EUROGUSS 2022 would have launched the year’s activities for the die-casting industry: Now, the event that was originally scheduled for 18-20 January 2022 has been postponed because of a further dynamic upswing in Covid-19 infections, which may lead to changes in legislation affecting events at short notice. In close consultation and at the request of exhibitors, partners and industry associations, NürnbergMesse has therefore decided to postpone EUROGUSS 2022 to 8-10 June 2022. EUROGUSS, the International Trade Fair for Die Casting Technology, Processes and Products, will then take place at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg with its customary scope and no change in hall layout. There is, however, still one highlight in the gap between now and June: On 18 January 2022, the European Die Casting Award will be presented, and will be live-streamed along with an industry talk with partners of interest from the die-casting community.
“By postponing EUROGUSS 2022 we are taking on board the concerns of many exhibitors and industry participants with regard to holding an in-person event in January 2022,” says Christopher Boss, Director EUROGUSS at NürnbergMesse. “The political imponderables and the dynamic infection numbers in particular, and the resulting travel bans for many visitors raised doubts about whether it would be possible to meet exhibitor and visitor expectations. We therefore decided to hold EUROGUSS 2022 at a time in the summer when infection numbers in previous years have always been at a much lower level. We are looking forward to being able to welcome the international die-casting industry to Nuremberg in June.
“I would like to thank our partners, the professional associations and our exhibitors for their constructive feedback in recent weeks, as well as their solid commitment to EUROGUSS as the home of the die-casting industry. Now it is full steam ahead with the planning for June. In principle, however, all the plans will roll over unchanged, since almost all the exhibitors agreed to the change of date. The supporting programme and its highlight, the Die Casting Conference, will take place at the same time in June, since there is still a huge need to interact directly, along with extremely strong interest in holding an in-person trade fair.”
