Frankfurt – The next METAV 2010 is due to be held from 23 to 27 February 2010 in Düsseldorf. In opting for these dates, the Machine Tool Builders’ Association (VDW) will be staging the first trade fair event of the year for the whole metalworking branch at a truly “early bird” time slot.
“Two important international trade fairs for the branch are set to take place in Central Europe in 2010,” Dr. Detlev Elsinghorst, President of the METAV explained.

“At METAV as the first event, exhibitors have a great opportunity to bring their innovations onto the market in really good time. Since customers’ investment budgets will by then not yet have been planned down to the last detail, exhibitors will have a valuable edge on potential contract commissions.”
METAV, the International fair for manufacturing and automation, addresses the entire investment goods industry. Trade visitors primarily hail from the machine and plant construction sectors, and the automotive and automobile supplies industries. These are, by a long way, the major production technology user sectors. And they face up to fierce international competition. It is only by means of intelligent and efficient manufacturing technology that they can maintain and extend their lead worldwide. At the METAV in Düsseldorf, they can simultaneously glean specific information on new solutions while also using the trade fair as an important and highly practical business platform for their investment decisions.
The METAV is one of the most important technology showcases for manufacturing technology in even-numbered years. It exhibits the entire spectrum for industrial production. Main emphases amongst the goods on offer are on machine tools for cutting and forming, manufacturing systems, precision tools, automated material flow, computer technology, industrial electronics, and parts and accessories.
At the last METAV in 2008, more than 840 international exhibitors presented their products and services. They attracted in excess of 52 000 trade visitors from 41 countries to Düsseldorf. In percentage figures, this was an increase of 8 per cent in comparison to the previous event.
