Foreign Trade 2017 at Hannover Messe

28.04.2017 Hannover

On the Wednesday of this year’s Hannover Messe the whole day was devoted to foreign trade, culminating in the presentation of the ‘Export Oscars’.

A turbulent week

From 24 to 28 April more than 6,500 exhibitors from all over the world, among them numerous Niedersachsen companies, showcased the latest industrial technologies at HANNOVER MESSE 2017 – this year’s main topic was digitalisation. The trade fair attracted around 200,000 visitors from home and abroad.

On Wednesday foreign trade was the single-focus topic at the Nord LB forum; the 14th Niedersachsen Foreign Trade Day headlined ‘markets in transition: successful export strategies’. Around 250 decision-makers from politics and business gathered information about current foreign trade developments in Great Britain, Turkey and Russia.

The culminating highlight was presentation of the Foreign Trade award, known as the ‘Export Oscar of the North’, which this year went to Fresh Breeze GmbH & Co.KG in the SME category and BMA Braunschweigische Maschinenbauanstalt AG from the large enterprise contenders.
