The VDAI represents and articulates the joint interests of the German coin-op manufacturers towards the German Federal Parliament, the Federal Ministries and the public. The VDAI provides information for its members about economic trends at home and abroad, statutory matters of importance and developments in parliament. The VDAI supports its members. For example: It handles technical matters requiring a Technical Committee and also the coordination of public relation questions in a PR Committee. The members of the VDAI are informed about economic facts, trends on the coin-op machine market and through customer behaviour statistics provided by the association. Since 1980 the VDAI organizes IMA, one of the world’s large international trade fairs for coin-op amusement and vending Machines. IMA takes place in Düsseldorf since 2007. As part of its public relation work, the VDAI provides information to the press, politicians and multipliers. The VDAI has compilations of material on matters relating to the coin-op industry, on different legal questions and on problematic gambling behaviour. The VDAI is supporting the organization of the Self-Regulating Committee for Video Games (ASK), which was voluntary founded in 1982. ASK examines coin-operated video machines concerning the legal point of view relating to the protection of minors. Since 2013 the tasks of the committee are regulated by law.
