The trade fair Microtechnology shows the large topics of Hannover Fair such as energy, automation and mechanical engineering on a small scale: At the Product Market "Micro, Nano & Materials", 60 companies and institutes present products of the future technologies from micro fuel cells over nano-structures for solar technology up to micro assembly. The joint pavilion is organized by IVAM Microtechnology Network.
From April 16 to 20, the Microtechnology/Hannover Fair shows the latest trends in research and industry. The good economic situation is reflected in a high demand: "Considerably more enterprises will present themselves compared to last year, which has already been very successful", says IVAM's managing director Dr. Uwe Kleinkes. Altogether, 200,000 visitors are expected to come to Hannover Fair. The last booths of the popular fair are currently being sold.
