Press & Public Relations

As the representative body for the German machine tool industry, the VDW provides information on the sector in Germany, its position on the global market, international competition, and the association’s multifarious activities. Whether it’s for journalists, sectoral experts or the interested public: we utilise multifaceted media channels and edit news so as to ensure that all target groups receive the information they want in a comprehensible form.

In blog posts and specialist articles , the VDW’s experts and guest authors report on current developments, the latest news, and interesting events from the world of metalworking. Our press releases keep you informed about the VDW’s activities, plus our METAV and EMO Hannover trade fairs. If you would like to follow our association and or our fairs on social media channels, we have provided for you an overview of the channels we utilise.

The bandwidth of our publications ranges from market and annual reports, plus commemorative volumes, all the way through to the sectoral report, our monthly sectoral magazine exclusively for members of the VDW. And if you should need high-resolution press photos for your coverage, we will be pleased to provide you with these as well.
