The German Association of Amusement Rides & Accessory Manufacturers (Verband der Deutschen Freizeit- und Vergnügungsanlagenhersteller e.V.) represents the interests of the manufacturers, service providers and suppliers in the entire attractions industry. One of the main objectives of this trade association is to showcase the high technology, safety and quality standards as well as the importance of German manufacturers and their production, by speaking and acting with one voice both nationally and internationally.
Nowadays, more than three quarters of all global attractions that are newly installed in any one year come from European production. The German manufacturers and designers of leisure and amusement attractions rank among the top players in this business sector. One of the main responsibilities of the association is to demonstrate the enhanced role of this important German industry.
