Innovations in Production Technology – Machine Tools from Germany

The German Machine Tool Builders´ Association (VDW) is inviting participants to take part in its technology symposium in the US and Canada. Eleven premium German suppliers of machine tools will be using the symposium to present their latest production-related machines, services and solutions. If you are an expert from the automotive or supplier industry, the electrical and electronics sector, aviation, oil production (fracking) or medical technology, you will be sure to pick up plenty of new and interesting information. Taking place for the first time in a virtual format, it has the great advantage of allowing people from all over the US and Canada to access the specific aspects which interest them. They will also be able to make new contacts with suppliers by arranging individual B2B web meetings in the form of live chats in advance.
