About the conference

Digitalisation, automation and disruption are increasingly changing the parameters of our daily collaboration. These developments pose key questions on how companies and employers can remain competitive in the future too.

Against this backdrop, the company organising the series of events known as Zukunft Personal, spring Messe Management GmbH, has collaborated with IG Metall as well as the trade show Hannover Messe to create the conference: "Future of Work in Industry".

IG Metall

IG Metall represents the interests of around 2.3 million employees from industry, trade and services in the metal, electrical, textile, clothing, wood and plastics sectors as well as the ITC sector. In addition to improving working and living conditions, the central goal of IG Metall is the qualification of employees, trainees, students and graduates. As a strong partner, IG Metall thus guarantees a direct link to industry.



Hannover Messe

The HANNOVER MESSE unites six leading fairs in one place: ComVac, Integrated Automation, Motion & Drives, Digital Factory, Integrated Energy, Industrial Supply and Research & Technology. The partner country for 2019 is Sweden.


Zukunft Personal

With the leading European fair “Zukunft Personal Europe” in Cologne and other events in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Russia and Turkey, the established industry platforms are catalysts for the future of HR management and the digitalisation of work.
