Hannover / Neuhausen a. d. F. – The Hannover Messe planned for the end of April has been postponed. In anticipation of the continuing spread of the Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), the organizers announced this decision today. With around 6,000 exhibitors and 200,000 visitors, Hannover Messe is one of the world’s largest trade fairs for automation and energy technology. The sensor and automation specialist Balluff also planned to be on site as an exhibitor and present product innovations and solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Despite the rescheduling of Hannover Messe, Balluff will offer all interested parties the ideal contact point for all aspects of automation by holding a virtual exhibition.

Product introductions and keynotes as online presentations

„The customer is in the center of our interest. We do not want due to the actual Corona situation to miss the chance to inform our customers about current innovations and solutions,” states Florian Hermle, Executive Managing Director of Balluff. By organizing a virtual exhibition, the sensor and automation specialist turns circumstances to its own advantage and offers an adequate replacement for the postponed Hannover Messe. At end of April, Balluff will therefore present the product highlights of the Hannover Messe to customers and interested parties via an online event platform. Within various keynotes and application sessions, Balluff experts will present new products and solutions and also highlight current topics concerning the Industrial Internet of Things. „We position ourselves as a future-orientated company that consistently uses the op-portunities offered by digitalization to create more value for its customers”, says Hermle.
