Christopher Relyea, President of Columbus, Ohio
Michael DeRosso, Sr. Engineering Technologist of Houston, Tex
The Hannover Messe (HM; English: Hanover Fair) is the world’s biggest industrial fair. It takes place on the Hanover fairground in Hanover, Germany. Typically, there are about 6,500 exhibitors and 250,000 visitors. The Hannover Messe started in 1947 in an undamaged factory building in Laatzen, south of Hanover. Said Dean Arvanitis, Director of Marketing for Rittal, “Hanover is certainly a special event for Rittal. In fact, we’re one of only two companies to have a permanent exhibit in the facility that stands year-round.”
“Engineers love going to Hannover to get a first look at what’s coming up that’s new, and we understand that not everyone here in the U.S. will get to travel to Germany for the show. Our contest gives a select few the opportunity to see the newest products for their facilities, learn about trends and spend focused time with an industry leader like Rittal.”
These four winners will have all expenses paid to join Rittal at Hannover Messe from April 25-29. Winners were chosen at random from thousands of online contest entries. Along with time at the Hannover Fair, the contest winners will be hosted by Rittal executives on a behind-the-scenes tour of the company’s local, automated manufacturing facilities.
Rittal Corp., headquartered in Schaumburg, Ill., is the U.S. subsidiary of Rittal GmbH & Co. KG and manufactures industrial and IT enclosures, racks and accessories, including climate control and power management systems for industrial, data center, outdoor and hybrid applications.
