DMC attended the world’s largest industrial fair this past May. HANNOVER MESSE, held in Germany, brings together 150 companies from multiple industries to show their products, technologies, and applications. This year’s theme was digitalization and sustainability.
We joined the conference as a Siemens Solution Partner and joined Siemens at their booth – which displayed Siemens’ multi-discipline/multi-step demo and showed off a variety of different technologies, including their metal 3D printing, an additive manufacturing process to generate a lighter, stronger component of an electronic vehicle. We also brought one of our major California Siemens clients, Anaergia, to join in the conference and experience.
Our engineers arrived in Germany on Sunday and joined Siemens as they hosted a dinner at the Governor’s Mansion with great food. Throughout the trip, we joined Siemens for meals, excursions, and experiences.
The conference began Monday, May 30 and finished Friday, June 3. On Monday and Tuesday, we had a full day checking out the expansive Siemens booth and exploring the enormous conference.
Wednesday, we drove to Heidelberg, where we stayed for the second half of the trip. Along the way, we stopped at the Porsche museum (foreshadowing!) getting a chance to check out a slice of Porsche history. Following the day of travel, we joined Siemens for the White Ship Fleet Dinner Cruise.
Thursday, we started our day by visiting the Heidelberg castle via a tour of the old city.
Also on our busy Thursday, we did a tour of the Stuttgart facility where they make the Taycan, the first all-electric Porsche. We had a chance to participate in the Porsche Driving Experience, where they put us on a track and let us test the cars out ourselves. We started by putting the Taycan electric vehicles through a stunt course which included drifting and slaloming. For the finale, we got into 9-11s and got to do a Grand Prix (safely!) around the track.
After a week at the HANNOVER MESSE, we want to thank Siemens for hosting us and our clients. The event was insightful, and it was a pleasure joining them as a Siemens Solutions Partner. We look forward to joining them for this event and others in the future.
