Social Events

Meet the Industry and Welcome Reception

This special event is organized by VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen und Anlagenbau) and EMVA (European Machine Vision Association) in conjunction with DAGM and AUTOMATICA, with the special purpose to boost the synergy effects that are especially possible at this year's DAGM because of the unique combination of DAGM together with the AUTOMATICA fair. This will be an excellent occassion for participants to visit the fair just after having registered (when they receive their free AUTOMATICA ticket) and meet at the VDMA Booth 120 in Hall 1 of the New Munich Trade Fair Center, not far away from the registration site in Hall B0. Every DAGM registrant is encouraged to exploit this opportunity in order to meet representatives of industrial companies and foster important contacts. The event will be accompanied by a small reception sponsored by VDMA with drinks and snacks. It starts on Tuesday, 10. June, at 16:00 and is foreseen to end around 17:30, so that the participants can continue the party back in Hall B0 at the official Welcome Reception of DAGM 2008, starting at 18:00.


DAGM Dinner

The local organizers of DAGM 2008 are happy to announce the social event in the evening of June 12th, 2008, at the Königliche Hirschgarten. A bavarian buffet and various beer specialties will be offered.


The „Königliche Hirschgarten“ has been founded by Kurfürst Karl Theodor in 1780. Origininally it was used as a hunting area by the Royals, as it is located near the castle of Nymphenburg. Nowadays it is mainly used as a public park. Hirschgarten’s main attractions are the 2 hectare large deer garden and the beer garden. With its capacity of 8000 visitors the Augustiner Biergarten is referred to as the biggest one in Europe. Besides a variety of beer of Munich’s famous Augustiner brewery a large range of Bavarian specialties are offered.

The easiest way to get there from the city center is to take the Tramway 16 (direction Romanplatz) or 17 (direction Amalienburgstrasse) from the central railway station. Exit the tram at Steubenplatz. Signs will guide you to the beer garden, which is basically located at the end of Königsbauerstraße.
