The joint stand of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia in Hall 7 Stand A28 offers around 25 North Rhine-Westphalian companies, institutes and regional networks the perfect setting to present their innovations, application examples and technologies for shaping the future.

Under the strong umbrella of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, this year’s exhibitors will present themselves at the joint stand of the leading trade fair for factory automation. Companies, research institutes and universities will be presenting initiatives, projects and best practices.

Mechanical and plant engineering in NRW

With almost 200,000 employees in more than 1,600 companies, mechanical engineering is the largest industrial employer in North Rhine-Westphalia. Its turnover in 2022 was around 46.5 billion euros. North Rhine-Westphalia is home to large, world-class industrial companies as well as dozens of smaller “hidden champions” that are leaders in their fields of business.

Mechanical and plant engineering is a driving force and at the same time an enabler for many other branches of industry. It enables the transformation towards a climate-neutral, energy- and resource-efficient economy, both in terms of its own sector and industry as a whole.

Hannover Messe 2024

Hannover Messe is the world’s most important platform for the technology sector and fully covers the core topics of the industrial value chain, from individual components to smart factories.

The Hannover Messe, which will take place from April 22 to 26, 2024, will focus on the key theme of “Industrial Transformation”. The top themes include Industry 4.0/Manufacturing-X, energy for industry, digitalization/artificial intelligence and machine learning, CO2-neutral production as well as hydrogen and fuel cells.

The partner country at this year’s Hannover Messe is Norway, and under the motto “Pioneering the Green Industrial Transition”, it is showcasing its efforts to transition to a low-carbon society and its key role in developing the solutions needed to transform industry and achieve climate neutrality.
