The Program

The HANNOVER MESSE Digital Days are thematically based on the content of the show. Industry 4.0, Artificial Intelligence, 5G, Smart Energy and Logistics 4.0 will be the focus of discussions to help meet the challenges of industrial transformation.

Indonesia, as Partner Country of HANNOVER MESSE 2020/2021, is also involved.

Hermes Award
One of the biggest highlights is the presentation of the HERMES AWARD. For the first time, this internationally coveted technology prize will be awarded digitally.

A jury chaired by Prof. Dr. Reimund Neugebauer, President of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, selected the winner from among numerous high-quality submissions.

The special situation of the pandemic shows once again how many questions around the topics of diversity and demographic change remain unresolved and that crisis situations in particular bring with them special challenges in the area of compatibility and equal career development.

WomenPower - as the leading career congress for women in industry - will also take place as an online event as part of this year's Digital Days. Here, inspiring women and men have their say; practical keynotes, interactive formats and panel discussions offer space for discussion and inspiration.
