trade fair will take place on April 25th – 29th, 2016 and it is held on the Hanover fairground in Hanover, Germany. Hannover Messe is an international trade fair and exhibition held in Hannover, Germany annually. The exhibition offers key industrial sectors an opportunity to display their individual strengths and at the same time engage in interdisciplinary knowledge transfer. The exhibition hosts more than 6,500 companies showcasing the latest technological innovations and is visited by more than 200,000 visitors from across the world.

HANNOVER MESSE covers a wider range of themes and exhibits than any other event – R&D, industrial automation and IT, industrial supply, production engineering and services, as well as energy and environmental technology. The opportunity to develop new sales leads in other sectors, unique access to new products and technologies and a huge international presence attract exhibitors and visitors from all over the world.

The Hannover Messe started in 1947 in an undamaged factory building in Laatzen, south of Hanover, by an arrangement of the British military government in order to boost the economic advancement of post-war Germany. The first fair was colloquially known as Fischbrötchenmesse (Fischbrötchen fair) due to the exemptions in food rationing for the fair at this time. It proved hugely successful and was hence repeated on a yearly basis, contributing largely to the success of the Hanover fairground in replacing the then-East German city of Leipzig as the new major fair city for West Germany.

Nowadays, the Hanover Fair covers all areas of industrial technology.
