    Information and dialog

    Our team handles all current media inquiries, press releases, interviews and statements. The VDA newsroom monitors the media situation and the debates on the social media channels. The digital editorial team prepares all topics for the websites and the company's own social media accounts. Our events team organizes general meetings and themed events for members and target groups. We inform members about current topics in the industries with newsletters and in direct conversations. This is also where all VDA publications, films, photos and graphics are created. The team manages the VDA Studio and is responsible for the VDA's design and branding. And finally, this is where responsibility for national and international communications for the IAA MOBILITY and IAA TRANSPORTATION lies.
