The world's leading industrial technology trade show, Hannover Messe, will take place April 25-29, 2016 in Hannover, Germany. For the first time in history, the United States is the official Partner Country. With 200,000 attendees from over 70 international markets, Hannover Messe provides unequaled access to both investors and buyers interested in industrial technology and manufacturing. A strategic partnership between the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Commercial Service, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, SelectUSA, the U.S. Embassy in Germany, and Deutsche Messe, will ensure HANNOVER MESSE 2016 will be an outstanding event.

Information about the SEDC Opportunity:


The SEDC will be purchasing a booth in the U.S. Investment Pavilion at the Hannover Messe to showcase the business location opportunities for our region. We are purchasing their largest booth (platinum, at 260 sq.ft.). In this space, we will have the opportunity for 10 people to work the exhibit. The fee to participate will be $3,500 USD (versus the smallest booth, which is about $9,000 USD and includes 2 passes). The exhibit will be branded as “The American South,” drawing in individuals interested in our region of the United States as a location for business investment.
