Festo hosts state-of-the-art Virtual Exhibitions
Over 11 000 attendees, 31 000 live streams watched, 1712 attendees at our 250 m2 stand at the same time – the Festo Virtual Exhibition which took place on the 15th – 16th July 2020 has set new benchmarks for exhibitions. The exhibition was hosted in place of the Festo stand at the Hannover Messe, which takes place in Germany - one of the biggest exhibitions in the world. For the first time, industry professionals in Africa got an opportunity to attend this renowned exhibition at no cost and experience digitalisation as they never have before.
Visitors got to experience:
We provided visitors with an array of chatrooms where they were able to network and exchange information with other industry professionals. Like any other exhibition, industry professionals had the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with fellow business partners and build networks virtually.
Festo specialists from all corners of the world were available from 09:00 – 18:00 to answer all questions in real time.
Our keynote speakers presented on some of the main topics in automated production such as digitalisation, climate protection, demographic changes and individualised production.
Our industry experts conducted a tour of the four Festo industry segment booths; Electric, Process and Pneumatic Automation as well as Didactic. Attendees saw the latest products and upgrades that were introduced by Festo to increase customer efficiency. In addition to the industry segments, we took a look at some of the latest nature-inspired Bionic inventions. Each booth had specialised experts live on standby to assist in answering questions brought forth by attendees.
