In addition, the conference, which was accompanied by workshops, made an excellent contribution to further education and offered participants insightful approaches to solutions and answers to current industry topics.

All participants enjoyed finally meeting face-to-face again and were happy to experience the event at the new location in Cologne: “It’s great to be back at the EMV! The event is the most important trade show for us in the industrial sector.

It is an integral part of our annual schedule; we haven't missed one event in the last 10-20 years either. Here we have met our partners and customers and had the space to exchange ideas. We have missed the trade fair very much in the last two years, because this is where the trade expertise comes together. We’re also very happy to have generated many leads that we can now follow up on. The congress and workshops are also very successful - a very rounded concept! If this show didn’t exist, we would be missing something,” commented Matthias Berger, Managing Director at Albatross Projects GmbH.

Sebastian Wessels, Senior Business Development Manager at Shieldex (Statex Produktions- und Vertriebs GmbH), further underlined the relevance of the EMV for the international community: “The special aspect of this show is the quality of the audience: the right people from the industry are here. We also feel the relevance of the fair in the international arena: some of our partners from Israel, Italy, Austria, Great Britain, the Benelux countries and from Poland also came here."

  • Simon Puls (Lenze SE)
  • Hannes Schreiber (Otto-von-Guericke-Universität)

“After three successful days at the congress of the EMV 2022, the four best contributions were awarded today. The participation of many young candidates was particularly pleasing. This makes the event the optimal platform for young engineers in particular to present their expertise and network with experts," reports Prof. Dr.-Ing. Heyno Garbe, Committee Chair of the EMV Cologne.

The next edition of the EMV will be held in Stuttgart, Germany from 28 – 30 March 2023.
