The German Machine Tool Builders' Association (VDW), Frankfurt, is repositioning its metalworking fair Emo Hannover: As the global leading fair for production technology, it will focus on the future of industrial production.

"The sector is in a constant process of transformation and is facing huge challenges. As the leading global trade fair, Emo Hannover must reflect these, make them transparent and propose solutions if it is to continue to be of relevance for the future", VDW executive director Dr. Wilfried Schäfer explained. The new claim "Innovate Manufacturing" addresses just these challenges. At the same time, development of the global leading fair into the innovation platform for production technology will be advanced in order to evolve into an internationally relevant business platform – for more than just the exhibition period.

But Innovate Manufacturing means more than just technology. Emo Hannover wants to offer topics in future that are of relevance for production technology and its customer industries throughout the world. The communication concept rests on the pillars Emo Communication, Emo Connect, Emo Digital and Emo Conference. These include new formats such as speakers' corner, master classes or Emo Academy, but also familiar offers such as matchmaking or guided highlight tours – including digitally. The next Emo Hannover is scheduled for September 18 to 23, 2023.
