CeMAT convenes May 2-6 in Germany

CeMAT will be held May 2-6 in Hannover, Germany, against a background of accelerating economic recovery. The world’s leading trade fair for intralogistics is taking place this year under the tagline, “Sustainability in Intralogistics.”

Following a decline in sales in 2009 and 2010, the industry is expecting to see nine percent growth in turnover during the current year. Companies right across the industrial spectrum are starting to invest in logistics again.

More than 1,000 exhibitors will be presenting their latest innovations on a net display area of some 80,000 square meters.

“This means that CeMAT remains the undisputed No.1 event for this market worldwide,” said Dr. Andreas Gruchow, a member of the Board of Deutsche Messe AG. “The high quota of foreign exhibitors and visitors underlines the unique importance that CeMAT has for the industry.”

Approximately half of the exhibitors at CeMAT come from outside Germany. The countries with the largest exhibitor presence at the show are Italy, China, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Spain, France, Belgium, Austria, Finland and Switzerland
