The countdown is on – companies from all over the world can now register for the four trade fairs GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST. The leading international trade fairs with congress and high-calibre programme of side events for foundry technology, castings, metallurgy and thermo process technology will be held in Düsseldorf from 12 to 16 June 2023.
New technologies, rising demands made on energy efficiency and the desire for a careful handling of resources: the changes occurring along the entire value chain for industries do not stop short of the global foundry, metallurgy and thermo process technologies either. How can enterprises manufacture in a sustainable and efficient way? How can they connect their plants better, optimise production processes while maintaining their social responsibility at the same time? Which fundamental technological changes exist in the various branches of the metal industry? How do foundries and the metal-working industry remain attractive employers for professional talents compared to other sectors of industry? These and other questions will be discussed by sector experts at the most relevant international communication platform GMTN 2023.
“Our trade fair quartet is well known as the gateway to the world market. It is only here in Düsseldorf that decision-makers, experts, supplier to, and users in these industries can obtain a complete overview, exchange ideas and design trends for the markets of the future at not one but four trade fairs,” explains Friedrich-Georg Kehrer, Global Portfolio Director at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. “We all benefit from investment in new, green technologies; this is also reflected by our ecoMetals campaign, which has long been a model for success and has become an integral part of the “Bright World of Metals”. Eligible for participation in the campaign are all exhibitors who take such environmental aspects as resource savings, energy efficiency and climate neutrality particularly into account for their innovations. These topics especially appeal to trade visitors – which, of course, also holds true for the young talents so important to these industries. With our trade fairs we can therefore also make a certain contribution to fighting skilled labour shortage,” says Friedrich-Georg Kehrer in view of the coming events.
Plants, products, forward-looking solutions and concepts revolving around foundries, iron, steel and non-ferrous metal industries, machinery suppliers, mechanical engineering or the automotive industry: every four years companies fly their flags at the trade fairs on site in Düsseldorf. From 17 January 2022 exhibitors will be able to register online for the four trade fairs under the following links:
