The coronavirus pandemic has abruptly impeded the global economies’ development. First and foremost, the epidemic situation has significantly impacted traditional ways of doing business in most companies and institutions, including trade fair and exhibition organisers. Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki held the press conference on 27 May and announced that, starting 6 June trade shows and congresses can be held in Poland again. Organisers and exhibitors as well as expo visitors were longing for this favourable decision.
Not only do they find expos an ideal opportunity to convene, but first and foremost to learn about the industry’s latest developments and innovations.
METAL - all industry insiders consider the expo a part of the industry’s tradition. This year's event abounds with the latest technologies, machines and equipment designed for everyday use in foundries and casting houses. The largest international players, those who have long been active in this field of economy and industry convene and talk shop in the exhibition centre; every year Kielce welcomes companies from Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Slovenia, Great Britain, Spain, Turkey and China. The event has become a real bridge which brings east and west closer.
For years the METAL - the International Fair of Technologies for Foundry METAL has generated a great interest as the presentation stage for the latest technological solutions. This popularity has been demonstrated by METAL continuous development.
