The Future Hub
The Future Hub (Hall 11.0) is the ideal destination for today's and tomorrow's professionals! Constructed from resource-efficient materials and powered by green energy, the area sends a clear message of sustainability and energy efficiency. The plants used in the area will be made available to a school project after the fair, which will be supported throughout the year in Social Media.
