In addition, METAV will be integrated into NORTEC. You can view the press release here.

The takeover of NORTEC by Messe Stuttgart and the cooperation with the VDW will make it possible to bundle competencies and to strengthen and further develop NORTEC. As experienced trade fair organizers, Messe Stuttgart and the VDW can contribute their existing industry know-how in a targeted manner. This cooperation can further strengthen the market position in northern Germany with neighbouring European countries.
