  Exhibitors at HANNOVER MESSE, together with the event organizers at Deutsche Messe, have reached a strongly positive conclusion about this year's event, saying that the world's leading industrial trade fair demonstrated that the technologies for competitive and, at the same time, climate-neutral industrial production are already available. The next step, they said, involved the need to make consistent use of all the available solutions.
