METALThe METAL fair held in Kielce alongside with the Aluminium & Nonfermet fair held simultaneously is the biggest fair event devoted to foundry engineering in Poland and one of the biggest events of this kind in Europe. 

The MATAL fair means 250 companies from all over the world - more than half of them are foreign companies or their commercial agencies in Poland; they present their offer on almost 3000 square metres of exhibition space. Last year the companies from Middle East - Iran made their debut at the Kielce fair devoted to foundry business sector. And it was another time when Targi Kielce hosted numerous Chinese companies which grasp the opportunity of entering European markets and presenting competitive products; the fair held in Kielce was recognised by Chinese entrepreneurs as a perfect opportunity to take such measures. The business insiders from Germany, Czech Republic, the USA, the Netherlands, Austria, France, Italy, Great Britain, Spain, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Slovakia, Scotland, Slovenia, Lithuania, Japan also presented their offer.

METALThe branch range of the fair, which is really extensive, is the answer to the trade fair exhibitors' and visitors' demand; and they will be able to find here everything what is necessary for foundry engineering. A few hundred exhibition stands of the companies from all over the world will be the showcase for specialised machines and appliances for foundry and non ferrous metal industries, pressure foundry furnaces, casting machine tools but not only; there will also be smaller hand and machine tools and software for foundry and casting houses. The exhibitors will also put on display raw materials, components and materials used in metallurgical processes, pressure casts of aluminium, magnesium or zinc. 

Last year's edition brought together over 2 500 registered specialists as well as journalists form 10 countries. It is estimated that 90% of fair visitors are the foundry and casting houses directors, production as well as marketing department heads and design office managers. Every year the METAL fair hosts the delegations of heads from international foundries and casting houses, Russia and Ukraine inter alia. This year's holiday of foundry engineering in Kielce will be supplemented with business sector conferences, and among them "The Solidification and Crystallization of Metals" or the symposium on "Crystalline Silica - NEPSI".
