With the exchange of industrial knowhow and specialised networking events the highlights of the show, the entire business community benefits from it.

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. 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 Hannover 2017 will be the highlight of the year for the metal-working sector,” according to Wilfried Schäfer, executive director of VDW (the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association).

From 18 to 23 September 2017, the exhibition will once again be the international meeting point for trade visitors interested in production technology. Under the theme of ‘Connecting systems for intelligent production’, the focus will be on networking and digitisation.

Numerous supporting events will round off the EMO Hannover’s attractions
The EMO Hannover is not only the most important meeting point for all protagonists in the metalworking sector, manufacturers and users alike. It is also traditionally a forum for innovations and trendsetters. “We shall be organising numerous events designed to address and indeed progress important technical and commercial issues in the world of metalworking”, reports Wilfried Schäfer. They complement the manufacturers’ range of exhibits, and communicate to visitors a comprehensive picture of trends and issues themed around metalworking.

They are exemplified by the “Industry 4.0 Area” with its presentation forum addressing multifarious aspects of the motto embraced by the EMO Hannover 2017: “Connecting systems for intelligent production”, the “India Day”, the conference on the topic of “Additive Manufacturing”, the seminar on machine safety, or the special show on “Aerospace Technology”. The picture is rounded off by other activities themed around youth recruitment, a match-making initiative, or a special stand featuring international start-ups.

The VDW will shortly be publishing the provisional EMO exhibitors’ directory under www.emo-hannover.de. So far, around 2,000 exhibitors from 42 different countries have registered. That means that this year the event is well on the way to topping the record figures achieved by the EMO Hannover in 2013. The major exhibitors in 2017 include DMG Mori, Mazak, Fanuc, FFG, Grob, Doosan, Okuma, Makino and Siemens.

“The complete EMO exhibitors directory reads like a Who’s Who of international production technology manufacturers,” says Wilfried Schäfer.
