These events, held in Hannover and Munich, respectively, are some of the largest trade shows for users and designers of fluid power systems and components. Hannover Fair's Motion, Drive and Automation show brings together hundreds of fluid power component manufacturers, while bauma is perhaps the world's largest construction trade show, highlighting a large number of hydraulic and pneumatic manufacturers, as well as machines that use hydraulics to increase efficiency, power and control.
I won't be attending either event, but our publisher Michael Ference will and I hope he'll bring lots of photos and video to share with our readers. We invite you, too, to share photos, stories, etc. from the event if you're going. Feel free to share them on our facebook page.
Safe travels to all going to Germany.
