30th anniversary

DMAN has supported companies in building know-how and contacts for 30 years now. In this way we contribute to the success of our customers – while we also promote the foreign trade relations of the federal state of Lower Saxony.

It has always been our aspiration to convey not only the basics of corporate management and industry-specific expertise, but also the facts and implications of current trends and new technologies. It is therefore no coincidence that DMAN is taking up a highly topical topic for its anniversary: Artificial Intelligence (AI). 

We cordially invite interested specialists and executives to join our anniversary event:
