EUROGUSS - International Trade Fair for Die Casting

Technology, Processes, Products – the Die Casting Industry meets!

08 – 10 June 2022 in Nuremberg

EUROGUSS 2022 would have launched the year’s activities for the die-casting industry: Now, the event that was originally scheduled for 18-20 January 2022 has been postponed because of a further dynamic upswing in Covid-19 infections, which may lead to changes in legislation affecting events at short notice. In close consultation and at the request of exhibitors, partners and industry associations, NürnbergMesse has therefore decided to postpone EUROGUSS 2022 to 8-10 June 2022. EUROGUSS, the International Trade Fair for Die Casting Technology, Processes and Products, will then take place at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg with its customary scope and no change in hall layout.

Due to these after-effects of the corona pandemic, the ALUMINUM world's leading trade fair in Düsseldorf cannot take place from September 28 to 30, 2021 as planned.

After reassessing the situation, we decided, together with our partners, not to start again with ALUMINUM until autumn 2022.

Formstoff-Forum 2023

Postponement of the symposium to spring 2023

With a heavy heart, we in the organization team made the decision today to postpone the 4th Formstoff Forum 2022 to a later date in spring 2023. The imponderables in connection with the Covid-19 pandemic and all associated official requirements for major events make a reliable and successful implementation in February 2022 very difficult from our point of view. The popular foundry evening in particular, which forms the forum for the exchange of ideas between all participants, has developed into a difficult item on the program.

As soon as the appointment has been set, we will put all current information together again for you here. We would be delighted if you would be there again for the new attempt in 2023.
