The preparations for this year’s traditional 61st International Foundry Conference 2021 and foundry exhibition in Portoroz in the Slovene Littoral between 15 and 17 September 2021 are drawing to a close. The deadline for the registration of lectures was 30 June. Registered lectures for the conference come from 12 countries.
36 lectures during two days – Exhibition - Meet and greet – Foundrymens night
On the first day of the 61st IFC, on 16 September, the ten plenary lectures will be introduced, while the next day, the rest of the 36 lectures will be outlined in three distinct sections and in the form of posters.The contents and timeline of the lecture programme of the Conference will be published by the end of July at the website of the Slovenian Foundrymen Society.
There are still a few spots available for exhibitors at this year’s IFC in Portoroz. Just like in previous years, registrations for exhibitors conclude at the end of July. The expected or maximum number of exhibitors is limited at approx. 40. The registration deadline for other participants, who wish to participate in the Conference and exhibition as visitors and spectators, is 10 September 2021.
On the night before the opening of the 61st IFC, on 15 September, the traditional meet-and-greet for Conference and exhibition participants will be held in the ancient coastal town of Piran. After the first working day, on 16 September, a foundrymen’s night on the coast in Portorož follows.
After a difficult year of social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visitors will have a series of excellent opportunities to connect with other professionals from the sector, which was sorely missed during the previous year. As the organizer of the international foundry event, the Slovenian Foundrymen Society will be responsible for making certain that Portoroz retains its reputation as a prestigious location for professional gatherings and for the quality organization of one of the largest international foundry events in this part of Europe.
The Organizational committee of 61th IFC Portoroz 2021 with President MSc.Eng. Mirjam Jan-Blazic is looking forward you at the Slovenian Coast in September 2021
