After close consultation with exhibitors and partners, Messe Düsseldorf, its subsidiary Messe Düsseldorf Moscow and its Russian partner Metal-Expo are postponing Metallurgy Russia and Litmash Russia. The trade fairs for metallurgy and international foundry technology, foundry supplies and casting will now take place from 21 to 23 June 2022 at Moscow's central Expocentr exhibition center - two weeks after their scheduled date.
"Due to the pandemic, there have been numerous postponements of trade fair events across countries in the industry. The new date, which has been fixed after consultation with all trade fair partners, takes this into account and offers our exhibitors the opportunity to optimally coordinate their participation in the leading trade fairs for the Russian market with their participation in events for other country markets. The early announcement of the postponement gives all participants the ability to reliably plan, which is of course particularly important to us. In any case, we are all very much looking forward to seeing you again in Moscow," explains Friedrich-Georg Kehrer, Global Portfolio Director at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH.
Despite the tense economic-political situation, there is great interest in modern machinery and plants, equipment and solutions in Russia for the casting and processing industries as well as for metallurgical processes. There is also still a need for investment in the metallurgy and foundry technology sectors in neighboring countries. At Metallurgy Russia and Litmash Russia, trade visitors can obtain comprehensive information on technological innovations and trends covering the entire spectrum of 2 metals, foundry technology, accessories and castings. The communication platform, which is unique in Russia, also invites all trade fair participants to network at its "METAL PLAZA" business zone. Round-table discussions focusing on developments in foundry technology offer space for exchanging ideas in a professional atmosphere.
German companies can benefit from federal funding
The trade fair will once again feature an official German joint company participation, supported by the Federal Ministry for Economics Affairs and Climate Action (BMWi), the German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA) and the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry (AUMA). By participating, companies can present themselves jointly under the "Made in Germany" brand in the Russian growth market and benefit from attractive special conditions. The joint participation is organized by Messe Düsseldorf.
At the international level, Metallurgy Russia and Litmash Russia will be supported by the industry associations CEMAFON (The European Foundry Equipment Suppliers Association) and CECOF (The European Committee of Industrial Furnace and Heating Equipment Associations).
Around 200 companies from 11 countries, including industry players such as Eges, Heinrich-Wagner Sinto, ASK Chemicals and Inductotherm, took part in the top Russian events in 2019. More than 4,500 trade visitors came to the exhibition stands to find out about exhibitors' innovations and trends. All target group industries were represented at the trade fairs: Metallurgy, Metalworking, Mechanical Engineering, Energy, Oil & Gas and Construction.
The Messe Düsseldorf Group has been successfully organizing trade fairs worldwide for metal production, metal processing, iron, steel, wire, cable and pipes for many years, which are marketed under the umbrella brand "metal flow ALLIANCE".
