The Hannover Messe is one of the world’s leading trade fairs focusing on value creation through an integrated industry. The exhibition halls were the centre of Industry 4.0 last week: for 5 days, over 6,000 exhibitors welcomed almost 220,000 visitors, demonstrating their latest technologies and services for solutions that meet the most important industrial demands and challenges.

Flam3D was also present at Hannover Messe. Together with Flanders Investment & Trade and Flanders Make we populated booth E22-E26 in Hall 8, were we used the demonstration concept Family of the Future to present various 3D-printing technologies to show how valuable printing can be for a broad range of businesses. “3D-printing, despite the hype, is still relatively unknown to many companies,” said Kris Binon, managing director of Flam3D.

Flemish Prime Minister Geert Bourgeois visited Family of the Future at Hannover Messe

Flemish Prime Minister Geert Bourgeois visited Hannover Messe on Monday, on the first day of the fair. He visited our booth, that came about in close collaboration with Flanders Investment & Trade, the Flemish Agency for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Agoria, Sirris, imec and Flanders Make. “According to recent studies, Belgium and Flanders may not be at the forefront of the transition to industry 4.0”, Bourgeois explained at the end of the day. “But we make a difference because of the quality and drive of our research network. The false prophets who claimed that there is no future for the manufacturing industry in Flanders are proven wrong every day of the year.”

The world forum on industrial technology is held every spring in Hannover. The Hannover Messe was founded in 1947 by the British military government to stimulate economic progress in post-war Germany. In 2019, the exhibition will take place on April 1-5.
