HANNOVER MESSE lasts for usually five days and is an annual occurrence, with editions set for mid-spring after the start of April. The official organiser for the event is Deutsche Messe AG, and the international trade fair occupies the modern halls of Messe Hannover. Visitors are admitted to the exhibits starting 09:00 am until 18:00 pm, though there might be changes according to the newest program.

Messe Hannover offers visitors plenty of options in terms of public transport. You have four tram lines (8 & 18, and 6 & 16 at two different entrances) and two bus lines (340 and 341). That is ignoring how close to big motorways the exhibition centre sits and the additional access to commuter trains. Shuttle bus service is available for those who’ve just landed at the airport as well!

HANNOVER MESSE regularly achieves a staggering turnout, which should tip you off that this is the one trade fair that you have to attend. There are some 6500 international exhibitors, who are then showcasing to an audience that exceeds 220,000 trade visitors with a high concentration from European countries, particularly from the EU like France, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, the UK, and the Netherlands. Germany, as the host country, appears as the country with the biggest group of visitors.

In terms of professional background, you have representation from mechanical and plant engineering and the process industry to energy-intensive enterprises and energy providers.

Many highlights were included in the event's presentation at Messe Hannover. It attracted approximately 75,000 live visitors and 15,000 digital participants, as well as 2,500 exhibitors. Due to the lifting of Germany's domestic limitations in April 2022, Messe Hannover did not have rigorous Covid-19 safety precautions in place.
