For eight years, the “Long Night of the Industry“ has been offering to industrial enterprises a platform to present themselves as an economic factor of their region, and allowed the general public to peep behind otherwise closed doors. With Hamburg’s Minister of the Economy, Transport and Innovation Frank Horch as patron, the event is jointly organised by the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, the Industry Association Hamburg, and the Employer’s Association NORDMETALL.

On 12 November, a total of 20 industrial companies will be opening their doors in the evening. Many of them, including Siemens and Ingredion Germany, have already been participating in previous editions of the “Night of the Industry”. Also loyal to the event stays Bode Chemie as main sponsor. 2015’s two newcomers are the oil factory H&R Ölwerke Schindler and skin care specialist Beiersdorf.
