Boasting 562 exhibitors from 23 countries on about 43,000 square metres of exhibition area, METAV has become a strong anchor in metalworking exhibition activities. Whether managing director, board member, department head, or skilled worker, no matter the production field, everybody will be convinced by the clear structures of offers, short ways, and the opportunities for intensive dialogue at METAV, in addition to the seamless market overview it presents.
The traditional strength of METAV lies in its full treatment of all relationships in metalworking production. And the scientific significance of the investment platform METAV is enhanced further by technological networking and intermeshing and the steering of up- and downstream processes. Machine tools, production and process automation, and precision tools of all shapes and sizes form the brand core that also extends the focus on insights into their technologies within the four dedicated Areas.
Trade visitors value the extensive portfolio of innovative solutions for the production of the future. In addition to expert talks, the theme park Industry 4.0 area also hosts a great many field-based presentations focusing on subjects like IT security, automation, robotics, and cloud applications. This is genuine added value that METAV offers skilled workers and experts in the sector to establish contacts, learn the latest, and deepen their own know-how.
