Reading time: min

With a new record number of visitors, EUROGUSS concluded after three exciting days on 18 January 2018.

Snow, rain, storms, and the associated traffic chaos in large parts of Germany and Europe could not stop the 15,000 trade visitors (2016: 12,032 trade visitors) from coming to Nuremberg for the diecasting trade fair. At the same time, the internationality of the trade visitors has once again increased significantly. At 641 exhibitors‘ stands, they learned about innovations and trends in the industry.

The topics of e-mobility, structural components, application-specific alloys, and additive manufacturing were discussed at many booths. The International German Diecasting Day, which took place for the first time in the NCC Ost area, was well attended.

Thomas Krüger, Managing Director of the Verband Deutscher Druckgießereien (VDD), concludes: "The expectations of our members at this year's trade fair were far exceeded. The quantity and, more importantly, the quality of the discussions with trade visitors could not have been better. Many founders have written orders along the entire die casting value chain at the fair. EUROGUSS was the perfect prelude to a successful 2018 German die-casting business."

Timo Würz, Secretary General of CEMAFON (The European Foundry Equipment Suppliers Association) sums it up: "EUROGUSS 2018 was again the right marketplace at a good time. It will further boost the business situation of European die casting machine manufacturers."

"The mood in the exhibition halls was very positive," says Christopher Boss, Event Manager EUROGUSS, NürnbergMesse. "The three exhibition halls were sold out to the last square meter. For the next EUROGUSS we will open a fourth hall so that the fair can continue to grow."

More than half of the 641 exhibitors of EUROGUSS came from abroad (54 percent). In addition to Germany (297 exhibitors), the top European exhibitor countries are Italy (128 exhibitors), Turkey (23 exhibitors), Spain (19 exhibitors), Austria and the Czech Republic (14 exhibitors each).
