Trade fair review HMI 2015

As in previous years Deutsche Messe AG, as an organizer of the Hannover Trade Fair Industry, drew a very positive balance of the Hannover Trade Fair 2015. A new record of more than 220,000 visitors, including 70,000 from abroad underlines the importance of this industry-leading global trade fair. Industry 4,0 as a project for the future of the cross-linked industrial production and intelligent energy systems ran through all exhibition halls and branches.

VIPA and YASKAWA presented themselves for the first time at the Hannover Trade Fair with a combined booth and a show truck in the open-air exhibition ground that impressed numerous visitors with its appearance. The VIPA holding company YASKAWA Europe had organized an international partner conference in Düsseldorf.  From here all partners of the EMEA countries were driven to the Hannover trade fair so that they could get a view of the trade fair and particularly the presentation of YASKAWA and VIPA.


Generally speaking, due to the public interest the five trade fair days were completely successful for VIPA/YASKAWA, especially the joint new developments iMC7 and Sigma7. On an international level they met many partners and established new contacts. This year`s partner country India opened up the opportunity for VIPA to introduce their Indian contact partners of many years to a broad audience and to acquire new contacts.
