Our stage program at Hannover Messe

Digitalization is fundamentally reshaping business models. It is also responsible for the transformation of our lives, industries, and their manufacturing processes. We discussed what exactly that means at the fair and we presented the latest trends and solutions, new technologies and innovations – discover the value of the Digital Enterprise! More than 20 agenda items each day awaited visitors in our Thought Leaders Forum, with exciting topics chosen by our experts along with new perspectives in the daily panel discussions.

Theme of the day: Digital Enterprise, MindSphere, Industrie 4.0 and Smart Data

Digitalization changes everything – enterprises go digital. This requires new machines and engineering concepts. The digital twin plays an important role. Representatives from the industry shared their thoughts and opinions in the morning panel discussion.

The amount of data generated is increasing at a tremendous rate. How can this data be used in a smart way? Which benefits result from the data? We discussed this with our partners from the MindSphere ecosystem in the afternoon.

This and many more presentations from our specialists demonstrated the importance of digitalization in the fields of Pharmaceuticals, F&B, discrete and process industries, Additive Manufacturing as well as Energy for Industry.
