From 18 to 23 September 2017, international manufacturers of production technology will be showcasing "Connecting
systems for intelligent production" at the 2017 EMO Hannover. The world's premier trade fair for the metalworking sector will
be spotlighting the entire bandwidth of modern-day metalworking technology, which constitutes the heart of any industrial
production operation. It will be exhibiting the very latest machines, plus efficient technical solutions, product-supportive
services, sustainability in production operations, and much, much more.
The principal focus of EMO Hannover is on metal-cutting and forming machine tools, production systems, high-precision tools, automated material flow, computer technology, industrial electronics and accessories.
Exhibitors come to EMO Hannover from all over the world and from all segments of metalworking technology. With approximately 60% of exhibitors from outside of Germany, EMO Hannover is the world's most international trade fair for metalworking. The 2013 EMO Hannover attracted more than 2,130 exhibitors and around 143,000 trade visitors from over 100 different countries. Experts from the industry know and recognise that fact - which is another reason why no other trade fair can match the international character of EMO Hannover's visiting public.
EMO visitors are best qualified specialists who come from all over the world. Their in-depth knowledge of the industry and their decision making power is unequalled. That is owed to the innovation potential of productivity and efficiency presented to them at the fair. They come from all major industrial sectors, like machinery and plant manufacturing, the automotive industry and its component suppliers, aerospace, precision mechanics and optics, shipbuilding, tool and mould construction, medical technology, steel and lightweight construction.
The German Machine Tool Builders' Association (VDW) – spokesman for the German machine tool industry - is entrusted with the organization of EMO Hannover. Since 1920 the VDW has organized trade fairs for machine tool builders and is so-tospeak the founder of the trade fair for production technology. The trademark "A Fair by VDW" stands for highly professional organized fairs such as EMO Hannover since 1977 and METAV Düsseldorf since 1980.
Decision makers from around the world will come to EMO Hannover 2017. The matchmaking event of Enterprise
Europe Network will bring them together. And what is more: EMO-exhibitors can use this service free-of-charge!
With their "cooperation exchange mart", EMO organizer VDW will be working together with Enterprise Europe Network to help
exhibitors and visitors establish new business contacts. Already in advance of the EMO, a database-supported platform will
be used to schedule meetings between visiting professionals and exhibiting companies, e.g. to facilitate the creation of
international partnerships or for the acquisition of new customers, suppliers or trading partners. Further information available
