Hannover Messe to host Digital Days virtual conference in July


Hannover Messe is hosting a two-day digital conference next month in place of the annual in-person conference and exhibition.

Digital Days run July 14-15 featuring keynotes from business, science and political leaders as well as panel discussions, live chats, networking and presentations.

Content will revolve around the questions of how industrial transformation can succeed and which steps industry must take to recover quickly from the consequences of the shutdown.

“With the Digital Days, we are creating an online platform for the entire Hannover Messe community. We had to cancel the show this year due to the [coronavirus] pandemic, but people still need to learn about the latest technological products and solutions and to talk with experts from all over the world,” says Dr. Jochen Köckler, chairman of the managing board, Deutsche Messe AG, in a statement.

All participants will be able to search for suitable business and cooperation partners and contact each other directly using a chat function.

Indonesia, the fair’s partner country for 2020-21, will still be involved in the digital event.

Registration for the event is free.
