Logistics show to co-locate with Hannover Messe in 2018
CeMAT Show to expand reach of even-year trade event in Germany.
After the success of the 2016 Hannover Messe, trade show officials have expanded the reach of the world's largest industrial trade show.
In even-numbered show years beginning in 2018, Hannover Messe will be co-located with CeMAT, the industrial logistics and supply main management show also produced by parent company Deutsche Messe. The 2018 show will be April 23-27 in Hannover, Germany, and the 2017 Hannover Messe will be held April 24-28. CFE Media is a media partner with Hannover Messe.
In odd-numbered years, Hannover Messe includes its Motion, Drives, and Automation (MDA) pavilions at the show. Those shows tend to have more attendance than the even-numbered years, but attendance was up more than 20% for the 2016 Hannover Messe that included the United States as a Partner Country. "Intelligent intralogistics is the backbone and enabler of Industrie 4.0. It therefore ties in very closely with the Industrial Automation and Digital Factory themes covered by Hannover Messe. And that is why we will be running CeMAT alongside Hannover Messe, starting in 2018," said Dr. Andreas Gruchow as the Deutsche Messe Managing Board member in charge of CeMAT. "This will create a truly unique platform for Industrie 4.0. The synergies are obvious. Staged conveniently at the same time and place, the two shows will cover Industrie 4.0 themes in greater depth and with greater breadth than any other event worldwide." "Intralogistics has a relevance that extends far beyond warehousing and distribution and into manufacturing and assembly," said Christoph Beumer, Chairman of the CeMAT executive committee and managing director of Beumer Group GmbH & Co.
"Intralogistics systems very often control value-added services; they stock and unload assembly lines; and they enable manufacturers to pre-sell products before they even make it off the line and into the warehouse. Intralogistics makes it possible to process short production runs and one-off production jobs cost-effectively and is therefore integral to Industrie 4.0. For these reasons, it makes eminent sense to further expand CeMAT's sharply defined profile and leverage synergies with Hannover Messe."

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
