Passes available to 2010 Hannover Messe
Hannover Messe will be hosting many special presentations at the 2010 event, scheduled for April 19-23 in Hannover, Germany. There are a limited number of gold passes to the 2010 Hannover Messe that have been made available exclusively to Plant Engineering readers. The gold passes provide access to the fairgrounds and the exclusive Premium Lounge at the fair. Interested readers can contact Plant Engineering editor Bob Vavra at BVavra@cfemedia.com for more information on obtaining the passes.
The 2010 event features nine international trade shows and a series of educational forums and leadership discussions to address some of the major issues facing manufacturing around the world today.
The 2009 Hannover Messe, conducted in the midst of one of the worst recessions in memory, attracted more than 200,000 attendees from around the world, making Hannover Messe the world's largest trade fair for manufacturing and industrial knowledge.
The fifth World Energy Dialogue picks up the exciting debate where pas events left off. In 2010 senior executives from the international energy industry and politicians will be discussing such key issues as "What's going to happen when the oil runs out?", "How will we power our cars in the future?" and "How do we keep the wheels of industry turning?"
In 2009 the central theme of the World Energy Dialogue was "Security of the Energy Supply." The growing demand for energy worldwide is forcing us to look for new solutions in energy generation and distribution. The declared aim of this international energy summit is to send a clear message - and give a strong lead - to industry and business around the world.
The World Energy Dialogue is jointly organized by the steering committee of the Federation of German Industry (BDI), the German Energy Agency (dena) and Deutsche Messe AG.
The winner of the 2010 Energy Efficiency Award will once again be given for exemplary projects in business and industry that make a real contribution to improving energy efficiency.
The Job & Career Market offers the full range of recruitment activities. Companies from various sectors will be providing detailed information about career opportunities, while personnel officers from big-name companies will be on hand to offer careers advice and pass on details of internships and work experience placements. Career entrants can get advice on their resumes and application documents, and talk to industry insiders about jobs, trends and opportunities in the job market.
The Career Talks service, a forum for dialogue and lectures aimed at visitors and exhibitors alike, offers a packed program of corporate presentations. Here young people can gather important information about career opportunities, gain a first-hand insight into different companies, talk to experienced professionals and pick up tips from experts.
The 2010 WoMen Power congress shows how that can be made to work. Topics such as equal opportunities in the workplace and work-life balance will be addressed in discussions and workshops.
The aim is to gain insights into the strategies developed by businesses in order to achieve a better integration of work and family in the future. Distinguished women speakers from the business world, politics and industry associations will be examining trends in employment policy and discussing career prospects and management culture.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
