They are highly effective marketing platforms which enable intralogistics providers to get their products and innovations in front of key buyers in their target countries and regions. Deutsche Messe’s overseas CeMAT events are offshoots of the parent CeMAT show in Hannover, Germany, which ranks as the world’s leading trade fair for intralogistics and supply chain management. Starting in 2018, the show will move to a new time slot that will see it co-staged with HANNOVER MESSE every two years. The next CeMAT in Hannover will thus be held from 23 to 27 April 2018.
Complete overview of the intralogistics industry
The CeMAT show in Hannover covers every area of logistics. Its scope includes energy-saving forklifts and industrial trucks, sophisticated, fully automated handling systems, hoists and aerial working platforms, ingenious rack and warehousing systems, the latest in control systems, logistics IT, and everything in between. Other key highlights include cranes and lifting equipment, access platforms, Auto ID systems, robotic logistics solutions and packaging technology.
The international significance of CeMAT to the global logistics sector is demonstrated by the fact that it has spawned seven regional CeMAT events outside of Germany.
