SPOTLIGHTMETAL is making online visitors hungry for more


NürnbergMesse and Vogel Business Media launch light metal casting partnership
SPOTLIGHTMETAL content represents the entire value chain
Online platform with networking opportunities for the metal casting industry

SPOTLIGHTMETAL is off to a flying start: The collaboration between the Würzburg-based specialist media house Vogel Business Media and NürnbergMesse started just a couple of weeks ago, but has already attracted a great deal of attention both on- and offline. For Matthias Bauer, Spokesman executive board of Vogel Business Media, the formula for success is simple: “With this new international portal we want to shed light on the technical and economic opportunities and challenges in light metal casting and offer support and orientation to players in this segment. I am looking forward to a successful partnership with NürnbergMesse.” According to Peter Ottmann and Dr Roland Fleck, CEOs of the NürnbergMesse Group, this added value offers outstanding synergies: “Our international fairs and digital platforms complement each other perfectly. SPOTLIGHTMETAL is a great example of how industry topics can be portrayed in a practical manner, and it is whetting visitors’ appetites for the next fair.”

In January 2018, NürnbergMesse and the Würzburg-based specialised media house Vogel Business Media launched the new, international portal “SPOTLIGHTMETAL”, which is dedicated to the world of light metal casting. The English-language portal covers the entire value chain from suppliers and service providers – such as machine and plant manufacturers – to foundries as well as sales and customer markets, especially automotive, electronics, medical technology and machinery.

With the leading European event for the die-casting industry EUROGUSS and other international offshoots in China, India and soon in Mexico, NürnbergMesse has been offering a prestigious event for the die-casting sector and for all relevant market players for 14 years. Vogel Business Media has a high level of expertise in digital marketing as well as a diverse portfolio of digital products for the B2B market. In addition, Vogel Business Media’s specialist titles such as ‘Automobil Industrie’ and ‘Konstruktionspraxis’ offer access to the sales markets of the light casting industry.
