With more than 10,000 registered participants and 50,000 views, the first Hannover Messe digital event was a complete success. More than 200 speakers and 100 partner companies created two exciting days with inspiring lectures, live chats and innovation presentations. All told, 110 program items went online. All content is now available on demand at

Hannover Messe Digital recently started with a top-notch panel titled ‘Forward to the New – New opportunities for progress?’ The ‘Who's who’ of industry, led by Peter Altmaier, Minister of Economics, Germany discussed whether the pandemic has opened a new window for shaping social and technological conditions. It became clear that the corona crisis is accelerating digitalisation in industry and that it will be even more important in the future to adapt agile business models.

Hannover Messe 2020 was cancelled due to the corona pandemic and was staged virtually for the first time as the Digital Days. Speaking about the event, Dr Jochen Köckler, Chairman of the Board of Management, Deutsche Messe AG, asserted, “We made history with the Hannover Messe Digital Days, demonstrating impressively that we can also organise digital events. For us as a trade fair organiser, this is an important step forward towards hybrid events. With our high level of trade fair expertise, our digital know-how and our content-related expertise, we are ideally prepared for a fresh start after the crisis.” He further added, “In the future, we will digitally extend the content of Hannover Messe or address individual trends or topics with digital formats. The content of the Digital Days will continue to be available online and promote networking between companies and visitors.”
