According to the VDMA survey, energy and material efficiency were the topics in which customers showed highest interest. 72 per cent of the respondents said that it was a topic of high interest for the customers. Material efficiency ranked number two in the list.
Visitors from Bangladesh, India, Mexico, Pakistan and Turkey showed high demand for VDMA solutions. The company is continuing its series of conferences in dedicated markets.
