It essentially comprises three main focal points: first, industrial trucks with the traditional forklift providers. Complete solutions such as increasing automation are the focus here. The best machines are also given the IFOY Award on the first day of the exhibition.
Second are the cranes and hoists, which will have their own exhibition area next year in the "Cranes and Lifting Equipment Pavilion" in Hall 27, with a shared stand of the same name. Everything from the simplest load-bearing equipment to fully automated cranes will be on display. Industry 4.0 also plays a part here.
And third is the lifting and high-level access technology, one of the highlights of the open-air site in Hanover. Here the manufacturers of working and mast-climbing platforms, telescopic forklifts, ladder lifts, mini caterpillar and industrial cranes unveil their latest machines.
