The organizers of Hannover Messe, undoubtedly the world's largest and most comprehensive manufacturing exhibition, presented a preview of its upcoming 2014 edition on Feb. 11 at the Radialsystem V hall in Berlin, Germany.

The fair will be held April 7-11 in its more than two dozen huge exhibition spaces in Hannover. However, the preview helped attendees to get an early look at some of the event's major innovations and exhibitors. All were focused on its primary “Integrated Industry—Next Steps” theme and the specific steps needed to bring the Smart Factory concept to life using the integrated tools of Industry 4.0, or a fourth industrial revolution driven by Internet-connected devices.
