France’s Industry of the Future companies resoundingly present at Hannover Messe

PRESS RELEASE - 24/04/17

 For the second consecutive year, France will be represented at Hannover Messe, from April 24-28 2017, in Hall 8 dedicated to “Digital Industry”, to show off the industrial know-how and creativity of French companies to international audiences, under the banner Créative Industry.

It was in Hannover that the Créative Industry banner was first unveiled, the culmination of a closely-concerted effort with Alliance Industrie du Futur (AIF – National Network for Manufacturing Innovation) to showcase French industrial technology innovation through 7 technologies: digitization of the value chain, the role of people, new materials and composites, additive manufacturing, monitoring and control, energy efficiency, automation, workflow management and robotics.

Won over by the success of the 2016 edition, the Grand Est Region and leading corporation Orange Business Services have confirmed participation in the fair again, at the same space.

For this 2nd edition, 2 new regions (Hauts-de-France and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes) will be joining the Grand Est Region in the Créative Industry Area, a sprawling 350 m² space headed by Business France/AIF. Each region will be taking part alongside its solutions suppliers (see detailed list below).

SMEs SAV RESO and Optim Data, which recently earned the AIF’s Technological Showcase label, will also be found at the Creative Industry space, as well companies AMA (connected glasses), Diota (augmented reality solutions) Monixo (predictive maintenance), and Cetim. In total, more than 70 French companies of all sizes will be able to show their capacity to provide innovative solutions, all along the value chain.  

  • With the support of its international network, Business France will put together 4 days with 4 countries that have set out an Industrial Strategy for the Future, including Germany, the United States and China.  The aim is to create opportunities for interaction between French exhibitors and major principals or SMEs from the featured countries.  The French-German day, designed in partnership with SAP France and Bosch France, will offer the opportunity to extend the cooperation on the Industry of the Future, officialised in Hanover in 2016: digital standardisation, usage cases, scenarios and R&D platforms. The French-American Day, designed in partnership with the US Department of Commerce, will offer French and U.S. companies the opportunity to participate in one-on-one B2B meetings.
