"Sustainability, digitalization and the climate-friendly transformation of manufacturing are our main topics at Hannover Messe 2024 - from the automation of future industries to ecological innovations in biologization. As the new CEO of Festo, I look forward to engaging in dialog with you on these topics."

With these words from Thomas Böck, who has been Festo's new CEO since January this year, we invite you to the Festo press conference at the Hannover Messe!

When?   Monday, April 22, 2024, from 12 - 1 p.m.

Where?  At the Festo stand in Hall 7 Stand D31

In their keynote speeches, Thomas Böck and Frank Notz, Member of the Management Board Sales, will explain which highlights await the visitors at the Festo booth this year. Frank Notz: "This will be a special press conference: for the first time live at our stand! I'll be talking about smart factories and AI as a huge booster for productivity and energy efficiency! I'll also show you how we are driving forward the concept of a circular economy in concrete terms: with green hydrogen and a closed-loop approach in the battery industry - from production to recycling. Be curious!"

Booth tour and exclusive interview opportunity

We invite you to take an informative booth tour from 12:30 pm. Alternatively, you can use the time of the booth tour for personal interviews - with Thomas Böck and Frank Notz. Jörg Kipper, General Manager Sales Cluster DACH at Festo, will also be available for expert discussions about the DACH market: "When I talk to our customers, one topic is always on the agenda: Sustainability! After the press conference, I look forward to talk about successful projects in various industry sectors - if you like even directly at an exhibition display."
