From 20 to 24 February 2018, the METAV 2018 will be held in the Düsseldorf Exhibition Halls. The 20th International Exhibition for Metalworking Technologies will be continuing the successful concept adopted for the preceding event. The thematic expansion to incorporate specific areas for quality, additive manufacturing, moulding and medical was acclaimed by exhibitors and visitors alike. The fair will also be spotlighting the topic of Industry 4.0 with a dedicated theme park. 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.

Success speaks for itself!
The figures speak for themselves: Over 600 exhibitors and nearly 36,000 visitors testify yet again to the wide reaching appeal of METAV. 93% of the visitors were satisfied with the exhibition. The deep reaching changes that particularly Industry 4.0 is causing in the landscape of production technology are made manifest at METAV with direct reference to the four Areas.
Diversity of product portfolio
There is praise for the exemplary quality of the product portfolios, diversity, and organisation at METAV, and there is a clear upward trend in exhibitor and visitor numbers. Special emphasis is given to visitor quality and growing internationality. The new concept could appeal to many new visitor target groups, confirmed by the high number of first-time visitors.
