Dear Fellow Foundrymen,
It is indeed a great pleasure to welcome you all to the Garden City of India to celebrate the countries largest foundry conclave which is a mega event of our Institute – The 60th Indian Foundry Congress & Indian Foundry Exhibition(or whatever it is called). The event has gained importance and is increasing in size and quality over the years. The presence of international quality exhibition and conference centre at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre is apt venue to have the largest exhibition by IIF.
The formation of Asia Foundry Forum and the decisive role played by India in the formation has resulted in deciding India to be the venue for the 2nd Asia Foundry Forum. This has given an opportunity to interact with Asian giant and world leader in metal casting production, China among other countries. This forum will bring together 12 leading Asian countries who will share their Best practices for Sustainability and growth, which forms the main theme for all deliberations.
Indian foundry industry has successfully sustained the global melt down and has held its own to become globally the second largest producer of metal castings. The present international scenario also demands India to be vigilant to sustain and retain the position. If India has to move further and be a leader, Innovation is the only means and I congratulate the Organising Committee for a well thought out & appropriate theme -MOULDING SUCCESS THROUGH INNOVATION. The Technical deliberations will focus on the emerging techniques and technologies for further improving & optimizing Quality, Cost and Delivery.
There are several novel programs planned in this Congress and one such forum will be the STUDENT FORM. This Forum is one such attempt to showcase the foundry industry as a potential growth area for the student community. It is planned to invite students from the engineering colleges and have them participate in the interesting programs. The Young Core Group of the IIF is playing the pivotal role in this activity and I congratulate them on this idea. Apart from this, the congress will be hosting CEO Meet, Energy Forum and many more interesting programs to quench the intellectual thirst of the delegates. South India and Bangalore in particular, is famous for hospitality and delegates and guests will enjoy variety of entertainment and mouth watering cuisine to remember the event for ever.
I welcome you all to join and participate in this mega event.
