To manufacturers and dealers, METAV is an international exhibition with tradition. Enjoying 93 per cent customer satisfaction, it forms a strong anchor in metalworking exhibition activities at the heart of one of the strongest economic areas in Europe. In 2018, METAV presented 562 exhibitors from 23 countries, with 26,753 visitors introducing their home flavours from about 61 countries. This regional appeal was also apparent in the composition of the visitors to the exhibition from abroad, with top places being taken by the Netherlands and Belgium.
The exhibition area of about 43,000 square metres offers not only day visitors a compact market overview, but also the variety and depth needed for visits of more than one day. With the largest conurbation just outside its doors, and backed by a strong tradition of metalworking and production, METAV offers as the exhibition of short ways a seamless portfolio for production technology companies in North Rhine-Westphalia and environs.
The visitors to METAV are distinguished by a high level of decision-making competence. 64 per cent of the trade visitors are included directly in the decision-making processes at their company, and 73 per cent of the exhibitors award good grades for the quality of their visitors. Traditionally a buyers’ exhibition, year-long exhibitors appreciate strong sales figures.
And last, but not least, the exhibition organisers present a convincing array of professional skills. These are applied in a close partnership between Messe Düsseldorf GmbH and the organiser VDW (Verein Deutscher Werkzeugmaschinenfabriken e.V.), with the whole profiting from the decades of experience of this powerful duo. Besides a foreign representation network safeguarding the optimal support for our European exhibitors contacts in Europe, all exhibitors benefit from an unlimited number of free trade visitor tickets included in the advertising flat rate.
No matter how many customers you are inviting or how many machines you are bringing with you, you are always on the safe side at METAV!
