MEDIA-TECH Association Meeting & Networking Dinner
Mercure Hotel, Krefeld, Germany
September 19, 2017, 03.00 pm 

Dear MEDIA-TECH Members, Guests and Followers,

Following our successful MEDIA-TECH Conference that was focused on the amazing rebirth of the Vinyl record manufacturing business globally, the MEDIA-TECH Association will be moving forward with this hot topic by founding a new Vinyl Working Group at a special meeting & networking dinner that will be held in Krefeld, Germany on September 19, 2017.  

It is MEDIA-TECH’s pleasure to invite you to this historic event, as well as other professionals involved in the commercial and technical value chain of the Vinyl business (e.g., manufacturing, distribution, supply chain, logistics, trading, pressing plants, vendors, marketing experts, material suppliers, authoring, etc.).

Besides Vinyl, we will also examine market trends and future business outlook for all packaged media products, including CD, DVD and Blu-ray discs. Among the topics no doubt will be a interesting discussion of current market challenges and further consolidation within the optical media industry.

We look forward to seeing you soon in Krefeld!
