In a press conference on Tuesday, Wolfgang Pech, senior vice president of Deutsch Messe, announced that the Hannover, Germany CeMAT—part of a global network of materials handling industry trade shows—will now be staged every two years. The next Hannover show will be held May 19-23, 2014.

“This change was made to accommodate the faster pace of change in the intralogistics market, as well as the industry’s shorter innovation cycles,” he explained. “The decision to present the this exhibition every two years was made in close consultation with the CeMAT Executive Committee and the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), as well as by the unanimous request of exhibitors.”

Additionally, CeMat 2014 will sport a new look, with five distinct technology zones: pick and pack; move and lift; store and load; logistics information technology (IT); and manage and service. The event will feature branch-specific focus topics to give attendees a concentrated overview of showcased products and services under prioritized headings, Pech said. The Hannover CeMAT is forecast to host 1,000-plus exhibitors and be attended by more than 53,000 international visitors.

Pech also discussed the results of this year’s CeMAT shows held in China, India and Russia, as well as shared an outlook for the next CeMAT expo to be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, from March 19-22. 

ProMat 2013 is scheduled to be held January 21-24, 2013 in Chicago’s McCormick Place South. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete ProMat 2013 coverage.
