Last 20th century Hannover Fair sparks automation

Hermes, Greek god of commerce and stylized symbol of the Hannover Industrial Fair, must have been smiling as the last fair before 2000 came to a successful conclusion. The 1999 event drew 7,510 exhibitors and about 300,000 visitors during its April 19-24 run, says organizer Deutsche Messe AG.

Hermes, Greek god of commerce and stylized symbol of the Hannover Industrial Fair, must have been smiling as the last fair before 2000 came to a successful conclusion. The 1999 event drew 7,510 exhibitors and about 300,000 visitors during its April 19-24 run, says organizer Deutsche Messe AG. Factory Automation (FA)—a new central theme and annual highlight starting in 1999—appears to be finding favor. Some 2,086 firms (27.8%) exhibited in the FA category. The fair is also growing more global, with nearly 46% of exhibitors and about 26% of visitors coming from outside of Germany. Next year's fair will run nearly a month earlier, during March 20-25, 2000.
