In addition, other VDMA member companies have their own stands at the exhibition. Elgar Straub, Managing Director of VDMA, said that the desire for German and European companies at the exhibition shows that the industry wants to get back to face-to-face meetings at fairs.

He added: “In addition, exhibitors are hoping for further important investment impetus
after a sharp drop in orders and sales due to the pandemic in 2020.”
