With a theme park Industry 4.0, METAV will take place on 20-24 February, 2018.

Besides the areas for quality, additive manufacturing, moulding and medical, the classical keynotes are still comprehensively represented: machine tools, manufacturing systems, high-precision tools, automated material flow, computer technology, industrial electronics and accessories.

The fair will also be spotlighting the topic of Industry 4.0 with a dedicated theme park. “Under the aegis of the METAV 2018, we shall once again be devoting a separate keynote focus to the digital transformation,” says Dr. Wilfried Schäfer, the VDW’s Executive Director. “In the case of Industry 4.0, the sense of optimism is almost tangible. But in view of the digital transformation, many mid-tier companies are also still looking for new solutional approaches. The METAV 2018 will be offering important food for thought here.” And the congresses and specialist forums planned to coincide with the fair, featuring examples of best practice, will also provide fresh impetus for state-of-the-art manufacturing solutions.

To coincide with the registration phase, an extensive advertising campaign will be launched for the METAV 2018. Online registration will be possible as from mid-April at www.metav.com. The registration deadline for exhibitors is 31 August 2017.
