EMO Hannover 2017: Success Story

Indexrights is pleased to announce that this year’s EMO Hannover exhibition was a success! Although attending the Hannover Messe for the past few years, this was the company’s first time at the EMO exhibition this past September.

Our Indexrights booth proudly spotlighted 7 of Japan’s best in manufacturing and production industries. The booth also had five well-equipped interpreters on-hand that were collectively able to communicate in five different languages: English, Japanese, German, French, and Chinese.

The booth attracted many visitors every day of the exhibition, among them were business managers, presidents, engineers, students, and others from all walks of life. Visitors to the Indexrights booth came from all corners of the world and were eager to get information on Japanese ground-breaking technology, exchange business cards with company representatives, and not miss out on their copy of the Protechnology Japan Magazine.
