Thomas Fritsch, Chief Editor

As every year in the second week of September, the President of the Slovenian Foundrymen Society Msci Dipl.Ing. Mirjam Jan-Blazic and her team invite you to the International Foundry Conference in Portoroz

This time, the 63rd IFC will take place on 14 and 15 September 2023. The opening reception will be held the evening before on 13 September 2023 at the Georgios Cultural Centre in Piran.

The IFC in Portoroz has a firm place in the series of top-class events, which is due on the one hand to the outstanding commitment and hospitality of the organizers and on the other hand to the always excellent list of speakers with interesting lectures. In addition, the participants can expect a wide range of products and services from about 40 exhibiting companies and, of course, the pleasant social program in picturesque Portoroz.

The event is also supported this year by the scientific committee of leading universities for foundry and metallurgy.

Let's look forward together to interesting days in Portoroz and take the chance to meet experts from all over Europe.

Here you can find the current program for the 63rd IFC Portoroz:
