Trade Fair for Manufactures + Campus for SMEs

Shutdown until 17 April

As many other companies, Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH cannot avoid being affected by the spread of coronavirus. To slow down the pandemic, protect the health of our staff as much as possible, and make the best possible use of the period during which we are unfortunately unable to host any events, we have decided to shut down all operations from 6 until and including 17 April. We will be back to serve you from Monday 20 April. Thank you very much for understanding. And please, stay healthy!

Sincerely yours, Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH

As an industry gathering and select sales and networking platform, NORTEC presents all links of the value added chain of the manufacturing industry. NORTEC 2020 will highlight the megatrend Industry 4.0 and its significance for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).

New exhibition concept

NORTEC makes progress tangible and comprehensible

An innovative concept of fair trade and campus turns a visit to NORTEC 2020 into an educational journey that leaves no question unanswered. NORTEC is where decision - makers, buyers and users meet experts who speak the language of medium – sized businesses. The trade fair for production focuses on the latest technologies, systems and services for production- and manufacturing.

We look forward to seeing you there!
