METAV 2022 moves production technology back into focus
After four eventful days at the trade fair, METAV 2022 closed its doors. Dr. Wilfried Schäfer, Managing Director of the organizer VDW (German Machine Tool Builders' Association): "The March date was impossible to keep due to the pandemic, which is why we were forced to postpone to June. We have seen a METAV under more difficult conditions that cannot be measured by the usual standards. We are doing everything we can to bring METAV 2024 back to its usual level."
As a showcase for innovation and new thinking, METAV provides an opportunity to experience solutions from an unusual perspective and to derive added value for one's own operations from them. Almost every tenth exhibitor in 2022 looked back on a young company history.
Every other METAV visitor was part of his company's management in 2022, every third had a concrete investment project in mind, and almost every fourth is planning an investment or has solidified his investment intention as a result of his METAV visit.
