"Industry 4.0 meets Bank 4.0" at Hannover Messe

Hello. My name is Sweden. This is the motto of the Hannover Messe from 1st to 5th April 2019. As this year the partner country of the world-renowned industrial fair is Sweden. The fact that not only the Swedish industry is strong in the field of digitisation and automation, but also the banks, is demonstrated by SEB in the Swedish co-lab pavilion with a demo station and lectures.

SEB participates in the Swedish co-lab pavilion at the large industrial fair in Germany April 1st to 5th.

Bank 4.0 is about frictionless financial services that are fully integrated into digital processes, enabling entirely new business models. In the Swedish pavilion we will show, among other things, how robot-powered micropayments can drive sourcing strategies and how smart bank accounts can be allocated to connected devices.

SEB is a leading Nordic banking group with a strong belief that entrepreneurial minds and innovative companies are key in creating a better world. Ever since we were founded in 1856, we have been working in the service of enterprise to support their development and international outlook in a long-term perspective.
