Role Exhibitor



Metropolitan Solutions is the largest international platform presenting cross-industry technological solutions for urban infrastructures. Exhibitors showcase intelligent solution ideas for the urban challenges of the present and the future. It took a mere two years for Metropolitan Solutions to grow from a special exhibition into a full-fledged fair. In 2013 it is a standalone showcase that was run concurrently with HANNOVER MESSE at the Hannover Exhibition Centre.
Metropolitan Solutions showcases innovative strategic and technical solutions for all areas of urban supply, administration and infrastructure. The event brings planners and decision-makers from municipal government, administration, politics and business together with international infrastructure solution developers and suppliers. A “City of the Future” gives trade professionals a multifaceted experience and direct introduction to the relevant cross-industry technologies at HANNOVER MESSE.
Metropolitan Solutions, a platform for applications and solutions for the world’s big urban centres and megacities, has enjoyed strong growth since its premiere in 2011. In 2012 the debut event attracted 70 companies who exhibited on nearly 3,000 square meters of display space. The fair was housed in Hall 1, which not only provides space for new exhibits but also for the event’s innovative new “City of the Future” format.
