From 31 May to 3 June 2016, roughly 1,000 exhibiting companies from 44 countries (exhibitors from outside Germany: 55 percent) presented solutions for efficient and intelligent management of logistics chains. During the four days of the show, visitors saw for themselves that the intelligent warehouse is already reality. Stephan Weil, Premier of Lower Saxony, opened the trade fair. "CeMAT demonstrated once again that it is the only fair in the world with such a high density of product innovations already in practical use. This secures CeMAT’s leading status within the intralogistics industry. The internationality of exhibitors and visitors is unique. The topics software and Industrie 4.0 took center stage in the presentations of practically all exhibitors," said Dr. Andreas Gruchow, member of the managing board at Deutsche Messe. "CeMAT is the world’s most important trade fair for intralogistics. The CeMAT motto 'Smart Supply Chain Solutions' was wisely chosen because it shows how future logistics processes can be automated and controlled," said Dr. Christoph Beumer, Chairman of the CeMAT Executive Committee, Vice-Chairman of the Steering Committee of the German Logistics Association (BVL), and Chairman and CEO of the BEUMER Group. "Due to the very special roll that logistics IT plays, it was a big point of emphasis at the fair. CeMAT 2016 showcased how our industry solves challenges and creates added value."
