Hannover Fair to join IMTS
Industrial Automation North America will showcase products and solutions for production automation, complementing IMTS’ focus on machine tools, metalworking and precision manufacturing. Industrial Automation North America will take place every two years parallel to IMTS.
Dr. Andreas Gruchow, Member of the Board at Deutsche Messe AG, said, “IMTS is a well-established and highly successful event. As the organizer of HANNOVER MESSE, the world’s largest industrial technology trade fair, we bring to this partnership a strong background in automation. We are confident that these collocated events will attract more exhibiting companies and visitors and bolster recognition of both, IMTS and Industrial Automation North America, as the continent’s leading destination for manufacturing technology.”
Wolfgang Lenarz, Senior Vice President at Deutsche Messe AG, added, “Industrial Automation North America is a continuation of our international expansion strategy. In 2009 we produced a total of 31 events outside of Germany that collectively hosted 12,131 exhibiting companies and 1.14 million visitors. With the signing of this agreement, we will have events in Australia, Brazil, China, India, Russia, Turkey, the UAE, and the U.S.”
Douglas K. Woods, President of The Association For Manufacturing Technology, said, “We are thrilled to reinforce the international nature of IMTS by having one of manufacturing’s premier trade show organizers join with us for our important North American event. We are taking a major step forward by bringing Industrial Automation North America to the IMTS campus so that we can expand and strengthen the range of solutions available to our common visitors.”
