Hannover Messe will take place from 17th to 21st April 2023 with a special emphasis on transformation of industry to climate-friendly processes. Topics around this focus area include, for example, hydrogen applications, software for reducing C02 emissions as well as the digitalization of industry.

The trade fair has a history extending over 70 years and despite a slightly reduced event during the 2022 event – the first post-Covid – is expecting to attract 4.000 exhibitors in 2023.

The current geopolitical situation is forcing industrial companies into examining their processes and energy supply in order to streamline and reduce costs. Finland has a lot to offer in this respect, and during the Hannover Messe 2023 Business Finland plans to showcase a group of companies who are offering technology and solutions to support this transformation. We will offer space at a joint Finland Pavilion together with accompanying trade promotion activities jointly with our local partners. Business Finland will have an industrial energy efficiency and zero carbon approach at the event, which will be reflected in our choice of hall for the joint stand.

The main objective of the Finland Pavilion is to be a functional show room for Finnish know-how. The stand will be an attractive meeting place for Finnish SMEs searching for distributors and partners. Companies also benefit from joint marketing efforts under the Finland brand umbrella.

Exhibition Explorer funding

Business Finland offers funding for SME and midcap companies for exhibitions. We award Exhibition Explorer grants to groups of at least four SME and/or midcap companies who are participating in an international B2B trade fairs that are held abroad. Funding requires at least four eligible applications for the same event. When four applications have arrived in Business Finland, we will process the applications. At least half of the aforementioned group of companies must be SMEs. The companies in the group need to have a true desire to grow and internationalize their business.

Exhibition Explorer can be applied for the stand packages. More information on the Exhibition Explorer funding.
