Area plan of EMO Hannover 2019

Club of Metalworking card allows you free public transport within Hannover.

Even though the floor planning for EMO Hannover 2019 is still in full swing, the trade fair’s organiser VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association) has already published the first details.

In September, the biggest change in the area plan will be found in halls 8 and 9. Both halls, perfectly located between the South and East 3 entrances, will be newly used and act as a link between halls 11 and 7. This way, the south-east corner of EMO Hannover will be significantly upgraded.

In terms of exhibition content, hall 8 will house the areas of mechanical components and waste disposal, as well as industrial electronics, robotics and industry 4.0. The industrial electronics, robotics and industry 4.0 section will continue in hall 9, where also additive manufacturing, IoT in production and the startup area will adjoin. For the first time, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy’s founder’s prize for digital innovations will also be awarded here with a special prize for “digital innovations in production technology” worth 10 000 euros. Exhibitors of forming technology will also be changing halls – in 2019, they will be found in hall 16.

Even though changes in hall occupancy are still possible and the floor plan will continue for a few weeks, the world’s leading trade fair for metalworking is increasingly taking shape.
