Deutsche Messe (the organizers of didacta 2018) and the Didacta Association and the Educational Media Association (as non-commercial collaboration partners and supporters) were highly pleased with the run of the show.
Education summit targets improvements with the long run in mind
"Our optimized concept for didacta featured a new site layout in Hannover and was extremely well received by visitors and exhibitors alike. We experienced a highly successful didacta 2018, where absolutely everything relevant to lifelong learning was covered at a single venue," commented Dr. Andreas Gruchow, the member of the Deutsche Messe Managing Board responsible for didacta 2018. "With over 100 exhibitors more than at the previous event, the didacta staged in Hannover showcased an array of groundbreaking innovations in the education sector. What’s more, didacta has become even more international, with exhibitors from around 50 nations taking part. The keen interest shown in didacta 2018 not only underscores our success as tradeshow organizers, but also demonstrates that education – essentially a 'raw material' for society – is a hot topic of great relevance to people. We are pleased that so many education professionals as well as members of government and solution providers have come to Hannover, and that we – together with, the Didacta Association and the Educational Media Association as our established partners – were able to demonstrate how this 'education summit’ can serve as a veritable laboratory and crucible for the future of education," added Gruchow.
