A Trade Fair increases its popularity through exclusive industry news 

The Hannover Messe (@hannover_messe) is the world’s biggest trade fair for industrial technology and production. More than 5,000 international companies use this opportunity to present their innovations in fields like manufacturing, robotics, and the energy industry. 

Campaign objective

The goal of the campaign was to increase engagement and boost awareness of the Hannover Messe. Before the fair, potential visitors and people interested in technology were informed about new innovations and solutions. This engagement led to a dialogue between exhibitors and fans of the fair about new trends and strengthened the networking within the community.


The target audience were primarily experts, disruptors, and also junior staff in the industry and engineering sectors in Central Europe and Mexico (the partner country of the fair in 2018).

— Timo Janizki, Social Media Manager, Deutsche Messe AG
