let’s talk
about innovation

After five packed days in mid-June the first METAV web sessions came to a successful end. We have recorded over 80 exhibitors of METAV 2020 reloaded, almost 100 presentations, around 1,600 registered participants from more than 60 countries with over 5,000 session registrations. In interesting and varied presentations, they have experienced what is new and important in metalworking: machines, software, components, services. For those who could not attend, all presentations are available as videos in the following agenda. Take the opportunity to inform yourself afterwards and to get in direct contact with the companies.

By the way: The next METAV web sessions will take place on Tuesday, 6 October 2020.
