EMO Hannover 2013: more visitors, more business, more international drawing power

EMO Hannover 2013 came to a successful close on Saturday, 21 September. From 16 to 21 September, over 2,100 exhibitors from 43 different countries were on hand in Hannover to showcase their innovations to industrial users from around the world under the event's keynote slogan of 'Intelligence in Production'. Over the six days of EMO, the Hannover event attracted a total of just under 145,000 trade visitors from over 100 different nations. Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, the Netherlands and Russia topped the attendance figures for the European continent. By a very wide margin, China accounted for the largest number of visitors from Asia, followed by Japan, Taiwan and India. EMO Hannover 2013 succeeded again in covering the entire bandwidth of the global machine tool market. Visitors were particularly interested in solutions for boosting energy and resource efficiency, as well as user-friendly equipment and the intelligent integration of machines - in addition to the evergreen themes of cutting manufacturing costs and increasing flexibility. The next EMO will be staged from 5 to 10 October 2015 in Milan, under the motto "Let's build the future."
